Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is selling the first-ever published tweet as an NFT, a kind of digital collector’s item.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey shared a tweet on Friday with a link to a digital platform called “Valuables” which allows for the buying and selling of tweets autographed by their creators.
The ítem up for bid is Dorsey’s first ever tweet from 2006, which says “just setting up my twttr”.
So far, the highest bid of $2.5 million has come from Sina Estavi, CEO of Bridge Oracle, according to Valuable’s website.
Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, have picked up steam in recent months as a popular technology to sell digital art and other items such as drawings or music. An NFT is a unique digital token which effectively verifies authenticity and ownership.
