Click ‘Refresh Metadata’ if there isn't any boxes saying Boost’s/Level’s, then wait a few minutes and refresh the browser.

Hopefully you will have included in the description and picture how to verify the contents of the addresses attached. has a place in the collections bar to find all other Emblem Vaults easier.

In the “Listing” panel click “Sell” to access the above page — as a 3rd party website, will have various rules and fees as how to sell an NFT, please find the information required here.

There are more options that can be used in the previously mentioned guides.

Claiming a EmblemVault

(Only to be done if you wish to have the original contents back)

Click ‘Claim (Crack Open Vault)’

This will open Metamask (you need to be the current owner of the EV (NFT) )

Click ‘Confirm’ and the transaction will go through to this screen

Metamask Matic Network

Click the area on the ‘Signature Request’ box and ‘Sign’ the transaction

Metamask Matic Network

The Emblemvault will turn Green and the options to further transaction the NFT will have been internally broken and removed from use.

At this point the Mnemonic seed phrase/Private keys will pop up, click ‘Get Keys’ to view anytime afterwards and re-sign Metamask to access it.

Due to upgrades between Bitcoin and Counterparty the ‘mnemonic phrase’ does not work with XCP, only Bitcoin wallets, so select the Private key.

If this is your first time on Counterparty, you need to make a new wallet, so after installing do the normal setup and write down the seed phrase for your new wallet.

Using click ‘Address Actions’ -> ‘Change Address’

Select ‘Imported’ -> ‘Options’ -> ‘Import Private Key’

Paste in the ‘Bitcoin Private Key’

Add some Bitcoin to the address to send out the contents to your main account.

Keeping the XCP assets in the Emblem Vault

As a new owner of a EmblemVault containing XCP assets, you don’t have to claim it, you can continue to keep it, add to the addresses and trade it onwards.

Unless you are after moving the internal Counterparty NFTs, you can still view the NFT Art, if it is left in the EV, plus you can add more to the Eth address.

Ethereum, Polygon, BSC, xDai, Fantom EVM NFTs work inside other EVM NFTs and vise versa.
