RTFKT's Controversial Nike Hoodie Mint Doesn't Scare Off Collectors
RTFKT launched its Nike AR Hoodie NFT collection today about an hour late after the team was dealing with technical concerns. Even after the delay, the mint did not go off without issues.
Multiple users complained that the queuing experience was not working, and even when they did reach the inventory page, the screen went blank, access was denied to holders, or the required code never reached email inboxes.
"Access denied for a holder since mint," one Twitter user wrote.
"Yeah, it's really not [live] though," wrote another frustrated holder. "Did you manage to f--- up yet another mint? [You] learned nothing from Clone X, huh?"
It was possible to mint the collection through the smart contract, though. And Twitter user Vazi even posted a tutorial for frustrated would-be minters.
RTFKT responded to the situation after the mint sold out.
"We're sorry we made you go through such an unacceptable experience on our site," the team wrote on Twitter. "We take all feedback seriously, and will take actions from this."
Despite the minting issues and concerns, the RTFKT x Nike AR Hoodie collection is trading above mint price at a 0.38 ETH floor price. It has completed nearly 300 ETH in total volume in the last hour.
Physical hoodie redemption starts tomorrow, Jul. 22 and ends on Jul. 25.
