Two big items in crypto news throughout 2021 have been Elon Musk and Non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Elon Musk’s namedropping cryptocurrencies on Saturday Night Live sent crypto markets haywire, and there is even a meme currency named after his dog, Floki. Meanwhile, the third quarter of 2021 saw NFT sales rise beyond $10.7 billion, which is 8 times as much as the quarter immediately preceding it. Unsurprisingly, the two have now been merged in a new NFT marketplace called Dogs of Elon.
On October 20th, the official Twitter page (@dogsofelon) announced that the website was live, and they were ready to launch. The latest update is that they have partnered up with DEXToolsApp, and they’re listed on DappRadar. An additional layer of security, which is sadly exceptional amongst NFTs, is that there are extra step tokens, they have gotten a two smart contract audit with Certik.
Buying one of the unique pieces
On to the actual NFTs, they are inspired by DOGE and Shiba Inu coins, and the historic 10,000 pieces of unique art are largely dog-inspired pieces. There are also 30 special avatars from the man himself, Elon. There are limits, and each participating address can only claim a maximum of 20 of these. At the end of the pre-sale, the NFTs and their metadata will be released, and all participants have a chance of receiving something of value.
For enthusiasts and fans, there’s also an upcoming November 1st Airdrop event collaboration with CoinMarketCap on their page, worth a neat $50,000.
