This new Series 2 Scene pays homage to VeeCon 2023 in Indianapolis, where OSF participated as a speaker and encapsulates the spirit of the host city. In particular, this Eruption is a heartfelt gesture to those who possess OSF’s inaugural collaboration piece with VeeFriends, Gift Goat #11 “Rektography.” To participate, individuals must own BOTH “Rektography” and a VeeFriends Series 2 token. This special eruption is a unique memento celebrating the interconnected world of VeeFriends.
Eruption 13 will last 9 days and require participants to burn any BOOK GAMES token. To be mindful of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, this Eruption will run from Nov. 22nd to Dec. 1st.

If you are unsure which tokens you want to swap, we encourage you to utilize our brand new Scene Swap preview generator at veefriends.com/swap-preview. Here you can input ANY token ID from Series 2 and see how it would look scene swapped. To generate previews, there’s NO NEED to sign into an account or connect a wallet.
Eruption 13 features the renowned artist OSF, recognized for his digital collections, including Gift Goat #11 digital gift: “Rektography” by OSF. OSF, also known as Ovi Faroq, is a distinguished artist and investor with expertise in trading illiquid assets. Hailing from Cambridge, England, he now divides his time between the UK and the US. Unveiling his first NFT artwork in October 2021, OSF has rapidly expanded his portfolio, attracting a notable collector base and a dedicated following. Noteworthy milestones include Snoop Dogg’s acquisition of two pieces, the Rektguy collection’s impressive 26k ETH in volume, and his role in co-founding companies like Degenz, Tabz NFT, and Canary Labs.
OSF’s artistic style draws inspiration from the nightlife of diverse cities often featuring flashing lights and urban backdrops. These stylistic features that make OSF’s artwork so unique and identifiable are featured in the “Indy Canal 2023” scene. This scene is a dynamic artwork of flashing lights and background motion that bring the cityscape to life!

Scene Swap is an incredibly easy process, just follow the steps below and you should have no issue with the lava flow of metadata changes that will occur:
1. Begin by accessing Burn Island at https://veefriends.com/burn-island
2. Verify your eligibility by logging into your account and clicking “Check Eligibility”
3. If you qualify, you will receive a prompt to proceed to the next steps, click “Proceed”
4. Choose the token(s) you wish to burn and acknowledge the Terms and Conditions
5. Handpick your eligible Series 2 Tokens for Scene Swap!
6. After you make your selection, you will be redirected to a ‘Preview Page’ where you will be able to see the potential final products of your burn-scene swap — click ‘Accept’ if you are satisfied with the changes you are about to make to your token backgrounds.
- When you decide to burn tokens, you’ll need to take a couple of confirmation steps. First, you must “confirm” in IMX, and then you’ll need to “sign” in Metamask or another non-custodial wallet to verify the action. It’s crucial not to navigate away from the Burn Island page during this process. You’ll receive an on-screen notification once the token burn has been confirmed.
7. Finally, confirm and execute the token burn
Key points to keep in mind when burning BOOK GAMES tokens via IMX:
- You’ll need access to the wallet holding your BOOK GAMES token to complete the burn
- IMX burns work on desktop only
- Please have all tokens being burnt in the same wallet at the time of burn
Please Note: One swap will be available for each unique character pose. Holders of the same character can only swap if their pose differs from those already swapped. Tokens that have already had their combo pose/background swapped will appear in the “Ineligible Tokens” section of the token selection screen.
How many Scenes are available to Scene Swap?
A: In Eruption 13 there are 555 total scene swaps available.
Can I return to my original Series 2 Scene if I change my mind?
A: In this Eruption, all Scene Swaps are final once completed. You will not be able to revert back to your original Series 2 scene.
Can I Scene Swap a token that has been used in a previous Scene Swap?
A: Yes you can. Tokens that have been used in previous Scene Swaps can be used in future Scene Swaps, but please note, a single token cannot be used multiple times within the same Scene Swap.
Can I preview the token artwork of this swap before submitting the irreversible burn to swap?
A: Yes, you’ll have access to a token preview as part of the process, allowing you to review the artwork before deciding to proceed with the swap. Additionally, you can use the Scene Swap preview generator at veefriends.com/swap-preview to view any token as a scene swap.
If I accidentally close out during the swapping process, what should I do?
A: If you accidentally close out during the swapping process, you can try again and should be met with any technical difficulties. If you have any issues please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What should I do if I get stuck on the swap page and need assistance?
A: Ideally, you should wait on the swap page for the process to complete. However, if you encounter issues or have questions, you can reach out to our support team at email@example.com. Keep in mind that once you hit the “submit” button, the process runs on the backend, and it will still complete even if you leave the page. You may not see a success message immediately, but most swaps, especially those involving fewer than 5 tokens, should finish in approximately 10 seconds (though larger batches may take a bit longer).
What is Burn Island?
A: Burn Island is a platform that lets VeeFriends holders turn their NFTs into possible physical or virtual prizes using deflationary technology. Each “Eruption” offers unique rewards and NFT burn requirements, unlocking endless possibilities for holders.
What is a Scene Swap?
A: Scene Swaps are a unique way to transform your VeeFriends Series 2 token(s) artwork by changing the background scene through Burn Island. VeeFriends will collaborate with various artists and brands to create exclusive Series 2 Scenes, allowing Eruption participants to alter the appearance and metadata of their tokens permanently.
*It’s important to note that your Series 2 NFT will NOT be burned. You will, at times, be required to burn a different VeeFriends token such as BOOK GAMES, or other eligibility requirements, while some swaps may not require a burn to change your existing Series 2 NFT Scene and related metadata properties information. The choice of change falls within your hands, you choose your own destiny. If you do not participate in Burn Island “Scene Swaps,” no metadata altering will happen, and your Series 2 NFT will remain in its original state.
