DAO claims it raised $10m selling NFTs & plans to buy golf course

A DAO for golf enthusiasts claims it has raised more than $10 million inside 48 hours selling non-fungible tokens and plans to buy a golf course. 

As reported by CNBC, a man by the name of Mike Dudas - an investor who is well-known in the crypto community - told his friends about the idea. 

And then they went to work. 

Their mission was born and they planned to, "democratize the country club membership experience," according to Dudas' pal, Jim Daily, 39.

The team dropped the collection of 9,090 NFTs on 1 January and in 48 hours they say they earned about $10.4 million in sales. 

It has not been independently verified yet, but CNBC report that the amount matches. 

Funds from the sales will not go towards buying a physical golf course yet, CNBC reports. 

The group sold the NFT's at two price tiers at either $674 or $2,699. 

It has been reported that the NFT holders will be able to buy membership once it's available. 

Daily told the publication that what they are doing is a "grand experiment".
