Elon selling his musical NFT tweet seems to join the bandwagon around the NFT craze, where the tweet readily receives an offer of $100K within a few hours.
Elon once again didn’t miss contributing to any kind of hype in the digital space. The business magnate claimed on selling a musical non-fungible token with a techno track genre, whose lyrics happen to be: “It’s verified, it’s guaranteed.” The tweet, in the form of a video clip, bore a circling frame, with an animated gold trophy embellished with the words “vanity trophy,” “HODL”, “computers never sleep” along with a pair of diamond hands underneath the moon with Shiba Inu dogs most probably playing as a reference to Dogecoin. The proposed NFT happened to be surrounded by the things he loves. The things that indulged with technology, his favorite “Doge”, investments. hodling.

The highest bid of $100,000 was from Twitter user, mondoir.. Giving a witty comment on Elon’s eccentric trait, Mondoir said:
First of all, we all know @elonmusk will never sell or accepts an offer to sell his tweets. He wont play this game. My offer to buy his tweet was a strategic move as well as just to laugh. So, PPPlease, dont get everything seriously 😜 * No ETH was ever paid. Its just a bid. 😉 — Amir (@mondoir) March 15, 2021
Since the song is not available on any major marketplace, crypto users tokenized the tweet to test its apparent value. It is currently listed on the Valuables platform, allowing Twitter users to make an offer on digital versions of any tweet. But even though it happens to be an apparent song on non-fungible tokens, Musk did not include a link to the NFT, so it’s unclear if he plans to initiate the sale or not.
