Yuga Labs has returned the gas fees of everyone who failed to mint an “Otherdeed” non-fungible token (NFT) April 30, the metaverse firm announced in a Wednesday tweet thread.
“We have refunded gas fees to everyone who made a transaction that failed due to network conditions caused by the mint,” Yuga Labs said in the thread. “The fees have been sent back to the wallets used for the initial transaction.”
Yuga had announced the refund days in advance and warned of potential phishing scams impersonating the firm, which users have reported to be widespread over the past few days.
Following the many technical difficulties of the launch, Yuga alluded to potentially moving its metaverse from Ethereum to its own chain, though details on that development have not been clarified in the days since then.
UPDATE (May 4, 20:16 UTC): Added info about Yuga's gas fees to send out the refunds.
