• Niftys.com launched its first “Game of Thrones” non-fungible token (NFT) assets on Jan. 10, 2023, which sold out quickly.
• Fans have been critical of the NFTs, claiming they are “poorly drawn” and feature “salad fingers.”
• Despite this criticism, the CEO of Nifty’s, Jeff Marsilio, is still excited to introduce more fans into the digital collectibles and Web3 industry.
Game of Thrones fans have been eagerly awaiting their favorite fantasy series to make its debut in the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and on Jan. 10, 2023, their dreams came true. Niftys.com released the “Game of Thrones: Build Your Realm Hero Box” NFT collection, which sold out in just seven hours.
The Hero Boxes contained story card non-fungible tokens (NFTs), resource card collectibles, and a single “Game of Thrones” (GoT) Hero Avatar NFT. However, despite the enthusiasm surrounding the release of the NFTs, fans have been critical of the artwork associated with the tokens. Some have called the NFTs “poorly drawn” and have taken issue with the “salad fingers” featured in the NFTs of Game of Thrones characters.
Despite the criticism, the CEO and co-founder of Nifty’s, Jeff Marsilio, is still excited to introduce more fans into the digital collectibles and Web3 industry. In a statement about the project, Marsilio said: “Our teams have diligently worked together to create an interactive collecting experience for Game of Thrones fans to continue their journey and live within the beloved series. We are thrilled to introduce more fanatics into the digital collectibles and Web3 industry.”
The Hero Boxes and Hero Avatars are now being sold on the secondary market on OpenSea for Ethereum (ETH), and the NFTs have received thousands of bids, indicating the enthusiasm and excitement of fans over the release of the GoT NFTs.
Overall, the NFTs have been a hit with fans, despite the criticism of the artwork. The “Game of Thrones” NFTs offer a new way for fans to engage with the beloved series, and the ability to trade and collect the tokens adds an extra layer of excitement and fun. The success of the “Game of Thrones” NFTs could pave the way for more NFTs from other popular franchises, and could help to drive more interest in the digital collectibles and Web3 space.
