Twitter Founder's First Tweet Finally Sold At Over RM 11 Million!

Do you remember the first tweet of founder Jack Dorsey that was auctioned off in a non-fungible token (NFT) version in early March?




“Just setting up my twttr” uploaded on March 21, 2006 by Jack Dorsey was finally bought by Malaysian businessman Sina Estavi for £ 2.1 million (RM11,969,181.88)!


The purchase was made in Ether (ETH) cryptocurrency and will be channeled to a non-profit organization (NGO), Give Directly to help families in Africa living in poverty, just as Dorsey intended to sell his tweet.



Estavi, chief executive of technology firm Bridge Oracle equated the value of digital art with that of the masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.


“This is not just a tweet! I think a few years later, people will realize the true value of this tweet, just like the Mona Lisa painting. ” @sinaEstavi today.


As a buyer, Estavi will receive a certificate signed and digitally verified by Dorsey, including the original metadata of the tweet. The data contains information such as the length of time the tweet was uploaded and the content of the text.


What is NFT? NFT is simply a unique token that is proof that a person owns a photo, video or any form of work online. NFT is non -interchangeable and cannot be copied as well as plagiarized, making it very limited.


Previously, Mike Winkelmann’s work or known as Beeple, ‘Everydays: The First 5000 Days’ which was auctioned in the NFT version, has sold for $ 69 million!
