The Andy Milonakis NFT Show, EP. 14 – How Milonakis Made One Million Dollars

1 month ago 70

Tonight, on The Andy Milonakis NFT Show: As predicted, the Goat Soup NFTs sold out in a matter of hours. And the public sale did the same in a record breaking nine minutes. The official website reads “Goats are sold out and can be purchased on secondary! 3,744/3,744 minted.” Each mint was 0.08 ETH, so the project’s first drop made almost $1.4M minus expenses. Hate to say we told you so, but we did.

Let’s start from the beginning and make our way to Andy Milonakis’ thank you video. In it, the man promises all kinds of real-world utilities for Goat Soup, his first serious NFT collection.

Milonakis’ Day Before The Whitelist Mint

Let’s summarize Goat Soup’s story so far, for those of you who haven’t been paying attention to The Andy Milonakis NFT Show

The first thing our hero did was open a Discord channel to gather the community.  Almost 8500 people joined in just a few days.  The newly formed Goat Soup team had to close the group. They gave those already in the chance to get whitelisted.  More than 1000 people got whitelisted. Plus, a number of people who won giveaways in other projects’ Discords.

And that’s where we were when Andy tweeted this:

My NFT series WL mint is starting this coming Tuesday Nov 30th 4PM PST / 7PM EST public sale will be Dec 1st 4PM PST / 7PM EST. The discord will be unlocked after mint. The website is not up yet but the minting will take place on https://t.co/f8peNMi1Xf (1/2)

— Andy Milonakis (@andymilonakis) November 28, 2021

Bear these two things in mind, “The discord will be unlocked after mint. The website is not up yet but the minting will take place on http://goatsoup.com.” Also, let’s refresh what does “fully on-chain” means, and the rationale behind the NFT’s characteristics. “The reason why Goat Soup is pixel art is because the nfts actually exists on the block chain and there are size limits”

The project is fully on chain/ethereum, a lot of projects use terms that makes you think it's on chain, but really the image is stored on some random server. The reason why Goat Soup is pixel art is because the nfts actually exists on the block chain and there are size limits

The day before the mint ends in excitement.

Time to sleep. Goat Soup NFT whitelist mint in 14 hours. I'm mostly excited and just a little nervous. After the public sale on Dec 1st, gonna start some major planning and setting things in motion.

It took 24 hours, but 979 of the whitelist people got 1200 of the Goat Soup NFTs.

We only allowed 1 per person on the Goat Soup WL, tomorrow for the public mint we will allow 2, aiming for the coveted 50% owners to pieces. The 1 per person gave us a head start. https://t.co/f8peNM0qyF public mint tomorrow 12/1 4PM Pacific pic.twitter.com/RhIbGPMurG

Goat Soup’s Road Map And IRL Utility

Our hero transformed into a stick of butter to give us the road map and explain the real-life utility that the Goat Soup NFTs will have.

Summarizing: Milonakis will organize parties, events, participate in art shows, and create merchandise based on the Goat Soups. Also, he will airdrop other NFTs to holders. Milonakis promises constant action. He’ll put his life into the NFT series.

If you don’t like butter, in the following video the man himself gives you similar information with a high-energy attitude:
