Jack Dorsey Is Selling His First Tweet as NFT

Jack Dorsey First Tweet
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is auctioning off the first tweet ever as a NFT, or Non-Fungible Tokens, through a platform called Valuables, and currently the highest bid is $2.5 million from Bridge Oracle CEO Sina Estavi.

Published nearly 15 years ago, the tweet reads, “just setting up my twttr.” The buyer will receive a certificate, digitally signed and verified by Mr Dorsey, as well as the metadata of the original tweet.

The auction will end on March 21st, and he plans to donate the bitcoin to Give Directly, a fundraising project to give cash directly to families experiencing extreme poverty in Africa.

Who would have thought that a Tweet from 2006 could reach as much as 2.5M? Lately the crypto collectibles have exploded in popularity, Christie’s last month became the first major auction house to sell a standalone NFT artwork.

*UPDATE – The world’s first tweet was sold for $2,915,835.47 to @sinaEstavi.

*UPDATE 2 : Last week, Estavi listed the NFT for sale at $48 million USD and pledged 50% of its proceeds (which he thought would exceed $25 million) to charity.
