Vodafone auctioned off the world’s first ever SMS text message, which contained ‘Merry Christmas’, as an NFT. This festive message was sent on the Vodafone network in December 199 and all proceeds received will be donated to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
A non-fungible token (NFT) is essentially unit of data on a digital ledger called a blockchain, with each one representing a unique digital item, including art, audio, videos, video game items, and now, augmented reality homes. Artist Krista Kim recently sold “Mars House,” an NFT-minted digital house for 288 ether, currently valued at over $450,000 USD. This is one part of the artist’s grand vision for the role augmented reality will play in the world.
