Cartoon Porn and Rugs: NFTs Get Nasty

unknown 5 1

What are CryptoPunks packing down there? 

That’s what one new limited-run avatar NFT project, CryptoJunks, is sharing with the Internet. The CryptoJunks project uses the head and shoulders art of CryptoPunks to create matching genitalia. There’s tentacle penises, peeing pee-pees, regular ole schlongs; pink, coiffed lady parts, peach punani and sadist snatches, where the hand seen holding a whip. And they all come (not intended) with cute names — like “Not Financial Advice” below — that will have you searching through what equates to a cartoon porn site. 

The project, it should be stressed, is not affiliated with Larva Labs, the venture behind the legendary CryptoPunks. CryptoJunks was launched in early June by the group ambition.wtf, which made another NFT project called hexis.wtf and also a browser extension for viewing NFTs called Artsee. All the Junks have been minted, so you can only purchase them on the secondary market. 

According to the project’s OpenSea account, “Let’s be honest. We couldn’t afford a Punk, so we made some Junk instead, and cranked it to 11.” 

The limited-run NFT ecosystem is fully embracing its own insanity, and with rug.wtf it’s definitely not taking itself, or you, the buyer, very seriously. 

The project’s roadmap suggests that in the future Junks will have the ability to breed, like CryptoKitties. 

This isn’t the only tongue-in-cheek NFT project The Defiant has recently stumbled on. The limited-run NFT ecosystem is fully embracing its own insanity, and with rug.wtf it’s definitely not taking itself, or you, the buyer, very seriously. 

Although, it’s being completely open about it. 

Big, bold letters — YOU STUPID MOTHER FUCKER — hit you as you open the website, and the barrage of insults doesn’t stop as you scroll for more information. 

The project is a series of 10,000 unique images of rugs. Although, the images haven’t been created yet. As seen on the project’s OpenSea, anyone who minted a rug NFT currently has a fuzzy question mark GIF-cycling on their artwork. According to the website, “unless we decide to run with your money,” the rug NFTs will appear in minters wallets on August 1. 

Weirdly, these NFTs do have some utility — holders can access special channels on the Discord server. 

In the words of rug.wtf, “Here’s a pile of shit with your name on it, you weak willed sucker.”
