PleasrDAO 'Revolutionizing' Web3 Auctions
PleasrDAO is launching PleasrHouse, a new live-streamed interactive show with virtual live auctions, according to a tweet from the project.
Why It Matters: According to the PleasrDAO website, the group's core focus is "buying and funding culturally significant pieces and creating something fundamentally additive to the soul of the piece before sharing it back with the community." The launch of the interactive live auctions, starting with an Edward Snowden NFT deemed "The Revolutionaries," provides the web3 community a unique experience with which it can interact and engage with "culturally significant" historical documents.
What's Next: PleasrDAO's PleasrHouse is going live on Thursday, January 12 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
The first sale will feature a piece created in collaboration with political activist Daniel Ellsberg, whistleblower Edward Snowden, and the Freedom of the Press Association, titled "Wouldn't You Go To Prison To End This War?" The NFT is a video of the words Daniel Ellsberg said in 1971 after surrendering for leaking the "Pentagon Papers."
Action Items: Users who want to participate or watch the first PleasrHouse can be notified when the stream goes live by clicking "get notified" on the PleasrHouse stream page.
Helpful Background: PleasrDAO first rose to prominence with its purchase of the Doge NFT for $4 million, which was subsequently auctioned as DOG tokens after the project fractionalized the NFT. The group also notably purchased Wu-Tang Clan's unreleased album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for $4 million from the US government in July 2021.
