The businessman shared a tweet auctioned as an NFT in his account. The art designer known as Beeple wants to purchase the collectible for $ 69 million.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk just did it again. Now by posting a tweet in which he sells a song about NFT that he offers in NFT format. In this way, the CEO is taking advantage of the boom that non-fungible tokens are currently going through.
The announcement appeared through his Twitter account. Musk shares with his followers just over two minutes of a clip where a statuette makes presence and at the top says NFT and has a phrase that says: “Vanity Trophy,” surrounding a golden globe that rotates on a detail-filled ornament. Among them is a dog, which is an interpretation of Dogecoin. The ornaments rest on the HODL inscription: “hold on for dear life.”
Although it lacks a name, the song is a techno track that repeats the following lyrics: “NFT for your vanity, computers never sleep, it’s verified…”
Elon Musk’s tweet appears as NFT on the Valuables platform, built on Ethereum and the Matic Network. The platform allows users to tokenize and place individual tweets for sale. According to the price record, the list of offers for Musk’s NFT is headed by @sinaEstavi, for USD 1,121,000, equivalent to 625.6 ether (ETH).
The Twitter account user @beeple, an artwork designer, asked Musk to purchase his NFT: “I’ll give you $ 69 million for it.” To which the employer responds: “420M Doge.”
Musk later posts in another tweet where he says he loves music. It makes his heart sing.
