World’s first SMS sold as a NFT

Vodafone has sold World’s first SMS to be sent. They were sold at a Paris Auction House called Aguttes Auction House, as reported by Deutsche Welle. The Auction fetched €107, 000 which is equal to a whooping $121, 000.

World’s first SMS was sent on 3rd December, 1992. It’s been almost 3 decades since! What’s even more exciting is the content of the text. The text was a simple wish, ‘Merry Christmas‘. I think the time of the auction couldn’t have been better. 

It’s the Christmas season. What better news could be for all the Christmas enthusiasts? Merry Christmas to you all as well!
