These protesters declare 'God hates NFTs'

Protests hold placards

The shouting begins and the placards come out as a group protest in New York City's SoHo district. As one sign is raised, it reads: 'God Hates NFTs'. Oh yes, even the Almighty has taken against non-fungible tokens. Or has he/she/they? These protesters aren't really annoyed by NFTs. This is a savvy stunt to gain attention for streetwear brand The Hundreds, and its NFT collection.

This prank was made as NFT.NYC 2022 began in New York City on Monday. It's proved a huge success for The Hundreds and as marketing campaigns go, I kinda love it. For just a split second I was sold, after all the world of NFTs can be a weird and wild space. When placards emblazoned with slogans reading 'Make Fiat Great Again' and 'Repent Or Get Rugged' it's hard not to want this bizarre protest to be real.
