Twitter creator sells very first tweet for millions of dollars

Published

on

Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey is auctioning the very first tweet, posted on March 21, 2006. This post was posted by Dorsey himself, who announced that he was customizing his page.

The tweet “just setting up my twttr” is available on the Valuables platform, which hosts auctions for tweets that are “subscribed” by their authors. Tweets are sold as non-fungible tokens (NFT), which are digital tokens that can verify the ownership and authenticity of a tweet. Using a blockchain storage system designed for bitcoin transactions, NFTs are encrypted with the creator’s signature using the blockchain. With NFT, you can buy or sell ownership of digital content, including animations, GIFs, songs, and more.

Comparing buying a tweet to buying an autographed baseball card, Valuables says, “There is only one unique signed version of a tweet, and if the creator agrees to sell, you can own it forever.” While the one won in the auction will remain on Twitter, the winner of the auction will receive an autographed digital certificate that includes the metadata of the original tweet.

The highest bid for a Dorsey post so far is $ 2.5 million. It was made by Sina Estavi, CEO of Bridge Oracle.
