Elon Musk’s “superfans” have funded a new sculpture that shows the Twitter owner’s head on the body of a Shiba Inu of the Doge breed mounted on a rocket.
As Consequence reports, the cryptocurrency company $EGT – which stands for Elon Goat Token – raised $600,000 (£501,796) to create the monument “in honor of the many achievements and commitment of the organization. [Musk] with cryptocurrency.”
A post on their website says: “Elon GOAT Token has truly stepped out of the box and done something no other crypto project has dared to do.”
The statue was designed by Danny Wang and built by Canadian metal sculptors Kevin Stone and Michelle Stone over a period of nine months, Interesting Engineering reports. Musk’s head alone measures two meters.
Elon Goat Token said the statue will be delivered to Musk at the Tesla Gigafactory near Austin, Texas this Saturday (November 26). “We invite you to attend and join us in asking Elon to claim this historic gift,” the company wrote.
“We believe that Elon’s possible acceptance of this biblical gift could advance $EGT and accelerate its various initiatives.”
The message added: “The future of $EGT is bright with our ambitious plans to launch EGT PRO trade processing solutions in early 2023. We also believe that with proper execution, the subsequent run on multiple centralized exchanges will bring you to the top!”
