To mint the FREE Shinys at the Smart booths, subscribers should connect to Smart's mobile internet, scan the provided QR code, and complete the form on the YEY Platform powered by BlockchainSpace Asia. Upon successful registration, subscribers will receive their unique Shiny for that day.

It's important to note that each QR code is only valid for the corresponding day. A total of 8 distinct Shinys are available, and subscribers can collect them by visiting the designated venues during the promotional period.
