Breakthrough Romanian DJ/producer /songwriter Alex Parker made history in 2019 as the first DJ to perform on top of a wind turbine, playing atop a 100-meter high turbine in Europe’s largest land-based wind park in order to raise awareness about renewable energy.
Now, Parker is once again breaking the mold through his partnership with top 50 cryptocurrency Elrond Network. Parker teamed up with Los Angeles-based singer HERA to write “I Want The Money (The Crypto Anthem),” which will be released as the first NFT to debut on Elrond Network’s new wallet MAIAR next month after its release across digital platforms last Friday, May 28.
The bass-house slammer is an ironic reference to consumerism, inspired by Reddit’s Wall Street Bets movement, crypto and stock trading, and even Elon Musk’s Dogecoin phenomena. The music video portrays “Wolf of Wall Street” characters who dream of getting rich overnight.

“You can make all the money in the world if you set your mind to it, but if you don’t have a higher purpose, it’s pointless,” Parker explains. “Just focus on making the world a better place!”
The first teaser, shared on Twitter by Elrond’s CEO Beniamin Mincu, has already gained more than 110K views.
