NFT continues to engulf more people in its craze, the recent being the CEO of Blockchain, Sina Estavi.
Estavi paid an amount of US$ 2.9 Million through the second major cryptocurrency, Ethereum, for buying NFT containing the first-ever Twitter post.
As per the details, the bought tweet post belonged to Twitter’s CEO and co-founder, Jack Dorsey. The tweet was reported some fifteen years ago which was posted in the month of March. Dorsey decided to sell his post through public auction exactly by using Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). For the purposes of the sale, the seller sought assistance from Cent, a famous auction house of the US.
When Dorsey posted first message it was on 6th of March and the post contained a short message saying he was setting up his Twitter account.
The purchaser namely Sina Estavi, who is the CEO of a blockchain project called Bridge Oracle, has purchased the NFT. Estavi paid a huge sum of money i.e. US$ 2.9 Million for purchasing a Twitter post that contained only five words in total. All the amount was paid by Estavi on the basis of the second-largest digital coin in the world namely Ethereum. In addition, the words are not comprised of some knowledgeable advice but in fact a bunch of meaningless words.
Estavi was questioned why he wanted to purchase the NFT and for such a huge amount. He replied hesitantly that to him it wasn’t just any tweet. He stated that few decades later people will come to realize that the amount he had paid today was nothing at all. He compared the tweet post with the one only globally renowned painting of the Mona Lisa.
