Back in March 2021, the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) of Twitter founder Jack Dorsey‘s first tweet was sold for a mouthwatering sum of $2.9 million. It was purchased by Sina Estavi. This was during the height of NFT’s first boom.
Estavi sold the NFT tweet recently for $48 Million on OpenSea. He tweeted: “I decided to sell this NFT ( the world’s first-ever tweet ) and donate 50% of the proceeds ( $25 million or more ) to the charity @GiveDirectly.”
To this, Jack Dorsey replied, “Why no give 99%”. This is the way. Estavi would not be disappointed. The auction received only seven total bids. The highest was 0.09 ETH or $278. Estavi has two days left to decide whether he accepts the bid.
Estavi’s decision to re-auction the NFT was a result of his recent release from prison. He was arrested in Iran in May 2021 for ‘disrupting the economic system’, and wants to rebuild his crypto reputation by starting with a new venture.
