Ellen Britt for CNT #NFT
How’s this for hatching up a plan? Thorne Melcher and Mandy Musselwhite, who raise ducks and geese as well as other animals on their Atlanta area homestead, created an NFT collection of 10,000 cartoon ducks in an effort to avoid foreclosure due to mortgage back-payments that were overdue.
Mandy created the ducks and Thomas, who is a coder, learned a new coding language so he could mint the ducks as NFTs on the ethereum blockchain. They had to borrow money from a trusted friend just to pay the fees for the NFT collection. They incubated their plan in early January for two weeks and then launched.
The Dastardly Ducks
The result? The collection, known as “Dastardly Ducks” sold completely out in under six hours for an astounding $120,000. The mortgage back-payments were paid with plenty of money left over and the real ducks are safe and sound.
The couple’s Twitter bio reads: “you saved a smol duck farm. Now, watch it grow!
