RTFKT x CAA: Nike's Design Studio Signs With Talent Agency
Julian Son

RTFKT signed with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), per The Hollywood Reporter and a tweet from @RTFKT today.

The Deets

  • RTFKT is joining forces with CAA to expand the company's IP into film and TV.
  • Nike acquired the digital design studio in 2021, and the virtual fashion platform specializes in digital sneakers and other accessories.
  • RTFKT will also collaborate with CAA to create a series of webinars and other educational programming for other crypto- and 3D-focused artists.

❗ Why It Matters

Nike keeps working to expand its digital presence and create partnerships with other Web2 behemoths.

Last week, Nike Virtual Studios announced a .SWOOSH x EA Sports partnership, and now Nike's digital design studio RTFKT is signing with powerhouse talent agency CAA to explore film and TV projects based on RTFKT's intellectual property. And last month, Rumble Kong League (RKL) inked a deal with CAA Sports, so CAA's continued involvement serves to legitimize Web3 projects as well.

🎀 Founder Feedback

We've always built our brand to inspire the next generation of creators, accelerating a future where talent and creatives can merge cultures and technology in new ways. Being able to work with such a world-class team and explore new mediums for our IPs and creativity, such as TV, film and define what the future of interactive storytelling is a dream come true.Benoit Pagotto, founder of RTFKT

Cryptokicks iRL Unhubbing Taking Place May 15-29
Julian Son

RTFKT announced that Cryptokicks iRL Hubbed NFT holders will have the opportunity to select a US shipping address between May 15th and 29th, with additional details on how the Unhubbing process will work to follow next week.

❗ Why It Matters

Unhubbing was originally scheduled to start on May 1, but instead will now take place in the back half of this month. Cryptokicks iRL Hubbed holders have a two-week window between May 15th and May 29th to unhub their sneakers and choose the address that the physical gets delivered to. This was done to give international holders time to find a place that would be able to reroute the shoes to them.

πŸ”™ Back It Up

Within the RTFKT Cryptokicks iRL collection, there are two different states of Cryptokicks iRL: "Forged" and "Hubbed" versions.

  • If Forged, the physical has already been redeemed, so don't purchase if you would like the corresponding physical component, as the Forged version is just a digital collectible.
  • Hubbed versions are basically confirmed preorders where the sneaker size and color were already assigned but the shipping address was not selected.

MNLTH X currently holds a floor of .76 in early trading post-airdrop.

The floor price of MNLTH 1 is down 57% to 0.97 ETH over the last seven days, with MNLTH 2 down a whopping 92% to 0.108 over the same time period.

RTFKT's EGG Claim Is Now Live for Holders
Jason Bales

The official EGG claim is now open on RTFKT's website, according to a recent Discord announcement from the team. Claim here.

The rules are simple: one CLONE equals one EGG.

"EGGS are just the beginning of our next ... IP, Project Animus," the team wrote on Discord. "Protect your EGG and keep it safe, we have a lot more coming while you'll wait for it to hatch."

The official OpenSea collection is available here.

To claim an EGG:

  1. Connect your main MetaMask wallet to the website. Do not switch wallets mid-flow.
  2. Click claim.

To troubleshoot potential issues, follow this advice provided by the RTFKT team:

  • If you have Clones in different wallets, connect with one wallet, mint the amount of eggs you want, and then after check-out, disconnect your wallet and restart the flow with another wallet address. Again, the key thing here is you cannot switch wallet addresses mid-flow.

  • You also cannot have multiple wallet addresses connected to the site at the same time. 
    [This is a] MetaMask issue that will be resolved in Q1 '23.

  • Old collections not showing up in RTFKT Inventory is normal.

  • Can't claim EGGs for all Clones? Go to "MY NFT" tab and try again.

  • Can't see the claim page on Please refresh your cache / Try different browser / Try incognito mode.

  • You can see if the Clone has already claimed an egg on Egg Checker (

The Side Quest Continues Soon for RTFKT
Jason Bales

RTFKT announced that its Side Quest will continue in about 30 minutes, at 10:30 a.m. ET on Oct. 19. 

