Truth Labs Updates Metadata, Will Migrate Contracts
Staff Writer

Truth Labs NFT contracts are undergoing an upgrade and migrating to ensure future-proofing a 5% royalty rate.

The Deets

  • 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 Details

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.

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 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.

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.

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."

Also announced was that the Grumpls and Rumpls created by GR-Y are now CC0 and that is reflected in the official goblintown Figma file.
