The long-awaited Akumu Dragonz NFT collection‘s mint event was tragically canceled due to a defect in the smart contract, which made it reportedly loopable.
The Bryoku Dragonz team’s latest cross-chain NFT collection is Akumu Dragonz. On May 31st, a total of 10,000 HD pixel Dragonz NFTs were released for 0.169 ETH.
However, due to the loophole, the mint was a failure for a short period of time, and 5% of the total supply of the collection was abused.
MouseDev, a content developer and NFT influencer, appeared to be the savior as the events unfolded. In a thorough Twitter thread, he encouraged the Akumu Dragonz team to design and deploy another smart contract.
The @AkumuDragonz contract is exploitable in the whitelist and public phases, and those are non upgradable, so it seems the sale cannot continue on the original contract. However I have a solution that can be used to still allow the sale to be finished on another contract.

His method ensured that the original Akumu Dragonz contract would remain as the true NFT collection. The remaining supply can be coined in the vault before being transferred to a custom contract.
After the team builds and deploys a new contract, they must send the remaining supply to the vault and then transfer vault tokens to the smart contract, according to MouseDev. Users can now purchase NFTs through the new contract.
“We are currently being helped by some of the greatest advocates and dev mega brains in the space like @ MouseDev to work on a realistic way around it,” the Akumu Dragonz team tweeted after he submitted the topic.
Later, the team announced that they will give up the supply for the allowlist to participate, and that they will stay on the present contract with a relaunch for an allowlist mint scheduled for 48 hours after the stop.
