The highly anticipated integration of Nike and Fortnite on the Polygon platform, scheduled to kick off on August 8th, appears to be receiving a subdued response from the NFT and Web3 community. Despite the excitement surrounding the “.SWOOSH” Virtual Collection, Polygon is facing tepid engagement from Crypto Twitter (CT) and enthusiasts.

Sandeep Narwal’s Exciting Revelation
Sandeep Narwal, the co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Polygon, took to Twitter to unveil the impressive “.SWOOSH” Virtual Collection, a groundbreaking collaboration between Nike and the popular Fortnite game. With a massive following of 256.9K on Twitter, Narwal shared the news of this unique digital creation, combining the world of fashion and gaming.
A Muted Response from the Crypto Community
However, despite the excitement generated by the announcement, Polygon’s integration with Nike and Fortnite seems to be facing a lackluster response from the Crypto Twitter (CT) community. Enthusiasts and industry insiders aren’t showing the expected level of interest or support for the collaboration.
The Allure of the .SWOOSH Virtual Collection
The “.SWOOSH” Virtual Collection presents an array of distinctive digital creations, capturing the essence of Nike’s iconic brand and Fortnite’s immersive gaming experience. To encourage user participation, Polygon offers an Account Linking Achievement. Users can effortlessly earn this achievement by linking their Epic games and Nike Accounts on .SWOOSH before August 8th, 2023.
Eligibility and Seamless Distribution
The Account Linking Achievement is exclusively available to individuals aged 13 and above, who are legal residents of the United States, as specified in the official blog post. Polygon’s commitment to regulatory compliance ensures a secure and compliant user experience.
Additionally, the distribution of .SWOOSH Achievements within the Fortnite Game is set to be seamlessly integrated into players’ accounts. Polygon has designed the process to be automatic, requiring no action from the players’ end.
The Road Ahead for Polygon
As the integration’s launch date approaches, Polygon remains committed to fostering mainstream adoption and awareness of the benefits of blockchain technology. The collaboration with Nike and Fortnite holds the potential to introduce millions of users to the world of NFTs and Web3 through the captivating “.SWOOSH” Virtual Collection.
Embracing the Challenges
While the initial response from the Crypto community may not have been as fervent as expected, Polygon remains undeterred in its mission to drive innovation and revolutionize the digital space. The company is well aware that pioneering such collaborations involves overcoming challenges and winning the trust and interest of various communities.
