Jenny Ta to Drop 10K ‘Vitalik The Goat’ NFT/IRL Toys Collection to Commemorate Ethereum Merge

7250 Jenny Ta to Drop 10K ‘Vitalik The Goat’ NFT:IRL Toys Collection to Commemorate Ethereum Merge

Every generation has its legends. And this legend drops on September 12. Vitalik the GOAT is a unique commemorative collectible art project in honor of Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum and the true genius of his generation. To give proper credit to this prestigious name, we have focused on separating our project from others. What makes Vitalik the GOAT truly unique?

REAL-WORLD UTILITY

There are 10,000 individual Vitalik the GOAT NFTs, which will only be minted on the Ethereum blockchain. No two NFTs are the same. But here’s the kicker – the NFT also comes with a special commemorative Vitalik bobblehead IRL that is designed to look exactly like the digital Vitalik the GOAT.

Out of that 10,000, a lottery will be held, and 100 will receive a fully functional new Ledger as part of their Vitalik bobblehead. 

The lottery selection will be held LIVE via Twitch Live Stream, where the team will select 100 random NFTs purchased by September 30, 2022.

Live Twitch, where the winners will be randomly drawn in front of a global audience, live on Twitch on Friday, September 30, 2022.

WE ARE LAUNCHING RIGHT HERE

We are launching our NFTs right here on our website before listing them on OpenSea. This is because we wanted the full creative license to serve our community better, and this was the best course of action. 

Instead of joining a whitelist and to mint and then during the mint, hoping that you randomly get a rare or valuable NFT, you can choose your favorite. You get what you see, no surprises!

All team members are doxed, industry professionals who are dedicated to bringing value to Web 3.0.

18 Reasons Why Vitalik is the GOAT

  1. Vitaly DmitriyevichVitalikButerin was born in Kolomna, Russia, on January 31, 1994.
  2. His father, Dima Buterin, is a computer scientist. 
  3. He was a child prodigy. His parents moved to Canada when he was young. In third grade, Vitalik was selected as a gifted child in school. There he became drawn to mathematics, economics, and programming.
  4. Vitalik has said that his inspiration for decentralization and Ethereum came from a video game. Between 2007–2010 Vitalik spent a lot of his life playing the game World of Warcraft . The maker of the game removed a key feature from one of the main characters, which as a user, he had no sovereignty over. Vitalik says, “I cried myself to sleep that night.” Shortly after he quit the game of Warcraft forever, the disappointment led him to hate centralized apps that unfortunately run our lives today.
  5. Vitalik found out about bitcoin from his father in 2011, at the age of 17. 
  6. Vitalik co-founded Bitcoin Magazine in 2011, which has been referred to as the first serious publication related to cryptocurrencies.
  7. In 2012, Vitalik reached out to Jed McCaleb for a job at Ripple who accepted. However, their proposed employment fell apart after Ripple was unable to support a U.S. visa for Buterin.
  8. Vitalik wrote the Ethereum whitepaper at the age of 19 in 2013.
  9. In 2014, Vitalik received the $100,000 Thiel Fellowship to drop out of the University of Waterloo to pursue his dream of building Ethereum. Link https://www.ctvnews.ca/why-a-20-year-old-toronto-drop-out-accepted-100-000-to-stay-out-of-school-1.1895631

  11. Vitalik is a professional writer. His book, Proof of Stake, which compiles some of his writings from the past 10 years, is being released on September 27.
  12. Vitalik believes he knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is. “In my opinion, Hal Finney was Satoshi Nakamoto because Bitcoin reflected his working style. It is also a known fact that the first Bitcoin transaction occurred between Satoshi Nakamoto and Hal Finney.”
  13. Vitalik made one of the largest charitable donations in history. He was gifted a massive amount of Shiba Inu by the project without his prior knowledge. When he found out (and Shiba Inu exploded) he donated half of it to COVID relief in India ($1.14 billion, or 50,693,552,078,053 Shiba Inu), and then burned the rest.
