DigiDaigaku NFT’s Superbowl Ad Gets Heavily Criticized, Here’s Why! 

Although the recent Super Bowl hadn’t featured any crypto advertisements this year like they had the previous year, the NFT community had been excitedly awaiting the one Web3 advertisement that would feature at the event — an advertisement for the minting of DigiDaigaku NFTs’ newest collection.

Despite the hype and excitement leading up to this ad, however, it ended up causing some massive divide in the community and received a ton of criticism after being deemed disappointing by many. 

DigiDaigaku Superbowl Ad

Previously, the parent company of DigiDaigaku NFT collection, Web3 gaming startup Limit Break, had mentioned that they had paid a massive $6.5 million in order to receive a spot for the ad to feature during the Super Bowl. This ad was meant to lead watchers to be able to mint one of the 10,000 NFTs from their new collection, the DigiDaigaku Dragon Eggs.

Many expressed disappointment, however, when it was revealed that when the QR code on the animated commercial was scanned, viewers were simply redirected to the Twitter account of the CEO & co-founder of Limit Break himself, Gabriel Leydon.

Leydon had then tweeted out that the way people could win a mint was to retweet and like his tweet as well as follow his account. Many criticized the team and the CEO for this, calling this “blatant engagement farming” on Leydon’s part.

Growing Collection

Despite the many criticisms that Gabriel Leydon and the Limit Break team received for their Super Bowl ad, however, both the DigiDaigaku collection as well as the new DigiDaigaku Dragons collection have been growing considerably within the past day.

According to data from CryptoSlam, in the past 24 hours, the DigiDaigaku NFTs have seen their trading volume surge by more than 180%.

Along with that, DigiDaigaku Dragon Eggs have already garnered more than 1,000 ETH, or $1.5 million, in total trading volume on OpenSea since their mint. The Eggs also managed to trade at a floor price of over 0.5 ETH (over $750) within the hours following the mint though it has since fallen to a floor of 0.34 ETH at the time of writing.
