NumberBoard — 2017 NFTs Strike Again

Screengrab September 9, 2021,

NFT archeologists have struck gold again and this time it’s an NFT from November 16, 2017.

The release date places it a week before CryptoKitties and more than a month earlier than a similar project that recently exploded, WeiCards.

NumberBoard is a series of editable NFTs beginning with ‘Message’ number 0. Each of the NFTs is and can be bought and sold directly through the website.

As there is no limit to the number of slots the value will clearly lie in the low numbers — my gut says sub 100 — and those special numbers that collectors prize — 420 I’m looking at you 😉

Please read everything before proceeding and DYOR.

Main Contract:

DISCLAIMER: Anything you do after this is 100% on you. Any lost funds, failed investments, or other unforeseen consequences are 100% on you. I am not responsible in any way. Turn away if you do not accept 100% responsibility.

Step 1: Go here

Step 2: Use the ‘BACK’ and ‘NEXT’ buttons to navigate through the listings.

Step 3: You can also use the ‘Go to number’ box to search for a specific listing number.

Step 4: NFTs that are listed for sale have a ‘Buyout Price’ listed. You can simply click the ‘BUY NOW’ button and follow through the steps on MetaMask to make the purchase.

IMPORTANT: If your gas is more than $200, ‘Reject’ the transaction in MetaMask and try a different listing number. The high gas cost is MetaMask’s way of telling you that the listing you are trying to claim has already been purchased. Failure to ‘Reject’ the transaction may result in you losing your ETH.

Step 5: There are several listings under number 100 that are still free to claim, you just have to pay for the gas. Note the <vacant> text in the listing. To claim, simply click the ‘TAKE’ button and you will be prompted to complete the transaction on MetaMask.

A big shout out to @0xSchatz who miraculously found the original contract and completely intact website. Very rare to say the least!

In the spirit of transparency, the four archaeologists who worked on this discovery each bought a handful of the NFTs. At the time of this writing, I counted at least 25 that were still available in the top 100 to claim for free.
