Give yourself the first SMS in history

It was 6:09 pm on December 3, 1992. Vodafone CEO Richard Jarvis receives the first text message ever on his Orbitel 901: “Merry Christmas.” It was then sent from a computer. As Le Figaro reports, 29 years later, this message is for sale. The British operator, which has expanded and modernized its range, will put it up for auction.

The Aguttes house will offer it on December 21 in the form of NFT, a certificate of digital ownership. The organizer specifies that in addition to this certificate, the lucky winner will be entitled to an animated version of the “digital communication code” as well as a “digital frame” that must represent the phone in question at that time.

Few millions?

In any case, it’s a safe bet that auctions will skyrocket. On the one hand, because the Aguttes auction house estimates its price between 100,000 and 200,000 euros, details Le Figaro. Also because the funds raised will be donated to a charity, in this case the United Nations Refugee Agency. Finally, because NFTs have been on the rise in recent weeks, some buyers are willing to invest large sums to become homeowners. The first website created, like the first email, but also the first tweet, has already been put up for sale.

Last March, Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, sold his first tweet for $ 2.9 million. It represented an image of the message “I create my Twttr account” (“just set up my twttr”). It was acquired by the businesswoman Sina Estavi. And even the lesser known ones sometimes sell NFT at incredible prices. A 12-year-old boy had parted ways with a series of small pixelated drawings made while on vacation for the sum of £ 290,000 (about € 338,000). As Christmas approaches, this first SMS could make people happy.
