PleasrDAO has launched a decentralized autonomous organization FreeRossDAO to distribute NFTs of Ross Ulbricht's artwork and oversee the movement for his freedom.

FreeRossDAO to Promote NFTs of Ross Ulbricht's Artwork

PleasrDAO, a group of top-tier DeFi and NFT leaders (including Su Zhu, Rober Leshner, and Stani Kulechov), has announced a groundbreaking effort.

Its team has established FreeRossDAO, a community dedicated to the promotion of Ross Ulbricht's non-fungible tokens, as well as sponsoring his clemency campaign and lobbying for jail reform in the United States:

FreeRossDAO Manifesto:

    • We will Free Ross.
    • We will advance prison reform.
    • We will share Ross's work with the world and give everyone a unique opportunity to own a piece of it.

    PleasrDAO Will Donate Another 240 ETH

    PleasrDAO has set aside 240 ETH for FreeRossDAO and will give another 240 ETH when the total amount raised exceeds 2,400 ETH.

    With the auction, all Ross Ulbricht's artwork will be fractionalized and distributed proportionally to each participant's contributions.

    The money of FreeRossDAO will be held in a 3/7 multi-sig with multi-signers, including well-known developers and NFT aficionados. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, a Russian political activist and former political prisoner of conscience, holds one of the keys.

    Ross Ulbricht's first NFT drop, "Genesis Collection," was posted on the super rare platform yesterday; the top price approaches $1.2 million as of press time.

    The prisoner was informed of the DAO launch by one of Mr. Ulbricht's friends:

    "Thank you all for your support. I talked to Ross tonight, and it's a huge morale booster for him".

    Ross Ulbricht was arrested in 2013 and convicted to a double life sentence for narcotics trafficking, computer hacking, money laundering, and other crimes.
