Requirements for Base bidding

In order to create and run Base Bidding task each User will need the Butler Basic Access (Subscription or Lifetime NFT) as well as the PRO Access on top.

If you'd like to use the Base bidding features only, feel free to create a ticket with us in Discord to get a discounted bundle price to get started.

Further you're wallet needs to hold WETH on Base L2 chain.

How does Base bidding work?

Bidding on Base Collections via OpenSea is pretty much the same as Bidding on Ethereum Collection. However there are still a few points to note which will also very likely change soon:

  • Wallets will not show Base ETH / WETH balances since Infura (our RPC Provider) is not yet offering Base RPC servers to check onchain data such as Wallet balances.

  • While bidding the tasks cannot check how much funds are available in your bidding wallet. Therefore it will always try to bid what is configured and bids will fail if not enough funds are available.

All other Features are supported same as on Ethereum Collections:

  • Adding collections to Search engine

  • Instant Counter Bidding

  • Collection Trait Offer Tasks

  • Token bidding Tasks / Manual bidding tasks

  • Wallet Overview / Flips / Notifications and Iventory

  • Security Features

Convert ETH / WETH to Base

In order to be able to bid with WETH on Base you'll have to birdge some of your WETH to the Layer 2 Base Blockchain.

  • Metamask is offering a direct Briding Service between different L2 Chains and Base is one of the supported Chains here. Simply use it with the following link: https://portfolio.metamask.io/bridge

Infura does currently not support Base L2 Chain via their free RPC servers. This is why Butler will not show your Base ETH / WETH Balance on the Dashboard or Wallets Overview.

Also Tasks will not be able to check in advance how much WETH is available in your Wallet. Butler will simply fire your bids and if your balance is not high enough the Bid will be rejected.

Create Search Engine Task

If you don't find your favorite Base collection on the Butler search engine, feel free to add it with the Button on top of the search engine.

With the Blockchain Filtering option you can filter the collections based on Blockchain as shown below.

The above screenshot shows available Base collections filtered by Blockchain on the left. The highlighted buttons will provide the following features:

  • 1st Button "Show all Traits": Drilldown into the Traits view of the collection to create trait based bidding tasks

  • 2nd Button "Check Collection Stats": Will provide a collection floor price graph for OpenSea and Blur (up to 2 months) as well as top Collection Bids and the last Sales events.

  • 3rd Button "Create Collection CTO": With this button you can create a Collection Bidding Task

  • 4th Button "Create Token Task": Here you can create a Token Bidding Task

Create Manual bidding Task

Base bidding tasks need to be created as Manual Task for now. Head to the Token Task page and hit the "Create Manual Task" Button:

Marketplace & Blockchain

With the required PRO Access you can choose the target Blockchain to "Base" with OpenSea as the Marketplace:

  • Now to create your first Base Bidding Task you'll basically have to copy & past the Link to the Base Collection in Butler and fill the "Token IDs range" field with a list of Token IDs you'd like to bid on

  • To support finding all Token IDs of a specific Trait we have two very usefull Community Bot features availbe for Members in our Discord: /traits /tokenscan

Dashboard & Wallt Details

  • Base Bidding Tasks will be part of the Live Bidding Activity Feed on the Dashboard Overview

  • Target link will link to OpenSea as usual

  • However the wallet percentage for the WETH limits are not taking Base bids into account (as they are not processed on Ethereum L1)

  • Wallet Details will show active bids on Base very similar though...

Infura does currently not support Base L2 Chain via their free RPC servers. This is why Butler will not show your Base ETH / WETH Balance on the Dashboard or Wallet Details here.

Also Tasks will not be able to check in advance how much WETH is available in your Wallet. Butler will simply fire your bids and if your balance is not high enough the bids will be rejected.
