Elon Musk’s Fans In Canada Build Bizarre 30-foot ‘GOAT’ Statue Worth $600K

Austin, Texas: Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is the subject of a 30-foot-long monument built by his diehard supporters. The $600,000 sculpture is 5 feet 9 inches tall and depicts what appears to be a billionaire’s head mounted atop the body of a goat riding a rocket.

The monument was created by Canadian metal artists Kevin and Michelle Stone and is made of aluminium. Elon GOAT Token ($EGT) conceptualised and ordered the work. They plan to give Musk the statue on November 26 at his Tesla office in Austin, Texas, according to reports.

In a statement, $EGT said, “Most people thought we would never do it, but after one year of building the time has come to bring it home to Elon. Really we just want to meet the guy and give it to him. After all, he is the most innovative human alive, hence the GOAT – Greatest Of All Time.”

“We built Elon Musk a $600,000 monument on the back of a semi-trailer in honour of his many accomplishments and commitment to Cryptocurrency,” the statement adds.

According to the company’s website, $EGT has decided to present Elon with this gift in Tesla’s Giga plant in Austin after touring many US states since its completion.

While this is going on, some users are already abusing the pay-for-verification mechanism that Elon Musk formally introduced after becoming the new CEO of Twitter.

The new Twitter Blue subscription has a blue tick that looks somewhat like the ones given to celebrities. The new tick appears precisely the same as a user scrolls through the feed.

The distinction becomes apparent when users click on the badge and learn whether it was given to a famous person or purchased by a Twitter Blue subscriber.
