Elon Musk joins the NFT bandwagon
Non-fungible tokens are digital assets whose unique identity and ownership are verified on a blockchain. They basically represent a wide range of unique tangible and intangible items. The concept became more popular this year, as people keep bidding millions of dollars for such digital collections. Joining the NFT market, Elon Musk shared his techno track about NFTs on Monday, saying, “I’m selling this song about NFTs as an NFT.”
The techno track has a duration of 2:20, with the lyrics:
“NFT for your vanity, computers never sleep, it’s verified, it’s guaranteed.”
The digital artist, Beeple, is also offering to purchase the techno track NFT for as much as $69 million.
However, the billionaire is looking to sell his NFT in Dogecoin.

In response to Beeple’s offer, the founder of SpaceX said he wants about 420 million DOGE for the techno track NFT. This equates to $25.2 million, following the price of DOGE at $0.06 during press time.
