between the topic of bitcoin superspreader events And Embarrassed NFT’s branded, those within the crypto community set a high standard for devising the worst ways to promote the currency of their choice. But this week, the creators of an Elon Musk-themed cryptocurrency called the “Elon Goat Token” (yes, that Actually what it is called) came up with a promotion that could have ruined those other ideas of the water. It’s a statue that shows Elon Musk’s expressionless face on the body of a goat, and it looks…just like you thought it would.
“At every crucial point in human history, a remarkable piece or masterpiece has captured the essence of that period. Think of the great pyramids of Giza. The statue of David. Picasso reads Guernica” 12-page white paper Explain the concept of the new currency.
“The world now stands on the brink of the largest transfer of wealth in its entire history,” the statement continued. “What better way to cherish the beginning of this glowing new era, than by doing so by celebrating the converts involved, alongside the most innovative man of the twenty-first century, Elon Musk?” Ha:
Regardless of your feelings about Elon Musk, goats, or the word “innovation,” you can’t deny that the statue is unsettling, to say the least. Maybe it’s goat horns. Perhaps the fact that he’s riding a rocket seems to electrocute him. Perhaps that’s because – as the brief describes – the Elon Goat team has plans to attach the 30-foot-tall statue to a Tesla and drive the thing to the automaker’s headquarters in Austin, Texas, “for Musk and the world at large.” You can watch the trailer below. And come to your own conclusions:
a motherboard interview He revealed with cryptocurrency developer Ashley Sansaloni that the idea for this horrific human-goat hybrid actually came up during a 3:30 a.m. advisory call, which, yes, might explain a few things. The guy on the other end of the line seems to have come up with the idea for the NFT series, which features a goat catch. Sansalon, to his credit, told the outlet he didn’t want to waste time pumping out thousands of NFTs that would be “meaningless.” [him], Personally. ”
Apparently, “huge goat” (his words) made more sense. After researching the logistics, Sansalon came to the conclusion that the easiest way to build this massive goat would be indoors and on a trailer—a tactic that would allow his team to avoid regulations and zoning laws they would otherwise need to comply with. This, in turn, sparked the idea of tying those gigantic goats to the back of a Tesla, taking it for a spin across the country, and dropping it on Elon Musk’s doorstep where he would tweet about it, most likely, since this Kind of specialty.
Sansalone noted in the interview that he had already paid a flat $20,000 to an outside designer to start work on the project, and that that designer, in turn, was chronicling his goat adventures. on instagram. Sansaloni said he expects the statue to be completed in “less than four months,” and it will cost about $500,000 after all is said and done. But if this disaster somehow leads to Elon Goat landing on the Twitter account of the same name – something that has been seen solo height Prices of other cryptocurrencies in the past – then maybe this one is worth it.
