The Five Elements of KALA PEN NFTs

Published on:

Each PEN NTF you receive when you open our mystery box will belong to an element and zodiac sign. We’ll introduce you to the five elements of KALA PEN NFTs in this article. If you want to know why KALA NFTs are PENs you can check out this article.

What are the Five Elements?

While we call them the five elements, they’re also referred to as the five phases or five agents. The term is translated from the word Wuxing in Chinese philosophy.

The five elements are wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. They are believed to be the fundamental elements of everything in the universe. These elements all have generating and overcoming Interactions with each other. You can think of it as positive or negative interactions. For example: wood fuels fire (generating), fire melts metal (overcoming).

Like the zodiac, they appear in many different fields in Chinese culture like feng shui, cosmology, medicine, music, martial arts, etc.

The Five Elements and KALA PEN NFTs

Each of our PEN NFTs will belong to an element. These will be part of the NFT attributes and you can tell just from the pen artwork. The element of a pen will determine how rare it is and how you can use it to mint new PEN NFTs.


Each PEN is assigned a rarity. These rarities are based on the Five Elements: Water, Fire, Earth, Wood, and Metal with Water being the most common and Fire the rarest. The higher the PEN’s rarity the higher its attributes. The element of your PEN NFT when you open a box is as follow.

Water 72%, Earth 12%, Wood 6%, Metal 6%, Fire 4%. (*)

(*) These values are not final and are subject to change.


The PEN’s element will also play a part in KALA’s future crafting system where you can combine and mint new PEN NFT. They will work similarly to how the elements interact with each other as we mentioned above. Crafting with pens that have generating interaction may yield better results and vice versa.

Where can I get PEN NFTs?
