Tesla CEO Elon Musk is grinding away once more. On Monday, he tweeted that he’s selling a song about NFTs – another way to say “nonfungible tokens,” essentially digital certificates of authenticity – as an NFT (so meta). This would give the purchaser the digital rights to proprietorship.
The song has a techno beat and repeats “NFT” again and again, ultimately getting to the female-sung lyrics “NFT for your vanity, computers never sleep, it’s verified, it’s guaranteed.” No, it doesn’t seem as though Grimes to me.
Musk posted the melody with a movement of a turning “vanity trophy” with heaps of references to various elements of the technology, including dogs representing, apparently, Dogecoin. You sort of need to see it yourself. He hasn’t said which platform he’ll be selling the song on, or when.
NFTs have gotten a huge load of consideration in the past few weeks, with artists, entertainers and individuals in the media engaging in selling digital rights to various things, CNET’s Rich Nieva revealed.
For instance, a clip of Lebron James ruining a fast break sold for $100,000 on Top Shot, the NBA’s marketplace for feature reels. Toward the beginning of March, Kings of Leon became the first band to declare the release of an NFT album, with three sorts of tokens that incorporate special artwork and perks. Pop star Shawn Mendez a month ago declared a line of digital goods as NFTs.
In the mean time, the Associated Press is selling an NFT electoral map of the 2020 US presidential contest. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is in any event, selling the first tweet on the platform as an NFT.
