Twitter boss Jack Dorsey’s first tweet sells for $US2.9 million as an NFT

The NFT was sold via auction on a platform called Valuables, which is owned by the US-based company Cent.

It was bought using the cryptocurrency Ether, for 1630.5825601 ETH, which was worth $US2,915,835.47 at the time of sale, Cameron Hejazi, the CEO and co-founder of Cent confirmed.

Cent confirmed the buyer is Sina Estavi. Estavi’s Twitter profile, @sinaEstavi, says he is based in Malaysia and is CEO of the blockchain company Bridge Oracle. Estavi told Reuters he was “thankful” when asked for comment about the purchase.

On March 6, Dorsey, who is a bitcoin enthusiast, tweeted a link to the website where the NFT was listed for sale. He then said in another tweet on March 9 that he would convert the proceeds from the auction into bitcoin and donate them to people impacted by COVID-19 in Africa.
