Blind Boxes minted Polygon-based NFTs on behalf of Netvrk and distributed across collections on the Blind Boxes marketplace. Collectors shopped from collections where the per box price was determined by the composition of the pool. Each pool contained a transparent mix of Standard, Medium, and Large land parcels. Both BLES and USDC were accepted.
Sales I — IV were held on the Blind Boxes dApp. Due to a bug, shoppers from collections III and IV had to be refunded or re-randomized. A Live Sale event was with a closed whitelist was conducted, live streamed and recorded. It can be viewed on the Blind Boxes Twitch channel.
To be whitelisted, collectors had to 1. verify their involvement in sales III and IV and 2. provide proof of payment in full. All responses were individually verified via the public ledger. The finalized whitelist was shared with the community via Google Doc before the event started. The document was updated in real time as the parcels were drawn from the machine.

Frequently Asked Questions
I bought a box from a compromised collection for 0 USDC, can I keep it?
NFTs sold in compromised collections will NOT be validated by Netvrk. These NFTs have been blacklisted and should not be resold. We have supplied their team with a list of all wallet addresses and NFT contract addresses that participated across the collections. Users with blacklisted NFTs in their wallets should burn them.
You started with 310 parcels, what happened to the extra lands that were not sold?
Blind Boxes minted 310 NFTs in Polygon at the request of Netvrk. Users should burn these NFTs. Wallets that were not included in any sale will be burned by Blind Boxes. They will not be redeemable for Ethereum-based Netvrk NFTs.
I paid for one NFT but now I have two NFTs. Did I win something?
Not quite. You initially purchased one or more NFTs from a compromised collection. In the original sale, you paid in full and received one or more NFTs. However, due to a bug, 90% of the NFTs in that collection were not paid for. All NFTs in compromised collections have been Blacklisted. Your wallet was automatically whitelisted and included in the randomized Live Sale event. You should burn the blacklisted NFT. It will not be honored by Netvrk.
Can I resell these Polygon NFTs?
