On Matursday, premiere satire conglomerate Gaucho Marks will release their latest issue in the form of a non-fungible token (NFT)–becoming the first magazine of its kind to do so.
The satire magazine is actually releasing three types of tokens as part of a series called, “Nah-fuck that,” according to Gaucho Marks spokesperson Kay Oss.
The first token is their most recent issue “The Work from Home Edition,” but it’s in unreadable Na’vi from the movie Avatar (and the billion yet-to-be-released sequels).
The second token is a portrait of Gaucho Marks alumnus and all-around dependable guy, Mike Rotch—painted by renowned abstract artist and 1960s hippie guru Oliver Clothesoff.
The third token is an exclusive, audiovisual art. This audiovisual piece is a free jazz rendition of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” performed by Gaucho Marks Truth Editor Brandon Barroso on glockenspiel and Editor-in-Chief Mimi Pinson on the recorder.
The smart contracts and intelligence within the tokens were developed by Brandiculous, a charity that wants to use blockchain technology to bring value back to declining premiere satire conglomerates and improve direct-to-fan relationships. The current bidding stands at 0 Ethereum (in USD: $0).
As a side note, NFT’s are bad for the environment and the art world is immoral.
