The first tweet ever to be made on Twitter has sold for a staggering $2.9 million.

Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey sold his first-ever tweet yesterday for that amount as a non-fungible token, or NFT.

Sina Estavi, CEO of blockchain company Bridge Oracle based in Malaysia bought the tweet.

The tweet was made on March 21, 2006, and it said: “just setting up my Twitter,” and the bidding for the tweet started December 2015 and ended on March 21.

Dorsey’s tweet was auctioned on Valuables, a platform by Cent, a social media network built on blockchain. Tesla’s Elon Musk has also listed a tweet on the same platform but has yet to sell it.

Non-Fungible Tokens, NFTs, a unique digital asset secured on a blockchain have been the latest trend lately. Each NFT has its own signature, which can be verified in the public ledger and cannot be duplicated.

In a tweet, Jack Dorsey said he will convert the proceeds to Bitcoin and send to “Give Directly Africa Fund” a non-profit organization.

Jack Dorsey’s tweet was bought using Ether for 1630.5825601 ETH, which was worth around $2,915,835 at the time it sold.

In case you missed it: Dorsey earlier announced his intention to auctioning his first-ever tweet on a website that sells tweets as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
