Pentagon Papers NFT from Edward Snowden will be auctioned off during a live PleasrDAO event.

2 min read


The Pentagon Papers is the name given to a top-secret Department of Defense study of U.S. government decision-making in relation to the Vietnam War from 1945 to 1967. The documents were leaked to the press in 1971 by military analyst Daniel Ellsberg and caused a political firestorm when they were published by The New York Times and other newspapers.

Edward Snowden is a former National Security Agency contractor who in 2013 leaked classified information about U.S. government surveillance activities to the press. He has since been living in Russia to avoid prosecution in the US.

NFTs are gaining popularity in the digital art world and many others sectors, but it would be an extraordinary idea to make an NFT out of the Pentagon Papers, and even more surprising if it would be sold at a specific event, like a PleasrDAO event. It’s important to note that it’s illegal to disclose classified information.

It’s also worth noting that ownership of actual physical documents of the Pentagon Papers has no legal bearing as the document has been widely published, widely reproduced and widely distributed.

The first episode of PleasrHouse, which airs on Thursday, January 12, will focus on the Ethereum NFT and include an interview with Ellsberg and Snowden, the sale of original artwork, and documentary footage created by PleasrDAO.

The segment (with these whistleblowers) “was a wonderful fit for the debut episode” according to Eberle, who was working on a Web3 auction house.

In order to purchase an NFT, renowned digital artist Emily “pplpleasr” Yang founded PleasrDAO in March 2021. The next month, PleasrDAO won an auction for a piece of Snowden’s NFT painting with a price of $5.4 million worth of ETH. At the time, PleasrDAO said that Snowden had altered the playing field for the principle of transparency and that it had made a bid on the NFT to promote it.

PleasrDAO paid $4 million in October 2021 for the distinctive Wu-Tang Clan album “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” which was released in 2015. Following the conviction of famed pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli for securities fraud, the album was confiscated by the US authorities.

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Please DAO members banded together to create Ukraine DAO. They increased cryptocurrencies by millions of dollars to transfer to the Ukrainian government and NGOs operating in the region.

According to PleasrDAO, PleasrHouse is a brand-new experiment designed to change how consumers typically perceive live art auctions. The first program focuses on the activities of activists and leakers. The DAO also claims that the next broadcasts would address a variety of online experiences.
