patrons##### Tiers

###### Early access

Sidenote: Did you know that for small payments online, the lower the amount, the higher the percentage that goes to processing fees? I'm endlessly grateful to anyone willing to contribute, at whatever level, but as you've come this far I'd be remiss not to mention there's more bang for your buck at higher tiers.

###### Double the love, half-off the store

On top of early access, you get 50% off pricing on anything in the 3b1b store (plushie pi creature, shirts, math socks, etc.)

The thought is that Patrons are already supporting the channel in one way, so we're happy to take lower-to-negative margins on any channel souvenirs you'd fancy as a token of thanks.

###### Animation previews

For all you lovely Fourers (Fouriers?), while I'm working on a new video I'll give you __sneak peeks__ of the animations I'm making. And of course, you get the early access and discount rewards as well.

###### Transformed name animation

In addition to previous rewards, if you want, I'll animate the text of your name in some 3b1b-style mathy way.

###### Description credits

Thank you! You are not kidding around when it comes to supporting more math videos for the world. In addition to all previous rewards, I'll include your name (or rather, Patreon user name) in a wall of thanks linked in the description of the videos you support, __like this__.

###### On-screen credits

Aha! You thought it was powers of 2, didn't you? Looks like someone never saw that early video I did on circle division.

For your seriousness about this project, I'll include your name on the screen at the end of all videos that you support.

###### Grothendieck prime

From __this biographical article:__

*In a mathematical conversation, someone suggested to Grothendieck that they should consider a particular prime number. “You mean an actual number?” Grothendieck asked. The other person replied, yes, an actual prime number. Grothendieck suggested, “All right, take 57.”*

Let's just say that he was more on the abstract side of things.

###### Einsteinium

Well, my friend, perhaps you'd prefer to relate to Einstein. You see, the next number in our sequence (which is __http://oeis.org/A000127__, by the way), not only has the privilege of being a Kaprekar number, and the sum of three consecutive cubes, it is also the atomic number of Einsteinium.

###### Prime-generator

Okay, I'll admit it, the only reason I keep adding tiers here is because of an itch to round off to the final power of 2 in the sequence.

Fun fact, look at the polynomial n^2 - n + 41. Despite the relative simplicity of this polynomial (it's only quadratic!), it will produce prime numbers for n = 1...40. It almost feels like magic.

The reason underlying this has to do with the fact that 163 is a __Heegner number__, the largest one in fact.
