Nifty News: Snoop’s Grow-to Earn — Is Dorsey’s tweet worthless or priceless?

The nonfungible token(NFT) that Jack Dorsey used to send the first tweet was sold for $1.

The iconic genesis tweet was sold for 1,630 Ether (ETH), valued at $2.9 million about a year ago on March 22, 2021. The highest current bid for this attempt to auction it is 10.3 ETH, worth about $31,739 at the time of writing, on NFT marketplace OpenSea.

The nonfungible token that Jack Dorsey used to make the first tweet on Twitter is not being offered for even 1% of last year’s auction price.

The genesis tweet made on Twitter by founder Jack Dorsey.

Its owner, Bridge Oracle founder Sina Estavi, hoped the tweet would generate at least $50 million dollars, half of which he said he would donate to charity after closing the auction in an April 7 tweet.

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

Estavi seems to have grossly underestimated the price of the tweet. When he initially listed the item on OpenSea, the highest bid was valued at about $277. Currently, the average bid is about $8,731. Low interest in this bit of social media history could be an indication of a decline in the crypto industry’s frothiness. Although NFT trading volumes have been rising over the past month, they are still far from all-time highs. Volumes on Bitcoin (BTC), ETH and decentralized exchanges (DEXs) have also been dropping off.

Using NFT art to support Ukrainian refugees

Four Ukrainian artists living in Sydney are using the popularity of digital art in NFT form to generate funds to aid over five million refugees from the embattled nation. The OpenYourHeart campaign hopes for at least $5million from the sale four limited-edition NFTs as well as ETH donations to Habitat for Humanity (a charity that builds houses). The auction will take place on May 5.

Olena Vigovska is one of the four artists and feels that the auction will allow her to help her relatives back in Ukraine.

“My friends and relatives are still back in Ukraine and any opportunity to help them is precious.”

Among the four works of art will be three paintings and one photograph that heavily incorporate the colors blue and yellow, like the Ukrainian national flag. The gallery is located in Australia and the auction will be held online.