"Everyone is welcome to participate," the tweet reads. "The AI WORM calls upon you."

The RTFKT encourages participants to follow AI-WORM (@CLONEXCORP) on Twitter and turn on notifications.

Project founders have said the Side Quests are essential to the Clone X lore, and there will be a new mint tied to them.

Earlier this month, RTFKT teased a collaboration with luxury luggage company RIMOWA announcing a "one-of-a-kind collab drop" that will be "open to every adventurer."

RTFKT Drops Cryptic Message - New Quest Starting?
Tyler Warner

The RTFKT team has released another cryptic message, the latest in a lengthy stint of cryptic tweets, ever since the team launched "CLONE X STORY MODE" back on October 4th.

The tweet shows simply a computer screen emoji, with a screen sharing a message titled an "EMERGENCY BROADCAST" from "THE WANDERSMITH" that reads: 

Incoming U. viral charge detected. I don't have the means to protect the factory by myself. 

Please help.

Use Artisan decrypting protocol to find me.

This is not the first message from "The Wandersmith", as there was a prior message sent yesterday that read "Incoming U. threats detected. They found us. Please advise."

It seems "The Wandersmith" is in deep trouble.

While it's unclear exactly what the message means at this time, there is speculation in the community that RTFKT is launching a side quest this week, centered around "The Wandersmith". Quests were a central part of the RTFKT MNLTH project, though this quest seems more related to the Clone X ecosystem.

The best place to follow along with those solving the quests would be in the RTFKT discord, and Lucky Trader will share breaking updates as they happen.

The Clone X floor is currently 9.4 ETH, up 1 percent on the day.

Tyler Warner's NFT Market Summary

If you touched grass this weekend, you didn't miss anything in the NFT market. Trading volume was very low, with just 6,413 ETH traded on OpenSea on Sunday, the lowest ETH level since mid-September and the lowest day in USD terms of 2022. 

With that lack of volume, not many project floors made much headway and most chopped on the weekend.

The biggest winner of the weekend was likely CloneX, sitting at 9.4 ETH this morning and holding its gains since "Project Animus" was teased on Friday (with its pending airdrop).

In Solana news, DeGods and y00ts founder Frank DeGods made headlines with his announcement to drop royalties to 0 percent, a controversial decision that was the main topic on NFT Twitter yesterday. The market did not love the news, with y00ts down ~10 percent to 117 SOL and DeGods down ~5 percent to 324 SOL.

The top mint to watch today will be "QWERTY" by Tara Donovan, which is an Art Blocks x Pace Gallery collaboration. This is just the second collab project in this new partnership, and the first project "Petro National" holds a 2.3 ETH floor (and was above 4 ETH for a long time). With recent Art Blocks success and some solid tailwinds, there will be plenty of eyes on this mint today.

RTFKT Teases 'Clone X Story Mode'
Staff Writer

RTFKT released a video teasing a "Clone X Story Mode," which contained little information on the next steps for the project or what holders can do to take part in story mode.

The video opened with a loading bar with the following written underneath, almost illegibly:

"Clone DNA symbiosis in process

establishing contact with Clone X Research Facility and The Progenitor

Avatar interlink activated

Lone expansion mapping of the Omniverse inbound"

The video then cut to a map with equally small type highlighting four spots with the following information:

- Orbnar

34, 45 U54 34543

Location of the Clone X Research Facility The Progenitor is on the verge of unveiling its latest creation. Threat levels are high.

- Unknown

23 34 T-43 23432

Searching area for Artisan signal. Potential resource and artifacts detected. Scouting team has yet to be deployed

- Draco_42

5th magnitude K-type giant star within the Draco constellation

- Another spot on the map that appears to say "Omni Portals Detected."

The video ends with the word: "ENGAGED" with the words "Incubation, The Wandersmith, and The Exodus" underneath.

Prices on all RTFKT NFTs are stable since the 5 p.m. ET announcement Tuesday. There were also less than four messages in the RTFKT Discord in the 30 minutes after the announcement.
