Earlier, Jack Dorsey marked the end date of online trading. They will end on March 21.
Twitter founder Jack Dorsey plans to donate to charity the proceeds from the sale of his first publication on this social network. He published the corresponding statement on Tuesday on his official page.
Last Friday, Dorsey announced that he had put his first tweet, dated March 12, 2006, up for sale as a virtual asset – a non-fungible token (NFT) – at the Valuables online auction. “Just setting up my Twitter,” reads this post by the founder of the social network.
On Tuesday, Dorsey set an end date for online trading. They will end on March 21. “I will immediately transfer the proceeds to bitcoins and send them to [the charity] Givedirect for the Africa Response program [a program to help the population of the African continent in the face of a pandemic],” the Twitter founder said.
The main fight for the right to buy Dorsey’s first tweet unfolded between a Chinese entrepreneur, the Tron cryptocurrency founder, Justin Sun, and the CEO of Bridge Oracle, Hakan Estavi. The latter placed a bid of $2.5 million.
