RTFKT announced the release of their new Nike Hoodie NFT. The hoodie got sold out within a very short time. However, many people were left angry without being able to mint. What specifically happened with the RTFKT Nike hoodie drop?
When was the Hoodie Released?
The hoodietook place on July 21st in the US at 3pm Pacific Time / 6pm Eastern Time on rtfkt.com . Europe and Japan followed on July 22 at 12am Central European Time and 7am Japan Time respectively.
Who can buy the NFT?
The RTFKT x Nike AR Hoodie is a Private Mint. This means that only certain people who meet the requirements can also purchase the hoodie. The Mint requires users to create an account on rtfkt.com and verify that they are either a Clone X NFT or an RTFKT x Nike Dunk Genesis CRYPTOKICKS NFT owners. Thus, the prerequisite for minting the Nike Hoodie is quite exclusive. Because the floor price for a Clone X NFT is currently 9.9 Eth, which corresponds to around $15,000. The Cryptokicks NFT, on the other hand, is definitely a bargain. The floor price here was 1.35 Eth, which corresponds to around $2,000. This means that an investment of at least $2,000 is required to even buy the RTFKT x Nike Hoodie.
Summary – These are the things you need to know
The European release time of the RTFKT x Nike Hoodie is today at midnight. To register for a mint, users needed to own either a Clone X NFT or a Cryptokicks NFT. You also needed an account on rtfkt.com and to link your Metamask wallet to it. If the platform recognizes that one of the two NFTs is in the wallet, you can mint the RTFKT x Nike AR Hoodie NFT.
RTFKT NFT Minting Fail – What Happened?
The minting process (not surprisingly) ended really fast. People were waiting for hours only to find out that the minting ended. Apparently, there were problems with the minting process where users could not save a spot in a fair queue and were kicked out despite waiting for hours. The company did warn about “first come first served”, but how to really understand who “first came” without a proper queue system? It seems as if the events of Yuga Labs with Otherside repeated again with RTFKT.
