SALEM ILESE + PUSSY RIOT'S NADYA TOLOKONNIKOVA TEAM UP FOR “CRYPTO ₿OY” TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE CENTER FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

"Crypto ₿oy" has gone viral across TikTok + Twitter with millions of views since Salem Ilese first posted the original on TikTok last week with an open verse challenge, even featuring stitched videos by Julysad alex and good problem. Now she's partnering with Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova to give both versions the NFT drop the song was destined for on Sound XYZ.

Pussy Riot has created original artwork for the drop, which will hit Sound XYZ this Tuesday 5/24 at 5pm EST with a total supply of 1973 (the year Roe v Wade was ratified), making it the biggest drop in Sound XYZ history. Mint price will be .1 ETH with 100% of proceeds going to the Center for Reproductive Rights. Following the drop of the original, all holders will receive a free airdrop of the remix version featuring July, Sad Alex and Good Problem. All proceeds for both NFTs will go to the Center for Reproductive Rights.

The drop follows on the heels of Pussy Riot's UnicornDAO launch and fundraise – which raised $4.5 million to fight gender inequality in the NFT space and art world at large – and Nadya's historic UkraineDAO fundraiser, which raised over $7 million in 5 days for conflict relief in Ukraine last February.

Salem writes:
“"Crypto ₿oy" is a wake-up call for all the chart-watchers, candle-counters, and JPEG-flippers that find a way to bring crypto into any conversation, no matter what it’s about. We all know them — checking OpenSea like it’s instagram, obsessing over prices, holding this, shorting that and being unable to focus on anything except Discord. 

As exciting as crypto is, and as likely as it is to revolutionize finance in the coming years, I want to shift our attention to a very urgent issue, which is the possibility of SCOTUS overturning Roe v Wade. This attack on reproductive rights is something we should be talking about as loudly as a crypto boy talks about NFT’s. It’s imperative that we band together and fight to protect our fundamental rights.

100% of the proceeds of the sale of this NFT will be donated to The Center for Reproductive Rights (https://reproductiverights.org), a legal nonprofit that is able to accept donations in cryptocurrency. Let’s say NO to SCOTUS taking away our rights.”


Nadya adds: 
“Salem hit me up asking if I wanted to create an artwork for Crypto Boy; I'm obsessed with the song, so it was an immediate YES PLEASE. I co-founded UnicornDAO which seeks to subvert crypto bro culture and fund womxn, non-binary and LGBTQ+ digital artists, so Crypto Boy couldn't be more perfect to me.”
