CM – The world’s first text message sold as an NFT for $ 150,000


The message was originally sent by Vodafone programmer Neil Papworth to then director Richard Jarvis more than 29 years ago, and since it happened to be December at the time, the text read simply « Merry Christmas ». Now packaged as NFT, this piece of telecommunications history was auctioned off in Paris earlier this week for EUR 132,680 or approximately USD 150,367.

The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, will receive a digital copy of the SMS communication log Frame showing an animated phone receiving the SMS and of course a certificate of authenticity. Most importantly, in the spirit of Christmas, Vodafone is donating all of the proceeds from the auction to the United Nations Refugee Agency to help those who have sadly been displaced from their home and country.
