The tweet, sent from Dorsey’s account in March of 2006, according to Reuters, received offers on Friday that went as high as $88,888.88 within minutes of the Twitter co-founder tweeting a link to the listing on ‘Valuables by Cent’ – a tweets marketplace.

NFTs are digital files that serve as digital signatures to certify who owns photos, videos, and other online media.

Old offers for the tweet suggest that it was put for sale in December, but the listing gained more attention after Dorsey’s tweet on Friday.

The 15-year old Dorsey’s tweet is one of the most famous tweets ever on the platform and could attract bidders to pay a high price for digital memorabilia. The highest bid for the tweet stood at $100,000 as of on Saturday.

Valuables by Cent was launched three months ago and compares the buying of tweets with buying an autographed baseball card. “There is only one unique signed version of the tweet, and if the creator agrees to sell, you can own it forever.”

After acquiring the tweet, the bidder receives an autographed digital certificate which is signed using cryptography, and also includes metadata of the original tweet, the company claims on its website.
