McDonald’s job applications sold as NFTs
Memes are what makes Internet culture the vivid place that it can be, and memes in the crypto space is often how investors find and invest in crypto to begin with.
Memes in the crypto space, in particular, are often used as a commentary on the volatility of the market and the humour of them is often a comfort to traders who, at times, can have a lot of value wiped from their portfolios.
With the most recent crypto crash, the jokey memes are particularly prevalent, suggesting that crypto traders, with minimal job skills having focused on their investments, will need to apply for a job at McDonald’s in order to have enough money to live during this crypto market crash.
Even the President of El Salvador, who was the driving force behind the nation’s adoption of Bitcoin as a national currency, played into the meme game, changing his Twitter profile picture to a photo of himself edited to appear wearing a McDonald’s uniform.
Naturally, all of this has provided a new NFT series opportunity for one particularly entrepreneurial soul. That’s right – someone has taken a meme that is broadly critical of crypto and its investors, and turned it into an NFT collection. The collection consists of McDonald’s employment applications, and is listed on NFT trading platform, OpenSea.
Called the “McDonald’s Job Application”, the collection is made up of 1,111 copies of the same McDonald’s employment application form. The creator, who is only known by the Twitter alias @MCJobAppNFT, tweeted that the first 1,000 NFTs would be free, and the remaining 111 would list at a price of 0.01 $ETH, or about USD$25.
It has been a success. Even though the collection listed at 10am yesterday, the collection is now completely sold-out and has a floor price of 0.029 $ETH (USD$71) and a trading volume of 21 $ETH, which equates to over USD$50,000.
It seems that not even a good meme can keep the crypto investors down for long.
