Jack Dorsey is putting his first tweet up for sale as an NFT, a nonfungible token. The Twitter CEO’s tweet — which read “just setting up my twttr” — will be 15 years old later this month. 

Dorsey announced the sale by linking to it in a tweet Friday at around 4 p.m. PT. A little over an hour an half later, the highest bid on the NFT was $110,000.

An NFT is a cryptographic token that is enjoying popularity with artists and musicians. The digital assets are stored on the blockchain. The Kings of Leon is selling its latest album as an NFT, and Christie’s is in the midst of its first NFT auction.
