Popular “Charlie bit my finger” YouTube Video Sold as NFT for $760K
The famous “Charlie bit my finger” footage is the newest unforgettable and noteworthy video auctioned off as a Non-Fungible Token (NFT). Last Sunday, the NFT was marketed for $760,999, as per a website set up by the family of Davies-Carr.
“Bid to own the soon-to-be-deleted YouTube phenomenon, Charlie Bit My Finger, leaving you as the sole owner of this lovable piece of internet history (while also getting the chance to say Charlie bit your finger, if you want to see what all the hype is about).”
The video “Charlie bit my finger” was posted on YouTube 14 years back. With 883 million views, it has become one of the most watched videos on Youtube. In the footage, at the 55-second frame, Baby Charlie is seen “chomping down on his older brother Harry’s finger”.
An unnamed party offered a price in the final hours of the auction cycle, which sparked a price war and pushed the price up. Finally, “3fmusic” won the NFT by outbidding “mememaster.”
Although everyone can copy the video until it is removed, the winner of the auction will get a certificate of authenticity for the actual footage. According to the website, the NFT winner will also get a chance to make a spoof video with Harry and Charles (now teenagers).
The NFT frenzy has taken less well-known personalities in most videos into the spotlight in recent months, while still allowing them to auction their works for astronomically high prices. The “Disaster Kid” meme, which features a teenage girl giggling at a camera as building burns in the distance, ended up selling as an NFT for $425,000.
Several other personalities, such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem, have auctioned their NFT creations, demonstrating a keen interest in the technology. Dynamo Kiev, a leading football team in Ukraine, announced its plan to participate in Binance’s upcoming NFT platform on Friday.
And per the club, over 25% of their home game tickets will be sold as NFTs in the near future. Dynamo wants to be the technical pioneer in European football, as per Mark Ginsburg, the club’s chief of innovation.
“We have a well-calculated strategy and a clear goal over the next two years to make Ukraine’s best club the technological leader European football.”
Moonwalk, a fintech startup, collaborated with the club in January 2021 to develop the club’s endorsed coins, as well as cryptocurrency-related rewards, incentives, and games.
