RTFKT: The Parent Project

“It’s all about the people” so they say, even more so when it’s about the creators behind an NFT project as the industry becomes “noisier” by the day. But do not despair! There are ton of amazing talents involved in RTFKT and that shows again and again by delivering awesome products.

RTFKT (pronounced “artifact”) has already partnered with numerous famous artists and projects since they launched earlier this year. This included Jeff Staple, Fewocious and many more.
