  • Given the significance of the transaction, it’s important delving deeper into what happened to better appreciate what this implies for the NFT market in the future, not just for the Web 3.0 community. To note its ramifications for the NFT and Metaverse ideals of essential importance.
  • Then there’s the frenzy produced by the whole mining disaster, which has led some to believe that the layer-1 option tweeted out for apkcoin was used 100% from the beginning.
  • The massive demand for the wildly popular Other Deed NFT Mint, which garnered approximately US$320 million, posed a two-fold difficulty for Ethereum-based sales. To begin with, the surge in trade volumes pushed up the price of Ethereum gas costs, necessitating users to pay around two ETH (around US$6,000) in mint fees.

Yuga Labs recently began selling virtual land to Apecoin holders for around US$5,800 in the largest and arguably most anticipated NFT transaction so far this year (the clearing price was set at 305 Apecoin). The massive demand for the wildly popular Other Deed NFT Mint, which garnered approximately US$320 million, posed a two-fold difficulty for Ethereum-based sales. To begin with, the surge in trade volumes pushed up the price of Ethereum gas costs, necessitating users to pay around two ETH (around US$6,000) in mint fees. Second, due to a demand bottleneck, many of the participants in the sale missed out on mining and lost their Ethereum in the process.

55,000 Tokens Selling In Less Than Three Hours

Because of the pandemonium, Yug Labs tweeted shortly after the auction, We are aware that some users were unable to transact due to unreliable demand due to the Ethereum bottleneck. While YugaLabs claimed that we’ve got your back and will refund your gas, the NFT (fungible token) community has reacted negatively. Given the significance of the transaction, it’s important delving deeper into what happened to better appreciate what this implies for the NFT market in the future, not just for the Web 3.0 community. To note its ramifications for the NFT and Metaverse ideals of essential importance.

This recent event clearly raises the stakes after Yuga Labs acquired Cryptopunks earlier this year, putting the VC-backed business valued at US$4 billion in the spotlight. The scale of the mining event, according to Era Labs, caused not just Etherscan to crash, but also had a significant impact on Ethereum. It becomes evident that in order to scale correctly, Apcoin will need to migrate across its chain. We want to urge The DAO to start thinking about this, they continued. However, despite having all of the resources at their disposal, the chaotic outcome further increased distrust on Crypto Twitter.

However, before delving into the organizational aspects, the uproar among NFT novices should not be neglected when crypto is eager to see mainstream acceptance. Who’s ever going to use Ethereum? asked ap3 father.eth, an NFT influencer who announced that he will bring many pals into space for the drop: My buddies said, ‘Who’s ever going to use Ethereum?’ ‘NFTs are only for the wealthy’… I agreed with him, to be honest… Despite the fact that my early reactions were emotional… I agree… how will we demonstrate our ability to ‘innovate’? Yuga Labs raised around $320 million through minting, with 55,000 tokens selling in less than three hours.

Security Flaw That Allowed A Hacker To Steal Millions

The necessity for a better scaling mechanism was something that both Yug Labs and ap3father.eth agreed on. It is simple to propose, but scaling is a difficult process. Remember when Axi Infinity was hacked for a few hundred million dollars (specifically, US$620 million)? Instead of using Ethereum, it uses a custom-built sidechain called Ronin, which is meant to facilitate scaling by removing congestion – except that this turned out to be the source of the security flaw that allowed a hacker to steal millions.

Then there’s the frenzy produced by the whole mining disaster, which has led some to believe that the layer-1 option tweeted out for apkcoin was used 100% from the beginning. Instead of carefully structuring their launch, Era demolished Ethereum so that they had a reason to launch their own L1, Ethereum developer Mark Beylin tweeted on May 2. After the ground sale, APE needed a fresh story. Leaving aside, the claim that new L1 is the answer was a significant topic to argue.
