Takashi Murakami just released an update on Murakami Flowers project and an update on his collaboration on Clone X with RTFKT.
We were aiming to release in February, but at this rate, it looks like that won’t be possible.
I thank you for your patience for a little while longer.
I had assumed that our own NFT release, which my team and I have been working on, could be executed smoothly, just like RTFKT’s. But barriers after barriers stand in the way. I see, there are these kinds of problems! we would say, faced with the inner workings of a project that one would never think of by just being a user. We have to gauge the right distance from regulations on crypto assets and virtual currencies. Then, there is the concept of art itself, as well as the decisions about the whitelist, structuring the rules, and scenarios with risk calculations. Once we are on the side of executing the project, there’s so much to deal with that all the creators who are releasing their NFTs started to look like geniuses to me.
Takashi also provided an update on discord
“I know you want Discord.”
“But listen, if I opened a channel, it’d be flooded with countless spam messages, a lot of kind-sounding scammers would reach out, and, above all, my mind won’t be able to survive the psychological stress. So for now, I can’t set up a Discord channel yet. Sorry about that. Won’t you wait for me a little while longer, be it a few months or a few years, until I become familiar with the world of NFT? Pretty please?
