The Wojak Way is a new crypto art collection on Counterparty, a Bitcoin protocol to create tokens and NFTs.
The series provides a refreshing take on the classic internet meme legend Wojak. In the meme’s original form, he is a simple, black-outlined cartoon drawing of a bald man with a wistful expression, and is posted to generically represent emotions such as melancholy, regret, or loneliness.
We hope to see several takes of Wojak in this series in the form of memes, fine art, political satire, video GIFs etc.
Our collection is community driven and we have a token (WOJAKS) for artists to “destroy” upon acceptance as an anti-spam measure.

A: For various reasons, our collection needs to be of images standardized in size. Your publicly available individual visual High Definition version of art may be of any size. We ask that you find your own hosting, but make sure to give us the link.
Also, this is a collection of trading cards. While we like to see enhanced images with video and sound, please be mindful that the main form of your asset we will support is that of a virtual trading card.
A: Counterparty standard is to link to a png that is exactly 48 by 48 pixels. Please find free webhosting such as imgur for this thumbnail image. In hopes to make it easier to manage the entire collection as well as metadata into the future we incorporate the data into the json file itself. We prefer, if you are able, for this to be converted to base64, however this is no longer a reqirement.
A: If you are able to size your card down yourself, simply drad and drop it to base64-image.de then click the "copy image" button. This is the string should be used in our submission form in place of a thumbnail image link. Otherwise we recommend Cool php Tools who allow you to upload an image and size it in a preview. Remember to make it 48 px squared, or circle shape. The part you copy should start with
data:image/png;base64,and likely end in
Please be mindful not to copy anything extra, the default image, or the full size png
A: This allowes us to host the .json file for your asset. We will use the submission data to make the file. It will be live once your Wojak is approved. If is rejected and you choose to publish elsewhere you may update to your own json or webhost. This allows us all to use the system to represent the artwork, but also keep it private until the right time.
A: Descriptions are made public on the explorer as well as on our page, eventually. Comments on the other hand to aid in the approval process. If there is something that you want to keep between us, make it a comment.
A: You can use a telegram handle if you would like instead. But we do need a way to reach you either way.
A: IPFS is a naming system of sorts. Kinda like a magnet link for torrent trackers, if you know what those are. It is both a location and a hash of the file as a way to locate it on the internet for years to come. Like an ip number that never goes away.
IPFS will allow you and us to make sure the card artwork representing your asset will be accessible despite hosting difficulties that are more likely to happen, the more decades this collection is preserved.
Getting can IPFS string that represents your file can be quite simple thanks to nft.storage. Please make sure to upload your 400 x 560 submission and not another file, like an audio, video or large image.
A: These are optional enhancements for your asset. Please find your own hosting for these files. By giving us the links with your submission, we will be able to include this data in your json file that we host. This should allow for your extra media portrayals to be displayed on the exlorer, xchain.
A: Your humble website designer has requested to be tipped in your latest Wojak or other CounterParty cryptoart. BTC and XCP are also definately appreciated!
