Otherdeed Metadata Provenance Information

We are pleased to share the complete Otherdeed metadata and provenance information. In the time since the provenance hash for Otherdeed NFT collection was first written to the contract, three corrections have been made to the collection metadata, necessitating an update of the original hash on-chain. A summary of the corrections and instructions on how to compute the Otherdeed collection provenance on your own are below.

Summary of Metadata Corrections

  1. Due to a bug in the script used to generate the collection metadata, the Rugged Pickaxe artifact was incorrectly omitted from the metadata for Otherdeed NFTs that correctly depicted the artifact in the NFT image. This was updated shortly after the reveal.
  2. The Stone Hole Jackson Koda body type from the original Otherdeed collection metadata has been updated to Stone Holes. This was missed by the several rounds of audits by sensitivity readers.
  3. Due to developer oversight, a typo was included in theOcto Tentaclenotinfinalcollection Koda attribute, it is now Octo Tentacle

We began with a detailed business plan.

March 11th, 2022

Today we’re excited to announce that Yuga has acquired the IP of the CryptoPunks and Meebits NFT collections from Larva Labs. This means that we now own the brands, copyright in the art, and other IP rights for both collections, along with 423 CryptoPunks and 1711 Meebits.

When we set out to create within the NFT space, we did so with a deep admiration for CryptoPunks and the visionary work of the project’s founders, Matt and John. Their work moved NFTs, the Ethereum blockchain, and the entire crypto space forward, and influenced how we built BAYC. We’re honored to shepherd the CryptoPunks and Meebits brands into the future as part of the broader ecosystem we’re building.

“Yuga Labs are the innovators of the modern profile picture project, and the best in the world at operating these projects. They are the ideal stewards of the CrytoPunks and Meebits. In their hands, we are confident that they will continue to be vital, thriving projects in the emerging decentralized web.”

— Matt Hall and John Watkinson, co-founders of Larva Labs, CryptoPunks and Meebits

This deal came about in a very organic way from conversations between our partner Guy Oseary and the Larva Labs founders. One call led to another and here we are at this historic moment. This acquisition does not mean that Matt and John are joining Yuga. They’re going to continue running Larva Labs and will keep doing what they do best: creating awesome projects that help shape the future of web3.
