Love Death + Robots
One of the hottest Netflix shows is Season 2 of Love, Death + Robots. It’s a short animated series of 9 standalone episodes, spanning genres like fiction, comedy, horror and fantasy.
What piqued my interest was the NFT element to Netflix’s promotion of Love, Death + Robots.
Because there are 9 episodes in Season 2, they have released 9 QR-coded artwork across the digital and physical world. Whether it’s embedded in the episodes themselves (found 2 that way!), on billboards or also across their social platforms.
The way to collect the NFTs is simple:
- Find the NFT
- Scan it
- Connect to your Metamask
- Pay a small transaction Fee
- Et voilà! The NFT is yours. You won’t see it in your wallet, but if you connect your wallet to Opensea, you’ll see it there.

Step-by-Step Guide to Love, Death + Arts
Here is what it looks like to find the first 3 NFTs in the Love, Death + Robots scavenger hunt:
In 2 of the Love, Death + Robots episodes (hint: the first and final episode), you will have a QR Code pop up in the middle of the episodes.
Upon scanning, you’ll be led to a page showing you the NFT you’ve found.
You can then choose to, collect the digital artwork, connect your wallet to collect it as an NFT or do both.
If you scroll further down, you’ll see the applicable terms for these NFTs. It’s not long:
Upon clicking “MINT ME”, you’ll be asked to connect either your Metamask or Coinbase.
Here is what it’ll look like when you’re about to mint (note: ran out of Eth for this instance, but screenshot is shown for illustrative purposes)
Don’t make the initial mistake I did before and make sure you’re on the Ethereum network! You should be paying your gas fees in Eth (see above).
And not MATIC (below), which is on the Polygon network. Even though the transactions might go through on the Polygon chain, you won’t get the NFTs in your account because it’s the wrong chain!
Upon minting, you will need to head to Opensea, connect your Metamask wallet and go to your profile for the list of NFTs you own.
Your new Love, Death + Arts should be right there, like this one:
If you’re curious, the Opensea link for the Jibaro NFT can be found here. As of 24 May 2022, over 16.4k copies of the Jibaro NFT have been minted, with an average price of 0.003 Eth ($5.96).

P/S: There’s no utility or resale price attached to these NFTs beyond pure collection/fun value, which I really liked.
