The creative minds over at RTFKT Studios are back, partnering with Takashi Murakami for something special. The word comes down today that the public sale for RTFKT Studios and Takashi Murakami‘s collaborative Clone X NFT avatar project is now live. RTFKT specializes in creating distinct digital items referencing fashion, footwear, and gaming, revealing NFT concepts. Past drops include Ironman-inspired AF1’s and “METAPIGEON” sneakers in collaboration with Jeff Staples.
The new Clone X collection is RTFKT’s first avatar NFT project, and it’s set to become one of the most sought-after series on the market. The project features 20,000 avatars with a random combination of traits designed by Murakami. The assets received by buyers will be able to be used in future NFT-based games, AR filters, Zoom meetings, and metaverse platforms. RTFKT has also promised to release future Clone X wearables, IRL item drops, and member-only experiences.
Murakami released his first NFT project earlier this year, creating 108 digital flowers inspired by Nintendo. He recently released a statement regarding his project with RTFKT. Murakami stated: “I have been very interested in NFTs and their potential, and I happened to come across the RTFKT team’s work on Instagram. We started chatting and came to love each other’s work. I am very excited to work and create with such an innovative team.” The Auction for the Clone X collection will be started and paused periodically for newcomers to have a chance to purchase the NFTs. Prices start at 3 ETH, and the price will go down over time until the collection sells.
Head over to the dedicated Clone X website for more details and pick yours up today. While you’re at it, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the world of art and NFTs coming very soon.
