A technical glitch inside the contract behind Jack Butcher’s latest NFT project, Infinity Checks, caused an unfortunate loss of all funds. As a safety precaution, the associated website is currently suspended and thoroughly being investigated.
The flaw-prone function, known as ‘regenerateMany’, was initially created to enhance visual rerolls. Butcher and his contributor Jalil have owned up to their oversights and announced a reimbursement for all collectors.

Mint, Value, Refund
Butcher is a famed figure in the decentralized domain and digital artistry. He uses his famed firm Visualize Value to curate pioneering NFT collections, Opepen and Checks, with his latest venture being Infinity Checks.
The main aim behind Infinity Checks was to harmonize the value between artistic expression and financial gain. NFT projects typically notice a spike in prices before plummeting with a blink of an eye, steering collectors to resell their digital assets rapidly rather than appreciating the artworks they entail.
To combat this issue, Infinity Checks reflect on state-of-the-art creativity. With a steady price tag of 0.008 ETH ($15) promising stability amidst market volatility. The key behind the project lies in its agile pricing structure. ETH used to mint one of the NFTs remains shielded in the collection’s smart contract, enabling collectors to refund their asset once the art is decommissioned.
While the contract’s unexpected bug underscores challenges, the swift response from Butcher and Jalil exhibit their loyalty to fans. NFT curators can learn from the Infinity Checks glitch by working toward creating more dependable ecosystems for collectors, artists and enthusiasts alike.
