If you are thinking of buying an unsig, here are some things to keep in mind!
Pick an unsig you really, really like.
What to look for
Unlike most CNFTs on the market, unsigned_algorithms are notoriously difficult to evaluate where rarity is concerned because each piece is unique, but there are some statistics on how frequently certain patterns occur in the collection. Information presented here is NOT intended as investment advice.
How many properties does it have? (1-6)
Is it part of a named form collection? (e.g., “Butterflies,” or “Zig-zags”)
Is it part of a named color collection? (e.g., “Twilights”)
How many output colors (OC) does it have? (1-64)
Has it been sold before?
Does it have an assessment certificate? Some unsig owners have purchased assessment certificates from CNFT_art, which documents the rarity and value assigned by the group, based on a number of factors.
Does it have matches? One quality of unsigs that is attractive to many buyers and holders is the potential they have for matching along faces of other unsigs, and can be used to create a larger composition.

|unsig||Image||Properties||Form collection||Color collection||Output colors|
There are 31,119 unsigs in the entire collection.
Unsigs have 0 to 6 properties.
|Properties||Count of unsigs||Pct of collection|
|Example||Name||Count of unsigs|
|Single Diamonds (H)||98|
|Single Diamonds (V)||42|
|Triple Diamonds (H)||77|
|Triple Diamonds (V)||42|
Color collections are sets of unsigs grouped together by the combination of colors that are visible.
|Name||Count of unsigs|
Output colors (OC) are the number of colors present in the unsig at a pixel-by-pixel level, from 1-64. It is sometimes difficult to tell exactly how many colors are present due to gradient effects, but some distinctive features are more present in some OC counts than others.
