Made by the popular cartoon Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, the NFT project was relatively successful, with the collection now boasting a floor price of 13.69 ETH after minting first began less than 24 hours ago for whitelisted users.
Criticism From The Community
Despite its initial success however, the Art Gobblers NFTs have since received quite a lot of criticism from the NFT community. All this criticism mostly stems from the collection’s whitelisted users, who for the most part, are all ‘NFT influencers’ with thousands of followers.
It was revealed that many NFT influencers including Farokh, Zeneca, Andrew Wang and many others were some of the few notable names who were able to secure a whitelist spot to get early access to mint NFTs from the collection. Because of this, many have accused the collection of essentially just being an ‘influencer pump & dump.’

I am not accusing anyone of impropriety
But many people (including me) think the NFT game is rigged

Many in the community have even accused some influencers of having possibly been somehow collaborating with the collection to advertise it to their audiences and raise the projects’ price.
Don’t be fooled.
All of the NFT influencers tweeting about Art Gobblers will sell one immediately for a 5x profit.
