Frequently Asked Questions

  • The mint will begin at 9pm ET on 4/30.

  • 305 ApeCoin per Otherdeed.

  • Minting will be done in waves — the price per Otherdeed will stay the same, and the per-wallet limit will increase. At the start of the sale (wave 1), there will be a limit of 2 Otherdeeds minted per wallet. As soon as gas returns to reasonable levels and the amount of wallets minting decelerates, wave 2 will begin, during which KYCed wallets can mint up to an additional 4 Otherdeeds. Each increase in the per-wallet limit will be announced on the Otherside official channels: @OthersideMeta on Twitter, and Discord:

    Here’s the Mirror post on how we decided on the mint mechanics and details on how it works.

  • There are four requirements to mint in the sale:

    • ApeCoin for minting

    • ETH for gas

    • Prior KYC approval through Blockpass

    • Wallet pre-approval, which can be done on this site starting at 9am ET on 4/30.

    Note: You can only mint with the wallet you KYCed and pre-approved with.

  • A total of 55,000 Otherdeeds will be available for purchase by KYCed wallets.

  • The claim limit is 1 Otherdeed per MAYC or BAYC NFT (must be claimed within 21 days of the sale ending). The claim itself is free, but normal gas fees apply.

  • You can purchase Otherdeeds on the secondary market on our official Opensea. Please note, if you see NFTs of individual Kodas, resources, or artifacts for sale on Opensea or elsewhere, it’s a scam.

  • It is highly recommended that you pre-approve your wallet before the mint. That said, if your KYC was approved, then yes - you can still approve your wallet during the mint. The approval will be a separate transaction right before the mint transaction that grants the smart contract permission to access your funds to mint.

  • No. KYC approval is required to mint an Otherdeed.

  • No. The Otherside contains 200,000 unique plots of land that can be claimed with Otherdeeds when Otherside launches. The first 100,000 Otherdeeds are available on April 30, 2022. The biomes featured in the next 100,000 Otherdeeds have yet to be revealed.

  • There are four requirements to mint in the sale:

    • Impersonators claiming to be involved in a project, tagging people in a post with a link

    • Fake support accounts phishing for seed phrases

    • Fake airdrops that look legit, but direct people to a scam website

  • An Otherdeed is your key to the Otherside. Otherdeed holders can participate in prototype builds, demos, and tests that shape the final game design and experience. Every Otherdeed is also a dynamic NFT, built as a collection of elements — from resources to Kodas, and will evolve as you move component pieces around.

  • Every Otherdeed is a dynamic NFT, built as a collection of all of the elements — from resources to Kodas. Rather than a static representation of a piece of land, your Otherdeed is designed to evolve along with what you choose to do in the game.

  • Otherdeed holders help create Otherside by participating in demos, prototype builds, in-person events, and contests. Every interaction you have with Otherside will help it grow — you don’t need any special or technical knowledge. An SDK is a Software Development Kit. Otherside SDKs give developers the tools they need to build characters, character skins, structures, in-game items, and minigames for Otherside.
