The Tor Project NFT Sale

The Tor Project NFT Sale

The Tor Project is a non-profit founded in 2006 by computer scientists Roger Dingledine, Nick Mathewson, and five others to help access websites with “.onion” domains, or commonly known as the dark web. Their mission is “To advance human rights and freedoms by creating and deploying free and open source anonymity and privacy technologies, supporting their unrestricted availability and use, and furthering their scientific and popular understanding.” 

The piece was a collaboration between the TOR Project and ixshells to mark the 15th anniversary of Tor onion services. The NFT was a generative art piece based on Tor’s first .onion site, duskgytldkxiuqc6.onion.  The NFT also transfers the private key of the site to PleasrDOA.

Some of the proceeds will go towards Tor’s network security and help support grassroots work in privacy training.

This purchase is right up the alley of PleasrDOA’s past NFT bids. They are a group of NFT collectors that came to be when they purchased the pplpleasr’s collab piece with Uniswap “x*y=k.” They are also the purchasers of Snowden’s “Stay Free” NFT, where they bought it for 2,224 ETH. PleasrDOA seems to strive to collect NFT pieces that are meant to benefit the ideology of the internet.

Something interesting to note is the artist ixshells has now become the highest-selling woman in NFTs. We at the gazette want to congratulate her on this momentous achievement.
