Joe Exotic or Tiger King to millions just launched an ERC-20 Meme Coin and NFT Collection. Tiger King is a hit Netflix documentary about the story of Exotic or Joseph Maldonado in real life as a zookeeper. Exotic is currently serving a 22-year federal prison sentence. He was found guilty of murder-for-hire charges and wildlife violations. Proceeds from the token and NFT sale will be used to fund his legal battle, cancer treatment and tiger rescue initiatives.
Tiger King’s Crypto and NFT riding on Netflix Show’s popularity
34.3 million people viewed Tiger King within its first ten days of release. The hook of course is Joe Exotic or Tiger King himself. Needless to say, Tiger King is a character in every sense of the word. Thus, $TKing is a meme coin capitalizing on Exotic’s pop-culture persona.
The Coin has a total supply of one trillion. The official website, tiger-king.org, showed its three-phase development roadmap. The fully completed first phase covered the token sale, liquidity lock, and Uniswap listing. Phase two is underway (to list in Coingecko and CoinMarketCap). Lastly, the third phase which will start in June is for Tiger King NFTs and Marketplace.
The Feud with Baskin
The Tiger King narrative is not complete without his equally controversial archnemesis, Carole Baskin. Baskin is a big-cat rights activist. The two kept on bickering, exchanging threatening videos and even staging protests against each other. The culmination, of course, is Exotic’s conviction after hiring a hitman to murder Baskins.
It seems like the bitter rivalry is not yet over. Baskin also launched a cryptocurrency, $CAT Token, which will be used to raise funds for her advocacy. The website tiger-king.org took a jab at Baskins and stated, “We will never let Carole Win.”
Meme coins and NFTs are both pressing forward at an astonishing rate. For example, a new platform is set to launch so users can easily create, track and monetize memes. Meme.com will turn memes into NFTs and build the CoinMarketCap for meme content. Thus, Tiger King’s Token and NFT Collection will surely benefit from this market trend.
