1. Preparations

1.1 Get your ETH prepared

ZKSpace is a Layer 2 protocal built on Ethereum, and for the James Rodríguez Zurda NFT sale, we accept payment in ETH. Therefore, you need to have some ETH in your Layer 2 wallet prior to bidding and buying. ETH can be deposited via Ethereum-L2 transfer or the Fiat on-ramp service provided by ZKSpace and Banxa.

The deposit amount can be determined at your discretion based on the funds expected to be put into the bidding and buying mystery boxes. The public sale price for a mystery box is 0.15 ETH (0.12 ETH for whitelist users). There is no upper limit on how many mystery boxes one address can purchase.

After the deposit, your asset can be viewed in your Layer 2 wallet, as shown below:

2. Participate in auction

2.1 Place a bid

It takes only 2–3 clicks to bid in a ZKSea auction. Click on James Rodríguez on the navigation bar and choose Auction in the drop-down menu.

You can browse the NFTs listed for auction on this page. Click on the NFT you want to bid on, then you will be directed to the bidding page.

(The image here is for reference only. Please see the event page on August 15th for actual information.)

On this page, you can see the current highest bid on this item, under which you will see a box that allows you to enter the amount you are willing to offer. Enter an amount and click on Place a bid to continue.

  • Bid increment

Your bids must be at least one bidding increment over the Current Bid. For instance, if the current bid is 0.2 ETH and the bid increment is 0.05 ETH, the subsequent bid should be at least 0.25 ETH.

  • Bidding deposit

Bidding is free on ZKSea, however, to avoid malicious bidding, an auction deposit will be required when bidders make their first bid. The system will automatically refund the deposit after the auction.

Please note that if you are the winning bidder but fail to pay within 2 hours, the deposit will not be refunded.

The deposit is generally 0–50% of the starting bid, and it will be displayed on the page when the auction starts. Subsequent biddings do not require repeated payment of deposits, and no gas fees are required.

Confirm bid details in the pop-up window, click on Place a bid, and sign in the pop-up window of your wallet. Your bid has been successfully submitted.

2.2 Increase your bids

During the auction, all bids on an NFT will be displayed on the bidding page, including bidding time, addresses of the bidders and amount. If you see the current bid keeps creeping higher and higher and you don’t want to be outbid, you can increase your bid simply by bidding in exactly the same way you placed your original bid.

2.3 Payment

2.3.1 Pay for your purchase

If you are the highest bidder when the auction ends, you will be one step away from obtaining your Zurda NFT. You have two hours to make the payment. Click on Payment to continue.

2.3.2 Receive your NFT

Once the payment is received, we will mint the NFT and send it to your Layer 2 wallet. You can view it in your NFT Wallet, as shown in the picture below.

After that, you can hold your NFT(s) here, list it on ZKSea for sale, send it to another Layer 2 address, or withdraw it to the ETH mainnet.

2.3.3 Consequences for Late- or Non-payment

If you fail to pay within two hours of the auction, the deposit paid previously will not be refunded, and the transaction opportunity will go to the address with the second highest bid (a prompt will be displayed on the user’s page), which also has a two-hour payment time. We suggest you watch your bid during and after the auction.

3. Buy a mystery box

Click on James Rodríguez on the navigation bar and choose Mystery Box in the drop-down menu.

Choose how many mystery boxes you want to buy by clicking on the + and buttons. The total price will be calculated and displayed on the page in real-time. Then click on Buy Now.

Sign in the pop-up window of your wallet to confirm the payment. Then you can enjoy the joy of opening the mystery box and checking what kind of NFT you have obtained.

You can then view your NFT in your Layer 2 wallet.
