Elon Musk refused to sell a song about NFT, for which Beeple offered $ 69 million

The head of Tesla and SpaceX changed his mind about selling a techno track about non-fungible tokens (NFT).

Actually, doesn’t feel quite right selling this. Will pass.

“It seems to me wrong to sell this. I will refuse, ”the billionaire wrote.

On March 15, Musk posted the NFT on Twitter and announced that he would put it up for sale. On the Valuables marketplace, unknown people have announced an auction for the announcement tweet.

At the time of writing, the highest bid per tweet from a billionaire’s NFT is $ 1.1 million, made by Bridge Oracle founder Sinat Estavi.

Digital artist Mike Winckelman, aka Beeple, has offered $ 69 million for Musk’s NFT. In response, the billionaire requested 420 million DOGE – about $ 24.3 million at the exchange rate at the time of writing.

“Musk’s hype proposal helped distract tens of millions of his Twitter followers from news of Tesla’s executive reshuffle and the federal investigation into last week’s Tesla crash,” CNBC writes .

We will remind, in March, the head of Tesla appointed himself the “Technocorole” , and the financial director of the company Zak Kirkhorn – the “Master over the coin.”

Earlier, Musk’s girlfriend and mother of his sixth child, singer Grimes, sold the NFT collection of unreleased music for $ 6 million.
