Manchester United released an NFT collection that sold out faster than expected. But the style is very similar to that of other great NFT artists.
On December 28, artist NFT Lucrez It mentioned via Twitter that it is in talks with Arthur Breitman, the co-founder of Tezos, to get an explanation from Manchester United as to why the new NFT pool will use similar designs and patterns to his.
The Lucréce cluster is much older than the United cluster and is priced higher, coming in at approximately 21 ETH ($24,919) per NFT. In contrast, 7,777 NFTs each of the Red Devils sold for around $40, and were out of stock immediately upon release.
Lucrez hopes to seal a deal with the Red Devils. This will benefit both parties as the similarity between their artwork is so uncanny that some users in the community have even wondered if the artist worked on creating the Manchester United project.
“I’m not saying ManUtd was inspired by my work, but I’m not saying Manchester United wasn’t inspired by my work either.”
While the artist was careful not to directly accuse Manchester United of plagiarizing his work, he shared an image on Twitter comparing the two works so that readers can draw their own conclusions.
