Will Smith’s slap in the face of Chris Rock inspired an NFT collection

the slap that Will Smith he tipped Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars he toured the world and continues to give something to talk about. And how could it be otherwise, the episode not only fueled countless memes on social media, but also inspired a collection of NFTs.

Yes, one of the most embarrassing events in recent show business history was immortalized in the Blockchain; and, the truth, we cannot say that we are too surprised. Under the title Will Smith slams DAOthe collection of NFTs is now available on OpenSea, the most important portal for the distribution of non-fungible tokens.

This proposal was born as a parody after what happened Sunday night at the Oscars. Plus, each NFT is basically a meme of the showdown between Will Smith and Chris Rock, and there’s no denying that they haven’t been overly elaborate.

And while these tokens are unlikely to spark interest in style Bored Ape Yacht Club, maybe they generate enough movement that their creators can earn a few extra bucks without much effort. So far the collection has nearly 2,000 NFTs and prices range from 0.001 ETH (just over 3 euros) to 69 ETH (over 210,000 euros). And the most striking thing is that the most expensive does not depict the event of the Oscars 2022, but the slap that Will Smith gave to a Ukrainian journalist at the time.

After all, despite the growing popularity of NFTs, this seems to be nothing more than another case of opportunism in trying to extract as much money as possible from one of the hottest topics of the moment.
