Elon Musk and NASA Help Send Azuki NFTs to Space
The event, produced in collaboration with NASA and Elon Musk’s company SpaceX, plans to send a crew into orbit with the NFTs on April 23, 2022.
On 4/23, @BobuBeanFarmer will be joining @NASA and @SpaceX on the Crew-4 mission to the International Space Station. Bobu will become the first NFT with private keys sent to space via @Ledger. 🛰️— Azuki (@AzukiOfficial) April 13, 2022
"One small step for farmers. One giant leap for beans".
The stunt pits Bobu as the first NFT to be sent to space via hardware wallet, but perhaps more importantly confirms Azuki's interest in making headlines and pushing boundaries in the NFT space.
The Azuki team has also announced that they have partnered with STELLAR, a student research organization from Grand Canyon University.
The student group will be researching “...energy output and electrical characteristics of a Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) run in a microgravity environment.”
A donation ranging between 2-8 ETH to help with STELLAR’s efforts will be determined by Bobu NFT holders in a vote slated to start on April 14, at 4:00 p.m. ET.
The poll will remain open until April 20. Any Bobu NFT holders can vote on the contribution here.
