Estavi has also bid USD 121,000 for an NFT of a 2019 tweet by the CEO of Binance, Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, on the same platform. The token sold just days ago for USD 6,600 worth of ethereum (ETH) and reads: “Slap yourself if you sold BTC under USD 10,000.”

Elsewhere, NFT fever shows no sign of subsiding, with a buyer snapping up an original Banksy art piece that was sensationally burned by its original buyer for USD 380,000 worth of ETH, per data from the OpenSea platform. The art world was shocked as the buyer, a blockchain firm named Injective Protocol, filmed the destruction of the physical original of Banksy’s Morons (White) from 2006, and minted an NFT.

Per CBS News, the firm had paid some USD 95,000 for the work and says it will donate the proceeds of the sale to a coronavirus pandemic-fighting charity.
