While Americans await the official constituency outcome, a blockchain-backed non-fungible token (NFT) called “Crossroad” will change into one of two animations with 45th US President Donald Trump. The election-based “Crossroad” NFT animation recently sold for a whopping $ 66,666 to a user named “Pablo”.
Non-fungible tokens were very popular in 2020, and a large number of blockchain-backed digital art works were sold to collectors. Just recently, blockchain artwork was auctioned off at the popular Christie’s New York public auction house. The NFT art called “Block 21” sold for $ 131,250 to a collector. Ten days ago, an artist-designed NFT called “Beeple” sold for $ 66,666 and this particular piece of digital art is truly unique.
The artwork is called “Crossroad” and features depictions of Joe Biden and President Donald Trump not wearing any suits. The two look like they could face him in a fist fight and both appear to be floating in space. Now the NFT is unique because depending on the official election result, the artwork will switch to something different.
For example, if the constituency or the Supreme Court confirms that Biden is the winner, the image will show Trump lying on the ground naked and covered in graffiti. Should Trump take all odds against him and win on December 14, 2020, the NFT will transform into a muscular Trump wearing a crown and running into the fires of hell.
Now many readers may be wondering why the NFT will change later, when major media outlets like the Associated Press and other outlets have called Biden the expected winner. However, the media does not officially call the winner and has never done so in the past.
For example, during the 2000 US election, the mainstream media screwed up horribly by predicting that Al Gore had won the race. “We don’t just have the egg on our face,” said NBC’s Tom Brokaw at the time. “We have an omelette,” he added after almost all the news reports got it wrong.
On December 14, during the meeting of the Electoral College, a decision could be made in which Trump still wins the presidency of the United States. On December 12, 2000, the Supreme Court ruled that George W. Bush won the race in 2000 and Al Gore did not.
In this particular presidential run, Trump is accusing the other side of election fraud and has not admitted Biden’s apparent victory. Trump’s campaign on Tuesday filed a lawsuit in a Pennsylvania federal court to prevent officials from certifying the race results.
“Beware of massive abuses in ballot counting,” Donald Trump tweeted on November 10. “Just like the early vaccine, remember I told you so,” added Trump. In addition, Attorney General William Barr has launched an investigation into “substantive allegations” that indicate voter fraud.
So the owner of Beeple’s “Crossroad” NFT may see a completely different animation in mid-December. At the time of publication, the blockchain artwork was again auctioned by its current owner nicknamed “Pablo”.
