A very Happy Birthday to The Lord of the Rings! The first part of LOTR, The Fellowship of the Ring, was published on 29th July 1954. Tolkien's masterpiece was an inspiration to many of us. To celebrate this event and cheer you up we decided to remember a couple of LOTR references in the Crypto World.
Mithril is a kind of social media based on a blockchain. The main idea of this network is that anyone can create content and get profit from participating in social media. MITH is a utility token of this ecosystem. The founder of Mithril, Jeffrey Huang, told that he was a great fan of fantasy. That is the reason why his crypto project has the same name as a fictional shiny, light yet hard metal from books of J. R. R. Tolkien.
Elrond is a crypto project with the main goal to provide anyone with easy access to the digital economy. The coin used on the platform is called Elrond eGold (EGLD). It seems that the creators of Elrond also were inspired by The Lord of the Rings, the project has the same name as a book character does. Tolkien's Elrond bears the elven Ring of Air, rules Rivendelland, and titles Frodo with his companions the Fellowship of the Ring.
Sometimes people turn to the book to make ingenious references. For example, in February Elon Musk posted a tweet that caused a lot of discussions. Elon showed his support to DOGE and compared Bitcoin to the evil ring that should be destroyed in the fires of Mordor.
We hope that this article will bring to mind your favorite moments and characters from the iconic novel, and make you smile, my precious!
