- Yuga Labs promptly moved to prevent secondary trading on certain exchanges.
- The Sewer Pass is inaccessible on marketplaces that don’t adhere to creator royalties.
The makers of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) made it clear they didn’t approve when marketplaces began to ease up on enforcing creator royalties on NFT purchases around the end of 2022. Upon the release of Sewer Pass NFT yesterday, Yuga Labs promptly moved to prevent secondary trading on certain exchanges.
The Sewer Pass, granting access to the new Dookey Dash online game, was released on Wednesday. For owners of Bored Ape or Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs. While only Ape NFT holders will be able to manufacture a free pass. The Ethereum NFT passes may be freely traded on secondary markets after being issued.
Creator Royalties Mandatory
As of yesterday, traders immediately learned, the Sewer Pass is inaccessible on marketplaces that don’t strictly adhere to the creator-set royalty rate. Royalties are a percentage of the NFT’s selling price. That is deducted and sent to the project’s author at the time of each transaction. Typically, this percentage is between 5 and 10 percent.
However, the pass cannot be traded on markets that do not compel dealers to pay full creator royalties. Such as Blur, LooksRare, and NFTX. A spokesperson from Yuga Labs has verified that access to all three markets is denied by the Sewer Pass smart contract, which stores the code that drives dapps and NFT projects.
In addition to Blur, LooksRare, and NFTX, the Yuga representative noted that the trading platform Sudoswap is also unable to facilitate the trade of Sewer Pass NFTs since it is based on liquidity pools rather than typical marketplace listings. Unfortunately, Sudoswap does not recognize the creator’s chosen royalty percentage.
