After the toy maker’s mysterious tweet was deleted, it caught the attention of NFT collectors. Cointelegraph reported this on the 25th (local time).
The LEGO Group, a toy maker best known for its popular interlocking plastic blocks, hinted that it could fall into the NFT (Non-Replaceable Token), which is causing a recent craze in the cryptocurrency space.
On the 24th (local time), a message referring to the NFT along with a short video was posted on the official LEGO Twitter account. The tweet, written “0’s and 1’s, but still bricks,” along with the NFT hashtag may suggest that famous toy makers are once again considering entering the cryptocurrency space.
This 14-second video shows a 3D Lego brick spinning in space, popping glitches around the block, although not directly connected to the NFT. YouTuber Ashnflash, who posts Lego-themed content, speculated that tweets could be a teaser for’digital Lego currency’.
Since then, the tweet has been deleted, and many Lego enthusiasts commented that initial reactions to the company’s announcement seemed to be less likely to enter the NFT space. Some cited the environmental issue, arguing that the company’s entry into the NFT is “not good for the planet,” given the toy maker’s mission to be “balanced by renewable energy.”
Amid the boom of the NFT, the technology is being criticized for its environmental impact due to the necessary computational power. However, as the industry develops alternatives to NFT mining that use only a fraction of the power needed, such as ETH2, this concern is likely to have a smaller weight.
While official Lego makers may not be releasing NFTs right away, cryptocurrency users can find works of similar plastic blocks on online marketplaces. For example, OpenSea’s digital marketplace now features Heisenberg’s Toy Blocks from Breaking Bad.
Cointelegraph has requested comments from the LEGO Group, but has not yet received a response.
