Driven by the high popularity of the show, the Game of Thrones official NFT collection, named “Build Your Realm,” has been completely sold out seven hours after launching on the NFT marketplace of Nifty.

According to Bitcoin News, those of bought the NFTs complained about their poor drawing and criticized the “salad fingers” featured in the NFTs of Game of Thrones characters in addition to issues related to minting, describing the collection as a major let-down.

Some Twitter users complained about the long time they waited for getting their NFTs. Others alleged that by receiving the NFTs, the floor price had dropped. While some users commented on the outlandish way that the GoT characters were drawn by the artist, saying their fingers are too long. Also, the co-founder of Web3 game project Treeverse described the collection as the worst thing he has ever seen.

The first NFTs of Build Your Realm, announced in November, were released on January 10 and were all sold out on the Nifty marketplace. GoT NFTs are a result of cooperation between Nifty and Daz 3D, the company that designed and developed the digital collectibles.

Around 3,450 Hero Boxes and 1,500 Hero Boxes were sold after the finishing of the pre-sale. Each Hero Box, worth $150 (~0.11 ETH), includes a GoT Hero Avatar NFT, three Story Cards, and nine Resource Cards. They are seeing secondary market action on OpenSea. The GoT NFT collection has seen $506,673 in 24-hour sales volume among 2,894 transactions and 991 buyers.

Commenting on the project, CEO and Co-founder of Nifty’s Jeff 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.”
