Goblintown Teases Grumpl Toy Figurines
Ghost

Goblintown is creating a physical Grumpl figurine collection in collaboration with Bigshot Toy Works, the project teased on Wednesday via Twitter.

"I would like to bring the grumpl to life as a beautiful designer vinyl figure," Process Gray, co-founder of Truth Labs said on the linked form. "I think the grumpl is a cute and accessible entry point into the goblintown world, and could lead to larger merchandising opportunities and exposure for our community. I've NEVER produced a physical toy, and would love to hear feedback from the community to gauge interest."

The price will vary, with a limited small batch available in various colors and rarities, according to the form

Process Grey, the artist behind Truth Labs, teased artwork for one of the grumpls expected to reveal on November 15.

"sharing this cuz @ajt asked me to," Grey said in a tweet on Friday evening. The artist also noted that there will be eight 1/1 grumpls in the reveal on Tuesday. The grumpls being revealed will be based on burning 3 NFTs from the mcgoblintown.wtf collection.

Goblintown is one of the NFT projects that informed its holders that they had no exposure to the FTX fallout. "Our stuff is on multi-sig. Zero exchange exposure," said Alex Taub, founder of Truth Labs, in a recent tweet.

Goblintown Co-Founder Will Reimburse Hack Victims
Logan Hitchcock

Goblintown and Truth Labs co-founder Alex Taub has provided a postmortem on the SIM-swapping attack that compromised his Twitter account this morning.

After gaining control of Taub's account, the attacker attempted to persuade Taub's followers to mint a scam egg NFT, later trolling them with a picture of a luxury watch perhaps signaling their success in duping the following. 

"In terms of those affected, I want to say I'm so sorry," said Taub, "And while I'm the victim here...I didn't lose anything besides a day of work and the trust of the people that follow me. There are people that lost ETH and NFTs because of something that came from my account." 

While he knows that members of the community were affected, Taub indicated he was not sure about the size and scale of the attack. While the process may take time, he added that he intends to reimburse any compromised party with adequate proof of being affected by the hacker. 

Were you affected by this hack? If so, you can message Taub on Twitter or directly on Discord (#ajt0001).

Goblintown Co-Founder Taub's Twitter Hacked
Staff Writer

Goblintown and Truth Labs co-founder Alex Taub’s Twitter account was hacked early Monday morning, according to a tweet from Truth Labs.

The link to mint a fake eggs NFT led to a site where users clicked on a “Claim Eggs” tab. Lucky Trader could not ascertain the scope of the hack or the contract involved as of Monday morning, as the site is currently down.

The compromised account then directed users to a fake Revoke.cash website saying “GUYS SOMEONE SIMSWAPPED ME THE EGGS LINK IS FAKE AND THEY ARE COMPRIMISING OUR CONTRACT IF YOU INTERACTED WITH OUR CONTRACT BEFORE YOU COULD BE AT RISK."

Truth Labs updated users on the account Monday, which has changed its name to @ajtgoblin and @Zachxbtlover. Taub has been removed from Truth Labs-related Discords, the company said.

AJT's twitter account is still hacked, and the username is now @ajtgoblin. He is aware, and we are working on regaining access to his twitter. Please do not interact with this account or any links it is posting,” Truth Labs tweeted.

The hacker trolled Taub's followers Monday posting an image of a luxury watch with the words "THX GOBLIN FAMMMMM."

CryptTV Partners With Goblintown for Low-Edition, Free-to-Mint NFT Collection
Jason Bales

CryptTV, an American entertainment company focused on horror-theme digital content, is partnering with Goblintown to giveaway 25 allowlist spots for its upcoming limited-edition, 666-piece, free-to-mint NFT collection called Scamp.

Goblintown holders can enter to win here.

This upcoming collection is CryptTV's Genesis drop, and will provide holders access to well-developed IP in the future.

Founded by Jack Davis and Eli Roth in 2015, CryptTV is backed by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions, one of the most popular horror-themed production companies in the world. The company is most known for its viral horror characters Birch and Look-See and has shows on every major streaming platform (Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime).

