Did the We’re All Going To Die NFT Collection just buy and burn a MAYC NFT? Shockingly, yes. The WAGDIE NFT project burned a Mutant Ape NFT and no, it wasn’t by mistake.
Why Did We’re All Going To Die Collection Burn a MAYC NFT?
Apparently, burning a MAYC NFT is part of WAGDIE NFTs’ marketing tactics. On the project’s official Twitter account, they posted an OpenSea transaction showing them buying a Mutant Ape and sending it to a burn address. In the caption, it said, “Let the ash of this creature become the start of her glory. The right of its power splayed out across the Ether. Long live her.”
However, what happened garnered negative reactions from many NFT collectors. This is because MAYC is one of the most-coveted NFT collections and WAGDIE bought the NFT or 21 ETH ($36,561 at the time of transaction) just to remove it from circulation.
One MAYC holden even said “They just burned a mutant ape to prove what? That they like burning money?” Maybe. Hopefully, we don’t see more of these as it seems such a waste of funds. There are other ways to build hype online than burning valuable NFTs.
What Do We Know About The Wagdie Collection?
