Thanksgiving weekend, November 2021.

 

WHAT ARE ‘CRYPTO HEDGIES’?

‘CRYPTO HEDGIES’ are a collection of randomly generated NFT’s created using the main character, sets and props from Sam the Hedgehog, an animated short film about Autism Acceptance.

They are ERC-721 tokens living on the Etherean blockchain.

 

WHAT DOES A ‘CRYPTO HEDGIE’ GET YOU?

Well, firstly, you get your unique Hedgie NFT. But, in addition, you also get the following:

  • A credit in the film
  • Access to early viewings of the film during production
  • Early access to the finished film
  • You get to suggest and vote on the charities supported by TheHedgie.Fund
  • You also get to be a part of deciding which future projects to develop with the TheHedgie.Fund

 

WHY 8128?

It is a perfect, happy number – seriously! Want more detail…?

8128 is the integer following 8127 and preceding 8129.

It is most notable for being a perfect number (its divisors 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 127, 254, 508, 1016, 2032, and 4064 add up to 8128), and one of the earliest numbers to be recognized as such. As a perfect number, it is tied to the Mersenne prime 127, 27 – 1, with 26 (27 – 1) yielding 8128. Also related to its being a perfect number, 8128 is a harmonic divisor number.[1]

Another consequence of 8128 being a perfect number is that it has the same prime factors as the sum of its divisors, its cototient is a power of two, and it is a harmonic seed number (though there are deficient and abundant numbers that share these properties).

8128 is the 127th triangular number, the 64th hexagonal number, a happy number, the eighth 292-gonal number, and the fourth 1356-gonal number, as well as the 43rd centered nonagonal number.[2]

WHAT MAKES THE HEDGIE FUND DIFFERENT TO OTHER NFT PROJECTS?

We are super excited about TheHedgie.Fund since it offers more than just digital artwork – it is an opportunity to be a part of something bigger that really aims to make a difference in the world. It is an opportunity to be a part of making an actual animated short film, and see behind the proverbial curtain along the way. It is also a chance to make a difference in people’s lives through some incredible charities and non-profit organisations.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE FILM WHEN IT IS FINISHED?

 

WHY HAS THE FILM PROJECT TAKEN SO LONG?

 

WHY DO YOU ONLY NEED SO LITTLE MONEY?

 

CAN YOU GIVE ME ADVICE ON AUTISM?

No, we are animators, not autism experts. We have learnt a lot about autism while working on this project and living amongst people on the spectrum, however, there are many people and organisations that are far more knowledgeable than us and if you have questions or need help, here are a few good places to start:

 

IF YOU AREN’T EXPERTS, HOW DARE YOU MAKE A FILM ABOUT AUTISM?

We are simply storytellers with a story to tell. We have close, personal ties to the autism community (one of our animators is an Aspie and we have family members with ASD) but we do not claim to speak on behalf of autistic people – this is a cause we care about and we hope that the story we tell will help the broader (mostly ‘neurotypical’) community in general to understand ASD better as well as promoting the notion of Autism Acceptance.
