It's no news that digital currencies are in full swing and it's not surprising that many are keen to join the trend by creating their own "crypto". This time the novelty is the introduction of a cryptocurrency that is inspired by the "Lord of the Rings" saga and its author JRR Tolkien and which they have christened with the word game JRR Token.

Under the motto “The only token that rules them all”, the new digital currency is based on the Binance Smartchain. On their website, the creators of JRR Token claim that the cryptocurrency with its community is "accessible and completely transparent", with "generous" benefits for those who invest and for charitable giving.

The starting price is quite attractive: 1,070 per unit, of which they promise a supply of 19 trillion tokens. In addition, their introductory offer is very tempting as they are giving away 300 million JRR to the first users to sign up for their application.

The JRR token is already supported by actor Billy Boyd, who played the hobbit Peregrin & # 39; Pippin & # 39; in the "Lord of the Rings" films. Took played. Frodo's ex-adventure partners Sam and Merry posted a video on Twitter in which he did not explicitly invite people to buy the cryptocurrency, but predicted that its value would soar “to the moon and back”.

"JRR Token was created with the goal of having a stable and sustainable cryptocurrency that can be accepted by all the adventurous spirits in the world," said & # 39; Pippin & # 39 ;.

The incident did not go unnoticed by fans of "The Lord of the Rings", who immediately sparked a heated debate on social networks.

“This is absolutely embarrassing. It is the opposite of all the themes in his (Tolkien's) work. Cryptocurrencies are fanatic arrogance in a big way. Saruman would do that, ”said an indignant tweeter.

To which the @TheTokenOfPower account replied, “Saruman was trying to unite Middle-earth under a centralized government in which the community wanted decentralization. The cryptocurrency is literally a decentralized network ”.

“Tolkien's anti-materialist vision of glorifying the wonders of living things and the ordinary – 'stone, wood and iron; Trees and grass; Houses and fires; “Bread and Wine”, as he would write in “About Fairy Tales”, his 1947 essay – they fit the values ​​of the counterculture, ”wrote another user.

The creators responded to the above tweet, arguing that "(Tolkien) also believed in decentralization and loathed centralized power. Cryptocurrencies are a decentralized platform that gives power to people."

The new cryptocurrency JRR Token may be a highly controversial idea for fans of the Lord of the Rings saga and JRR Tolkien, but there is no doubt that in marketing terms it served its purpose: to go viral and create conversation.

As for investing in this digital currency, it can be a good or bad idea to buy Dogecoin in its early days when it just seemed like a joke inspired by the Doge puppy meme and no one suspected it was Elon Musk's darling that would make it rise like foam.
