I have the following contract deployed to the Rinkeby testnet: https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/token/0x2d29fc6c1b20c35669fb55fa3144cdd529302256

I deployed the metadata and images using IPFS. When I try to get the metadata for one of the tokens using truffle console, I get the seemingly correct result:

truffle(rinkeby)> instance.tokenURI(1);

I can pull up the metadata using an IPFS gateway: https://gateway.ipfs.io/ipfs/QmRNN5Pwd64h8MscEQScFkX9iLw4rVpdFTQRYUMmZGeXpU/1

However, this data is not displayed on neither the OpenSea testnet: https://testnets.opensea.io/assets/0x2d29fc6C1B20c35669fb55Fa3144cDD529302256/1/?force_update=true

Nor the Rarible testnet: https://rinkeby.rarible.com/token/0x2d29fc6c1b20c35669fb55fa3144cdd529302256:1

The OpenSea metadata validation is super unhelpful: https://rinkeby-api.opensea.io/assets/0x2d29fc6C1B20c35669fb55Fa3144cDD529302256/1/validate/

Does anybody have some idea what I can be doing wrong? My guess is that my metadata was formatted incorrectly. However, it seems like OpenSea at least is failing to open up the metadata at all.


Wrong url for the validator.


Content-Type: application/json
Vary: Accept

    "valid": false,
    "token_uri": "https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmRNN5Pwd64h8MscEQScFkX9iLw4rVpdFTQRYUMmZGeXpU/1",
    "errors": [
        "TokenUrlTimedOutException: "

As far as what's wrong with the contract, I don't know.
