Aesthetics are un(der)rated
PopRank provides the missing aesthetic metric in NFT appraisals and insight into our tastes in NFT artwork, the focal point that unifies all of our NFT communities.

How It Works
The Hot Seat
Each round, two random NFTs will pop up, and you pick the one with the best aesthetic. Your choices affect each NFT contestant's Elo rating and the collection's rankings. The Elo rating, as popularized by the game of chess, is a metric used to rank competitors in zero-sum games.
Community is Everything
The more participation, the more representative the rankings are of the subjective tastes of you, the community, thereby producing a new metric for NFT collections. Aesthetic rankings may also serve as a tool for future giveaways, raffles, and competitions.
PopRank Beta v1 ReleaseAugust 2021 • Release Notes
Started as a humble hackathon project, called WickedRank within The Wicked Craniums community, PopRank Beta v1 was tailored to The Wicked Craniums collection. Feedback and data gathered from WickedRank was used to fine-tune our game and rating system ahead of the initial PopRank release.
PopRank Beta v2 ReleaseOctober 2021 • Release Notes
PopRank Beta v2 launches with a UX overhaul and an additional collection: The Wicked Stallions. With the v2 release, we introduce improved server-side functionality to reach high confidence in collection rankings more quickly as well as Web3 authentication for extra security and participation metrics.
PopRank ReleaseNovember 2021
PopRank launches with many of your favourite collections. Around this time, we will utilize the data and feedback produced from the PopRank Beta to publish a whitepaper that details the integrity of our rating system and head-to-head ranking model.
PopRank Discord BotDecember 2021
With this release, we'll enable PopRank to be played from within any listed collection's Discord server via the PopRank Discord bot. Think your NFT has the best aesthetics in its collection? You can now put that to the test!
PopRank Discord Server ReleaseLate November / Early December 2021
Inspired by Rarity Sniper, users are empowered to query our aesthetics rankings with familiar commands, without ever leaving Discord, as let's face it — the majority of our time is spent on Discord anyway. In addition, we'll publish API documentation to guide integration of PopRank data into third-party apps and analytics dashboards. This also includes being able to embed the PopRank ranking game within NFT collection websites!
PopRank: Visions of the Future2022
Our ambitious ideas start with providing deep insights into collections, individual NFTs, and the ever-changing tastes of NFT connoisseurs. Along the way we'll conduct giveaways, and by the end, we'll expand far beyond generative avatar collections. Photography portfolios, skins in video games — if it's an NFT, we can rank it!
How do I pick the winner in the head-to-head battle of NFTs?
If you're on desktop, click on the winner. If you're on mobile, tap on the winner.
Do I have to rate all pairs in a collection in order to impact the rankings?
No! As an example, The Wicked Craniums consists of 10,762 items, which means there are 57,904,941 unique pairs. It would be wicked — to a criminal degree — if you had to go through all unique pairs. Rest assured, even a single head-to-head round will have an impact on the rankings, as long as you're connected with your web3 wallet.
Who can participate in the ranking of a collection?
Which wallets are supported on PopRank?
MetaMask is the only supported wallet on PopRank. There is no guarantee that other wallets work with the site.
Are there any prizes or rewards for playing?
We plan to issue rewards and prizes in future giveaways to active PopRank participants.
Do I need to own a collection's NFT in order to see the rankings for that collection?
No! Anyone can view the rankings, if the rankings are made available.
Why can't I see the rankings for a collection?
Rankings are hidden until enough rounds are played, which you can see measured by the progress bar in the Play section.
What does the 🔥 mean in the Rankings section?
Each NFT in the collection is assigned an Elo rating, represented by 🔥. The rankings in the Rankings section are in descending order of 🔥. Each round played in the Play section will have an impact on the 🔥 of the NFT contestants involved, thus impacting the rankings order over time.
Will you support other collections?
Definitely. Read the roadmap above to learn more about our planned schedule in rolling out more collections!
