The Andy Milonakis NFT, EP. 13 – Goat soup

Tonight on Andy Milonakis NFT: It’s Goat Soup Time. Milonakis announced the title of their first serious NFT collection and released the first sample, pictured above. The Goat Soup team chose pixel art and a 24×24 format because the project is 100% on chain. This means that their coins must be light because they will be living in the Ethereum blockchain. We’ll come back to Goat Soup soon enough, but first …

Did you notice the parallelism between Andy Milonakis’ very first NFT and his Bored Ape?

Look, they’re both crying and everything.

Was it fate or did Milonakis organize this? We wouldn’t know, but he bought the Bored Ape in the previous episode for 30 ETH. Today, the floor price of BAYC is almost 50 ETH. This is what we in the industry call timing.

Fair compensation for Goat Soup pixel artist

Andy Milonakis is here to make the world a better place. The artist who drew his pixel goats charged him way too little, and he asked the community, “You think if I give her a bonus 50 times, what she quoted me in there. origin is correct? Later, we will learn that the woman only asked for $ 500.

But wait, Milonakis wants to help but, let’s not exaggerate. He won’t give him a percentage of sales until version two of Goat Soup. “I think if we sell I should give him around 50K and maybe for version 2 I’ll help him with the crypto and give a percentage?”

Yet he has a reason for that. And that’s a good thing, Milonakis plans to spend the rest of his life building utilities for those goat soup NFTs. The artist, on the other hand, only spent a few days drawing them. Is Andy right or is he exploiting? In the end, he decides to give her the $ 50,000. “I tweeted this because I wanted to be transparent. I think the asking price 100X is fair.

In the responses, the community seems to think that what Milonakis did was more than fair. Remember, artist Goat Soup only asked for $ 500. The question remains, should he have offered him a percentage?

Intermission: Art inspired by Andy Milonakis

Speaking of pixel art, Milonakis received another gift from an artist in the NFT community. This one is a tribute to Andy’s obsession with sushi.

Will they hit it like NFT? Will Milonakis buy it?

Behind the scenes of the Goat Soup collection

There are details about the birth of the Goat Soup collection that will be of interest to future artists and entrepreneurs of NFT. For example, why didn’t Milonakis release Goat Soup tokens?

The the reasons are that Milonakis wanted to consult a lawyer first and wanted to create a community with people interested in art and real utility, not with crypto bros looking for annuities.

In the following tweet, he explains why he decided to make Goat Soup a 100% channel, a fact that dictated the direction of the project. “Most of the NFTs at sea are not on-chain and the images are hosted on a server somewhere. My project will exist on the etherium blockchain, and that’s why its pixel art ”

And, finally, here Milonakis announces Goat Soup as the name of the collection and shows a sample.

Intermission: the little ones

Another piece from Andy’s collection, here he recounts how he helped The Toddlerpillars by suggesting a trait through their Discord server.

“Disclosure: They put me in touch with 2 nfts as a thank you. Good for you, Andy.

Milonakis fights the masses, Pt. 1000

Another chapter, another case of Milonakis feeding the trolls. He likes that. This time around, however, the criticism is on his goat soup collection.

This is a poorly documented opinion, given that the Goat Soup Discord server has over 8,000 members and every post elicits this kind of reaction:

And here, a degen calls Andy a crook. Milonakis replies, “It shows a lack of character that you randomly accuse people of shit without doing any research. Sorry, but with that attitude, you won’t be able to.

The essentials of goat soup

At the suggestion of the public, the Goat Soup project has a Twitter account:

Andy and the team also purchased the .com domain. No site yet, however.

Well, Milonakis is already thinking about the future. And on how to bring value to NFTs. “When I release my first hip hop single on opensea, anyone who has a Goat Soup nft (my upcoming series) will get a free mint.”

The Goat Soup NFTs will be released in a week. There will be a private sale for those members of the Discord server who have been lucky enough to be whitelisted, and right after that there will be a public sale for anyone interested. There is a good chance the project will sell out in a few hours. We’ll let you know what happened in the next episode of… The Andy Milonakis NFT Show.
