The crowdfunding initiative aimed at featuring the mascot of Solana memecoin Dogwifhat (WIF) on the Las Vegas Sphere has garnered significant attention. In March, organizers successfully raised nearly $700,000 to display the WIF mascot on the Vegas Sphere for an entire week. Despite the prolonged wait, the campaign’s leaders remain optimistic about its success.

Mihir, one of the five organizers listed on the official “sphere wif hat” website, shared updates on the campaign’s progress with the news sources. He expressed that he was “90% confident” the advertising deal would proceed. After learning about the campaign, Mihir revealed that representatives from the Vegas Sphere had developed new “crypto-specific” terms. These terms emerged from internal meetings focused on crafting crypto-related policies.

“We are [still] working with them to fit their criteria and requirements,” Mihir stated, emphasizing ongoing efforts to meet the Sphere’s standards. However, he refrained from providing further details about the discussions to avoid influencing the ongoing talks or causing unnecessary speculation on WIF’s price. Despite the overall positive outlook, Mihir acknowledged a slight possibility of the deal falling through due to potential disagreements over requirements between the WIF community and partnering companies. However, he assured that this “had not been the case” so far.

A spokesperson for the Sphere declined to comment on the negotiations.

Community Concerns

Since March, some contributors to the crowdfunding initiative have voiced concerns on social media platform X regarding the lack of communication from organizers. They have also questioned the handling of donated funds if the discussions were to fail. Mihir addressed these concerns by assuring that all funds would be repaid to donors if the negotiations were unsuccessful. He reiterated this commitment in a public message on the official Dogwifhat Telegram group on June 18.

“The Sphere is still being worked on. These things take time and we’re volunteering to work for the meme,” Mihir wrote. “If it was cancelled, we would let you know immediately, and all funds will be returned.”

News sources report that Mihir also sought to dispel rumours about potential copyright issues with the WIF mascot, a dog named Achi. He clarified that the image’s copyright status might not be an issue, as the team is collaborating with Achi’s owners on other initiatives that support the meme. On March 18, pseudonymous crypto trader Gigantic Rebirth, also known as GCR, purchased a one-of-one NFT of the original image of Achi for $4.3 million. Mihir highlighted that the campaign team remains in contact with Achi’s owners, who even loaned them a remake of the original pink knitted hat from the image.

The organizers of the crowdfunding campaign include notable crypto trader Ansem and four other pseudonymous members of the WIF community, whose X handles are publicly available on the official campaign website. Despite facing a significant price drop, WIF allegedly remains the 54th largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. It has fallen more than 62% from its all-time high of $4.83 on March 31. At the time of publication, WIF is trading at $1.85, with a market capitalization of $1.85 billion, marking an increase of over 1,000,000% since its launch in late November last year. This reflected market dynamics comparable to those affecting Bitcoin and Ethereum (BTC ETH).

Conclusion

The crowdfunding initiative to feature Dogwifhat on the Vegas Sphere is being seen as a testament to the crypto community’s enthusiasm and commitment. Despite the lengthy wait and ongoing negotiations, the campaign’s organizers appear to remain confident in their ability to secure the deal. By addressing community concerns and working diligently to meet the Vegas Sphere’s requirements, the team aims to achieve a successful outcome. As the campaign progresses, The BIT Journal suggests that the stakeholders will continue to monitor developments closely, anticipating the potential impact on WIF and the broader cryptocurrency market.
