The question of whether a roadmap is part of the purchase of an NFT according to Polish law is uncertain and would depend on the specific terms and conditions of the NFT.

A roadmap is not a legal requirement for the purchase of an NFT under Polish law, but it is a common practice for NFT creators to provide a roadmap for the future development of their project. The roadmap is usually a document that outlines the creator's plans for the future development of their project, including upcoming features, partnerships, and other developments that could potentially affect the value of the NFT.

If the roadmap contains firm commitments to perform certain factual or legal acts in some situations it could be considered part of the concluded contract between the NFT issuer and the buyer.
