NFTs for Trump-haters, carbon offsets, fractionalized CryptoPunks and more

A group of fellow students have found a way to hit former President Donald Trump where it hurts: They use their tweets against him to raise money for a charity they think he despises.

Strategic Meme Group Incorporated has set up the website Drumpfs.io to sell tweets from Trump, at least the ones included in the Trump Twitter Archive. However, there is no digital certificate of authenticity, and the legal status of Twitter properties outside the Twitter platform is questionable, if not non-existent. One hundred of Trump’s most infamous tweets are selling for 4.5 ETH each, while the former leader of the free world’s usual tirades have changed hands for 0.0232 Ether.

Approximately 97% of the money raised is donated to AmeriCare, Clean Air Task Force, ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, Doctors Without Borders and NAACP, with the remainder used to fund overhead. The barrels can be resold on secondary platforms.

Carbon offset for NFT

NFTs have become the unlikely poster child for environmental degradation, ahead of other candidates such as international flights, heavy industry and commuters. According to various estimates, OpenSea is responsible for 67.8 million kilograms of carbon emissions, while the latest delivery of NFT to The Weekend apparently emits more carbon than a plane making 86 round trips from New York to London.

Buyers can now easily add an NFT collection address to the Aerial platform and it will tell you how many carbon credits you need to buy from them to balance the books. You can pay in American dollars or, strangely enough, in Ethereum, a payment that presumably requires additional carbon credits.  The airline’s co-founder Andreas Homer said:

We want to shed real light on the environmental impacts of blockchain companies and give people the chance to mitigate them with carbon offsets.

CryptoPunks are divided intochunks

CryptoPunks are among the earliest and therefore most valuable NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain, with individual punks selling for over $7 million each. In other words: Most of us can’t afford to hang out in a digital billiard room. Unicly CryptoPunks (UPUNK) will offer 250 million fractional shares in a collection of 50 CryptoPunks. This is the biggest punk collection yet (but not the first attempt).

Currently, 80 investors have invested 3.6 million shares at 5 cents each. At a time of growing interest in crushing high-yield NFT collections, Securities and Exchange Commission Commissioner Hester Pierce has warned that such tokens may violate securities laws.

50 CryptoPunks have been split into UPUNK by Unicly.

This is the largest fractional collection of CryptoPunks!

Drop like a dog.

When he’s not busy indulging in food delivery services like Menulog in Australia (chicken wings from the farm), you can find Snoop Dogg in the mines of NMT. He launched the NFT collection on OpenSea 4/20 (a holy day for smokers) in collaboration with the artist behind the Nyan Kat meme. Nyan Dogg, which is pretty much the same thing but with a dog, sells for just over 14.2 ETH.

NFT, based in Meme, is a hot commodity right now: Too Tied Girl NFT recently sold for $411,000 and Bad Luck Brian sold for $36,000. LA Mag notes that NFTs are finally letting membrane manufacturers benefit from their work.
