Elon Musk produced a techno track about NFTs he’s selling as an NFT
Elon Musk is getting in on the NFT gold rush by selling a new electronic music track he’s apparently produced as an NFT. Sure, you’ve heard that proper — it’s a track about non-fungible tokens, which Musk seems to have minted (or plans to mint) on the blockchain. Musk didn’t embrace a hyperlink to the NFT, so it’s not clear if it’s already stay or if Musk plans to provoke the sale at a later date. It’s additionally not clear on which platform Musk intends to promote the NFT.
We additionally don’t know if the track has a identify, however we now have some clues. The looping video hooked up to the track Musk posted to Twitter on Monday shows the phrases “Self-importance Trophy” orbiting round a golden orb affixed to the highest of a literal trophy studying “HODL,” quick for the part “maintain on for pricey life.”
The HODL acronym, although it’s believed to have probably originated as a drunken misspelling of the phrase “maintain,” is each on-line slang and a type of rallying cry for the bitcoin neighborhood, as a result of it ostensibly encourages crypto lovers to not promote their tokens. It’s value noting right here that Musk is a large proponent of bitcoin. Tesla invested $1.5 billion within the cryptocurrency final month and plans to just accept it as type of fee for its electrical autos sooner or later.
At numerous factors within the quick video, the phrases alongside the trophy shift from “computer systems” to “by no means promote” whereas a feminine vocalist sings lyrics over prime like “NFT to your vainness” and “computer systems by no means sleep.” Did I point out that the trophy additionally has little gold canines, or “doges” if you’ll, rotating round it, too?
As for the track itself, properly… there’s not a lot to say. It’s loosely a techno track if you wish to dig into the style (with some electro home vibes thrown in), and that’s applicable contemplating Musk named himself the “technoking” of Tesla in a actual submitting with the US Securities and Trade Fee this morning.
It’s not superb, although by the requirements of Musk’s earlier work within the digital music scene — the certifiable not-quite-a-banger “Don’t Doubt ur Vibe” — I’d say it’s an enchancment.
