Jack Dorsey is offering to sell the world’s first tweet as an NFT. So far, the highest bid is $2.5 million. Are you ready to bid on your first non-fungible token? Welcome to the world of crypto collectibles, where you can purchase a piece of unique, digital content that is guaranteed to be authentic and, theoretically, can’t be duplicated.
To create an NFT, ownership of the content is stored on a blockchain using tech similar to the tech used for cryptocurrencies. Anyone can do it, and just about everyone is doing it: recording artists, fine artists, performance artists, video artists… and the prices being paid border on insane.
Recently, the CryptoPunk called “ape in a fedora” sold for more than $1.5 million. Some Hashmasks on Ethereum have sold for between $300,000-$500,000.
Are NFTs a parlor trick or a paradigm shift? I want to know what you think. Let me know below.
