The artwork is a tribute to Ellsberg’s activist deeds.
American and now-naturalized Russian activist Edward Snowden is set to auction an NFT for charity. Snowden has collaborated with political activist Daniel Ellsberg for this release. The “Wouldn’t You Go to Prison to Help End This War?” NFT is a tribute to Ellsberg’s activist deeds. In 1971, he released the Pentagon Papers, a 47-volume document that contained information about the role of America in Indochina from World War II to May 1968.
The one-of-one token, minted on the Ethereum blockchain, will be auctioned off in a livestream interactive show dubbed PleasrHouse on January 12 at 3 PM ET. The show is hosted by PleasrDAO, the collective behind the new web3 auction platform.
Proceeds from sales will go to Snowden’s non-profit organization Freedom of the Press Foundation and Ellsberg’s Initiative for Peace and Democracy.
In addition to the auction itself, Edward Snowden and Daniel Ellsberg will answer users’ questions during the livestream. The crypto Twitter community has already prepared numerous questions for today’s show. If you’ve got any burning asks, you still have time to post them.
Edward Snowden is not new to NFTs, as he issued the one-of-one “Stay Free” token back in April 2021. The NFT was sold for 2,224 ETH, approximately $5.4 million at the time. The proceeds went to the Freedom of the Press Foundation, established by Snowden in 2012.
