The infamous Joseph Maldonado, aka “Joe Exotic,” from the docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” has launched his own Ethereum-based token. According to the website tiger-king.org, the project will also feature non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the proceeds from NFT sales will go toward helping Joe Exotic’s legal defense team and tiger rescue funding.
‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic Launches an ERC20 Token
The costar of the docuseries “Tiger King” has announced the launch of a new crypto asset called “TKING,” according to the reality series star’s official Twitter account. Bitcoin.com News reported on the popular docuseries last year when it was discovered that Joe Exotic’s costar Carole Baskin accepted bitcoin donations for Big Cat Rescue. Now Exotic “is back,” according to the website tiger-king.org and whoever developed an ERC20 token for him has minted a trillion TKING tokens.
“The legend of Joe Exotic has launched on the Ethereum blockchain! The man the world learned to call Tiger King from the hit Netflix documentary is back, this time as a digital currency,” the website notes. “The developers are thrilled to present Joe’s official cryptocurrency to the global public, endorsed by the man himself.”
Out of the trillion tokens, developers claim to have burnt 35% of the token supply. The development team also details that TKING tokens are “deflationary” by design as there’s a “2% burn rate on every transaction.” The website states:
Joe will always be the Tiger King, but his colorful career has landed him with a hefty legal bill in a bid to fight a corrupt legal system. Now he also faces the expense of cancer treatment.
