RTFKT Delays Forge Deadline
RTFKT delayed the forging deadline for its custom Air Force 1 physicals amidst high gas prices on the Ethereum blockchain.
🧐 Wait, What?
RTFKT's forging deadline was supposed to close today, May 8, but due to high fees associated with redeeming the physical sneakers the team has pushed the deadline back a few days.
- Deadline now Wednesday, May 10
- Users can burn "pre-forge" RTFKT NFTs for physical redemption
- Forging takes place on rtfkt.com
- Sneakers expected to ship Q4
📊 By the Numbers
Want to get your hands on a pair of RTFKT Air Force 1s? The cheapest pair can be had for 0.255 ETH.
❗️Why It Matters
The delay will allow any caught up in memecoin mania to catch their breath and forge their own RTFKT sneakers before Wednesday. One pair was in the spotlight earlier last week when LeBron James was spotted wearing a pair before a game against the Golden State Warriors.
🎤 Founder Feedback
hopefully gas goes down a bit by the end of forging. FYI we need a fixed ending date to then produce the made to order AF1 with lots of 💙 and attentionBenit0
