Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is an NFT?
NFT stands for “Non-fungible token” and is a cool way of saying it's a truly unique digital item that YOU can buy, own, and trade.What is Minting?
Simply put, minting means creating and buying your watch. Here is the clue: To provide a fair distribution, we will reveal the watch after the minting. Until then, the watch is not visible to anybody and its form, color, and type are completely random. You are buying your watch in a black box. Then watches are revealed at the same time after the drop.What is a drop?
Our first drop will be the collection "Analog Summer 2021" and will consist of uniquely generated watches. Stay tuned for more information about the drop size and date.Can I buy a Meta Watch in USD or EUR?
No. We can only accept ETH. If you have any questions or difficulties we will find a way to help and guide you through the process. Please contact us. Do I own the Meta Watch?

.What is MetaMask?

Please note that Metawatches are NFT based artworks, not investment assets. Please only buy NFTs with money you can afford to lose (please read our terms). Please do your own research. Apart from that, we believe that Metawatches are a wonderful way to express yourself.What happens if you go out of business?
At a certain point on the roadmap - hopefully, in the next few weeks/months - we will take care to decentralize storage, e.g. on the IPFS storage system. The terms
/ agreement will still be valid.Why did you guys name the collection 'Summer'? Its already pretty cold outside!
Good point. Well, we started the whole collection in the summer. The collection expresses the mood and feelings of the "hot NFT summer" we experienced in 2021.Are you associated with Facebook aka Meta Platforms?
No. In fact, we came up with this name much earlier. We started the registration process of the trademark and bought the domain name before the "meta" renaming of Facebook was published.
There is also a "pre-smartwatch-era" company; "meta watches inc" that wanted to build watch hardware. This company is also not linked to the "meta watch association" project.Which platforms/devices are supported?
We are working very hard on bringing Meta Watches to as many devices and ecosystems as possible. First and foremost: Meta Watches run on almost any web browser - mobile and on the desktop. Currently, we can see many “walled gardens” in the wild. Apple does not allow watch apps on their devices. We, therefore, create unique backgrounds/clockfaces/wallpapers when native support is not possible at this time. We hope that someday, vendors will open up their closed systems and allow Meta Watches to run natively.
