The businessperson of Turkish descent, who this week bought Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s first public message on the platform for $2.9 million (TL 24 million), has said he made a very wise investment, dubbing it a piece of human history.
“It’s a piece of human history in the form of a digital asset. Who knows what will be the price of the first tweet of human history 50 years from now,” Malaysia-based blockchain service Bridge Oracle CEO Sina Estavi told the BBC.
Estavi said he acquired the “Mona Lisa of the digital world,” comparing the 15-year-old tweet to Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci’s famous work of art.
The tweet – “just setting up my twttr” – was Dorsey’s first tweet, made on March 21, 2006.
