AssangeDAO wins Julian Assange x Pak NFT for $53M
After placing the maximum bid
AssangeDAO, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) fighting to free WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has placed the winning bid for an NFT created by digital artist Pak dubbed, ‘Clock.’
The DAO raised a total of 17,422 ETH through the community funding hosting platform Juicebox to bid on the Clock NFT and won the auction after placing the maximum bid of 16,593 ETH ($53M).
The proceeds from the sale of the NFT will go entirely towards Assange’s defense fund. "100% will go to Wau Holland Foundation that supports Julian Assange's defence," Pak said on Twitter.
On Monday, Pak first announced his ‘Censored’ NFT collection in coloration with Assange. Unlike Pak’s ‘Merge’ drop, which sold for $91 million last year, the Clock is a single NFT that counts the number of days Assange has spent in prison.
In return for contributing to the cause, all donors can now claim AssangeDAO’s $JUSTICE governance token, giving them a voice in how the DAO’s resources are used.
