Some players believe that the Blur point system has been compromised, as the third-ranked player earns nearly 3000 points per day but has not purchased any NFTs for 6 days. Proof’s research director wrote a tweet analyzing how this user achieved this and believes that Blur’s rules need to be adjusted.
How did they do it? A large-scale bid for more than 60 NFTs below the top. Since the seller can only sell 60 at a time, their bot can cancel bids when someone else sells. Also, a single block can only handle 180 sales, so even if bots from multiple wallets coordinate sales, they won’t reach a bid depth of 181+. Another wallet, CBBOFE, is ranked second and earns 4200 bid points a day but hasn’t bought any NFTs in 17 hours. When viewing Blur, note that bids exceeding a depth of 180 (or 60 in most cases) are likely not genuine.
I don’t think this violates current rules because the bidder is simply adapting to the actual sales situation, rather than using MEV strategies to front-run. Considering that Blur’s goal is to reward adventurers, I hope the policy can be adjusted.
