šŸ“œ My friends and I are buying one of the 11 surviving copies of the US Constitution, and you can help! Introducing @ConstitutionDAO, a project to "rescue" the Constitution from the hands of private collectors, and put it back into the hands of The People. WTF is going on? šŸ‘‡

In September, @Sothebys announced they were going to auction the only copy of the Constitution still in the hands of private collectors. This Reuters article surfaced in our feeds yesterday, and we started joking around with "aping into the constitution" https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sothebys-auction-rare-first-printing-us-constitution-2021-09-17/

After playing with the idea for most of the day, we ended up jumping on a Zoom call, and things got real. šŸ˜Æ We decided to form @ConstitutionDAO, a decentralized organization with the mission of putting this shared good back in the hands of the people. It's happening. šŸ”„

We've been working non-stop for the past 24h, chatting with pretty much everyone: investors, lawyers, museum administrators, degens, etc. We also created a Discord community to organize efforts and let anyone contribute, which has risen to 2k members in just a few hours. šŸ“ˆ

We're also working under the clock! The auction is in 6 days, and the estimated price is around $15M to $20M (probably much more!) If we're going to pull this off and prove to the world that crypto is about much more than collecting JPEGs, we're going to need your help. šŸ™Œ

There are two ways to help: - Contribute to the crowdfund: Check Discord (on @ConstitutionDAO's profile) for info. - Spread the word: Join the Discord and help us get this project in front of as many people as possible! Tweet about it, make memes, reach out to friends, etc.

You can read about all the details regarding why we're doing this, how we plan to pull it off & more on the FAQ linked on our website. šŸ‘‡šŸ‘‡šŸ‘‡ https://constitutiondao.com/

This is the most insane thing I've ever worked on, so crazy it might actually work, and you'll find thousands of people as excited as I am to meme this into reality. Do you want to help us make history, anon? WAGBI (we're all gonna buy it) šŸ‘‰ @ConstitutionDAO šŸ‘ˆ