Davis will donate the company's IP to a community-driven DAO, grow its value through web3 initiatives, and intends to pivot the company's operations to the blockchain and NFTs, according to Premint's description.

Jack Davis is part of Forbes 30-under-30 club. Eli Roth has produced, directed, or otherwise worked on popular movies like Hostel, Inglourious Basterds, and Cabin Fever. And Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions are creating or have created some of the most iconic horror movies over the last few years, including The Purge, Insidious, Halloween, Paranormal Activity, The Black Phone, and the new The Exorcist.

Truth Labs Shares Universe Map, Schedules Upcoming AMA
Logan Hitchcock

Truth Labs, the creators of goblintown and IlluminatiNFT, shared an official universe map and scheduled an upcoming AMA for 2:00 p.m. ET today. 

The universe map provides an easy-to-follow visual of all the NFT projects and offshoots from Truth Labs, perhaps most notably the work in creating the viral sensation, goblintown. 

Goblintown eventually expanded into mcgoblins and grumpls, and the universe map includes a few redacted items that suggest more is on the way. 

The same can be said for the Illuminati and 187 NFT projects, which both contain unaccounted-for roadmap items in the universe map. 

Last but not least, Truth's latest endeavor, resurrecting CryptoFace, also found a place on the universe map with indications that at least four DAO-led projects and initiatives are set to spring off from the project. 

While little is known about why the universe map was shared, more information will likely be provided during the upcoming AMA. 

This is a developing story and will be updated by Lucky Trader as more information is learned.

IlluminatiDAO Resurrects Early On-Chain Profile Picture Project
Logan Hitchcock

IlluminatiDAO has resurrected an old on-chain profile picture project, CryptoFace, according to a tweet from Truth Labs

According to the announcement from the team, CryptoFace - which was launched three months before CryptoPunks - was initially created as part of a hackathon but abandoned quickly after very little external traction. 

"CryptoFace’s development pre-dates any ETH NFT standards, so it has been sitting on the blockchain with only a handful of contract interactions in the past 5+ years. The CryptoFace project was broadly intended for identity-based use cases, such as using the profile pictures within social media apps. This is in contrast to CrytpoPunks, as early news articles focused on their description as collectible digital art," says Alex Taub, co-founder of Truth Labs. 

Taub outlined the DAO's decision to resurrect the project in greater detail in his Medium post released earlier today

While the DAO is resurrecting the project as close to the original intent, one major change will come in the IlluminatiDAO resurrection - the project will have a set supply.

"The IlluminatiDAO’s opinion was that leaving an unlimited supply wouldn’t maximize the historical significance of the project (being the first set collection on top of the OG contract)," reads Taub's post. 

How Will It Work? 

Each minter will be able to specifically customize their PFP using CryptoFace, rendering a likeness in a single transaction. 

In that transaction, all minters will register their unique hash to the original smart contract and produce an NFT that utilizes the metadata from the original contract hash, yet on the new smart contract from the IlluminatiDAO. This will allow the NFT to maintain "direct provenance from the historical contract while being usable and meaningful on modern token platforms and dApps."

In another twist, initial minters will also receive a royalty on any sales of the NFT in the future, equal to 3% of the total sale. Any new buyer will receive the commercial license to the image and corresponding NFT. 

Who Is Eligible to Mint? 

All Illuminati NFT and 187 NFT holders will be eligible to mint one CryptoFace per NFT held via the CryptoFace.me website

There will be no cost associated with the mint, and all holders will have 30 days to mint their respective NFTs. 

Another 1,000 mints will be available via raffle for goblintown.wtf holders, a Truth Labs project. 

Additionally, another 685 spots will be open to the public via a PREMINT raffle. The PREMINT raffle will close on Monday, October 10 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

This is a developing story and will be updated by the Lucky Trader Staff.

GR-Y, a co-founder of Truth Labs, announced that Grumpls with metadata issues have been fixed in a recent tweet.

This fixed was rolled out around a week ago according to GR-Y but it was publicly posted today with an acknowledgment that the messaging was delayed, citing that "things have been hectic."
