Latest goblintown.wtf News
Truth Labs, the founders of Goblintown, is launching Goblintown Season 2, per a tweet from the project and a report from CoinDesk.
- Season 2 revolves around Big Inc, a large corporation in Goblintown.
- Big Inc is a 15,000-unit sequel to the Goblintown collection.
- The mint price is 0.096 ETH.
- There is no disclosed date or time for the mint yet.
- The top 1,000 worst traders get a 24-hour window to mint for free.
- Holders of other Truth Labs collections can mint for free as well.
- 50% discount available for those paying with meme coin $PEPE.
Goblintown Season 2, or "Big Inc," is a 15,000-unit sequel to the Goblintown collection and aims to celebrate the culture and community of web3 by rewarding the "worst traders in NFT land." To determine eligibility, Truth Labs will analyze wallet data and rank traders on the "Down Bad Board," a leaderboard of the worst traders in the space. The top 1,000 worst traders will have a 24-hour window to mint their Big Inc NFTs for free.
Holders of other Truth Labs collections (Goblintown, Grumpl, and Illuminati) will also enjoy the privilege of minting for free, depending on what combination of NFTs they possess, by way of receiving Big Inc acceptance letters. Additionally, Goblintown Season 2 will offer discounts for traders paying with the popular meme coin $PEPE. The mint price is 0.096 ETH, but those who pay with $PEPE will get 50% off and instead pay 0.048 ETH.
❗ Why It Matters
The appetite for another collection of 15,000 in this market remains to be seen. But by giving less successful traders priority, Goblintown Season 2 is introducing a unique mechanic that seems pretty out there, but it's a new concept nonetheless.
Additionally, offering discounts for using $PEPE brings utility to the meme coin and showcases the interconnectivity of NFTs and other cryptocurrencies.

🎤 Founder Feedback
Currently everyone is down and to a lot of folks it feels like only the influencers survived the past year. Goblintown originally celebrated on the collective doom of the first wave of collapse -- and Big Inc wants to now reward those who have stuck around!Process Grey, co-founder and artist at Truth Labs
Truth Labs NFT contracts are undergoing an upgrade and migrating to ensure future-proofing a 5% royalty rate.
- Metadata refreshed for goblintown, Illuminati NFT, The187, and Grumpls
- Contract migration scheduled for this weekend
- Blur bids disabled on 04/13 at noon ET
- NFTs airdropped to holders within 24 hours
- 5% royalty rate enforced for all Truth collections moving forward
The metadata for the four popular NFT collections has been refreshed, poking fun at creators and royalties in typical Truth fashion. The new metadata features a big middle finger highlighted by "F*** royalties, F*** supporting builders," in the background. The official contract migration is set for this weekend. To facilitate this process, Blur bids will be disabled starting at noon ET on Thursday, April 13. Once the migration is complete, new NFTs on the upgraded contract will be airdropped to their respective holders within 24 hours.
According to Truth Labs, the upgrade is essential to ensure the collections' flexibility and future-proofing, especially with Season 2 around the corner.
❗️Why It Matters
Truth joins Overlord (formerly Creepz) and others in the quest to protect royalties by migrating its initial NFT contracts. Its just one of the latest trends seemingly created as a result of the marketplace wars and "race to 0 royalties" in order to attract more trading activity. While having the ability to enforce royalties on-chain will protect companies abilites to generate at least some income via secondary trading, projects will still need to find other revenue sources if they wish to create sustainable businesses, particularly if the end of Blur farming and incentivized trading brings a decline to the overall secondary market.
🎤 Community Quotes
The metadata change prompted some laughs, some headturns, and some push back.
What a joke lol another project that delivers no value but wants more moneyNonFungibleIan
🎬 Take Action
Truth is urging users to not buy any of the existing NFTs after Blur bids are disabled, at that time the existing NFTs and the contracts they exist on will become obsolete. Holders do not need to take any further action, as you will be airdropped the new NFTs after the contract migration.

"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.
Goblintown tweeted out for its grumpl holders to refresh their metadata to reveal. 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 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 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."
