What’s new? Popular artist Shl0ms has published a video of his art performance in the American desert. In it, he blows up a Lamborghini Huracan car in protest against the get-rich-quick ideals adopted in the crypto community.

What was the artist’s idea? Lamborghini or Lamba is one of the main crypto memes. Buying this car symbolizes quick money that is only possible in cryptocurrencies. Shl0ms himself stated that “I hate Lambos” and believes that “technology is incredibly promising but so many terrible things are done with it.”

After having the explosion, the artist’s team collected 999 car pieces and digitized them into NFT tokens. Each of the tokens is a video of a rotating Lamborghini wreckage. On February 25, Shl0ms plans to hold an auction and sell most of the NFTs. The artist will use part of the proceeds to create a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for the most ethical members of the crypto community.
