The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.
Otherside is an NFT Metaverse project created by Yuga Labs, founders of Bored Ape Yacht Club.
On April 26th, the mechanics of the minting was shared on the official Twitter page of the project. The minting was supposed to be held exclusively in ApeCoin, so the price of it pumped up to $27 USD. The users would still need some ETH for gas fees. Importantly, the minting requires the individuals to have done KYC, – only those approved would be able to mint during the auction. One unique wallet was supposed to be able to mint a maximum of 45 pieces of land, of which 20 could make part of the same transaction.
On April 29th, a day before the minting is supposed to start, the news page of Otherside has shared a post which states the actual rules of the minting. The new mechanics is going to be the following: one wallet will have a possibility to purchase a maximum of 2 lands in the first wave of minting. A land is going to cost a fix of 305 $APE.
After the news, ApeCoin holders have dropped a decent amount of it, making the price go down to $21 USD.
More than that, some of the users have noticed that the service criteria during the KYC do not really respect the ‘decentralization politics’. For instance, the individuals willing to participate in the mint must not reside in more than 20 countries, including Russia, Serbia, Albania, Korea, and others.
The ‘adventure’ will begin on April 30th at 12 ET, on the official website of Otherside.
