A lot is going on in the world of NFTs. Innovators and stakeholders are busy making profitable and interesting projects. Here are some of those developments:
Warner Bros’ Matrix NFT
Astronomical demand for the Matrix NFT avatar by Warner Bros’ continues. The demand was so large on Nifty’s that it led to that processes payments to crash.
Some weeks ago, Warner Bros studio announced that it be releasing some more NFTs for sale. This is an element of their promotional campaign strategy for their latest movie. “Matrix Resurrection” is an addition to the Matrix series. Many ardent fans have waited for years for Warner Bros to make and release the Matrix Resurrection. Matrix Resurrection will be playing in theatres from the 22nd December 2021 in the U.S. and other parts of the world later. The studio plans to sell 100,000 individualistic Matrix-inspired avatars. They plan to sell each of these NFTs for US$ 50. On the 30th of November, over 300,000 Matrix fans stood waiting for the drop. Nifty’s had to continuously commence and cease the queue because it kept reaching maximum capacity. Their platform could not smoothly handle the demand.
Unfortunately, this was not the only infrastructural issue that they experienced. More disruptions happened after the queue was ceased multiple times. The purchase button simply did not work at times. Some users were moved up or down the queue, randomly. In addition, some transactions failed at the checkout mark. Fortunately, Nifty is working hard at addressing all of these issues. Nifty has apologized to fans for all the mishaps and even offered fans that queued on the 30th November 2021 the opportunity to redeem a “glitch in the Matrix” NFT for their troubles.
