The first SMS in history auctioned 107,000 euros

The first SMS in history was awarded this Tuesday at an auction organized by the Aguttes house, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, for the modest sum of 107,000 euros!

The 15 characters “Merry Christmas” were transmitted on December 3, 1992 by a computer engineer, through the British Vodafone network.

How can you sell an SMS? Well, in the form of NFT, from the English Non-Fungible Token, in other words, “non-fungible token”. This new type of digital asset, like a cryptocurrency, uses blockchain technology to authenticate a digital object and attest to its uniqueness.

For the founder of the auction house Aguttes, the value of this SMS is justified: “This NFT will always be something important in history because it marks a period and we need markers, we need markers for us to even be well established. Be moments that allow us to get things back on track. So I think whoever made this purchase is not taking any risk. There is something that really exists and that is important ”, says Claude Aguttes, the auctioneer who led the sale.

The buyer is Canadian and works on new technologies. The seller, telecommunications group Vodafone, has indicated its intention to donate the proceeds to UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency.
