Lost Poets is a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection and a strategy game by Pak, that includes 65536 obtainable NFTs and 1024 Origin NFTs. The project's release is broken down into several stages. 
The first installment of the collection began with the sale of "Pages," a single, multi-edition NFT set, each allowing to mint a "Poet," an AI-generated portrait designed by Pak. The price of each page was set at 0.32 ETH during the sale. 
Expanding upon Pak's last project, The Fungible collection, the $ASH ecosystem will be in use throughout the duration of the "Lost Poets" project. A snapshot of $ASH holders was taken prior to launch and 7,586 Pages were airdropped to those with 25 or more $ASH in their wallets at the time of the snapshot. 
After the sale ended, there was a waiting period of roughly 2 to 3 weeks before a new mechanism was initiated allowing Pages holders to claim their "Poets." Each Page yielded a Poet, meaning the total supply of Poets could be on par with Pages, but some are sure to hold their "Pages," which according to Pak will "always have exchange value." 
Every day for a year, a random pair of Origin Poets will be dropped to collectors. Each Origin Poet will only be able to access its own latents during these drops. In other words, holders have a chance to earn Origin tokens for each and every one of their Poets every day.
The value structure of the collection will change when a new mechanism is introduced at the "The Twist" stage of the game.
The Burn/$ASH ecology is connected to the Lost Poets collection. Taking into consideration current $ASH holders' balances, 7586 of the 65536 pages are divided to them based on a snapshot made right before the debut of this website.
All Poet NFTs will be included to the Burn.art high tier list and will award $ASH when burned once the project plan is complete.
