Elon ‘Technoking’ Musk turns down $1 million offer for an NFT says ‘it doesn’t feel right’


Earlier this week Elon Musk coined himself as our new techno-overlord when he changed his job title to the ‘Technoking of Tesla’ shortly before dropping his very own techno track.

“I’m selling this song about NFTs as an NFT,” tweeted Musk along with a music video for the unnamed track which contains crypto jargon like the words ‘Vanity Trophy’, ‘Computers Never Sleep,’ and ‘HODL’ – a term referring to the strategy of holding assets instead of selling them.

Shortly before releasing the track (which we can only assume was produced by his partner, Grimes who recently sold her own collection of artwork as NFTs for $6 million), it was announced that Musk had changed both his and Tesla CFO Zach Kirkhorn’s job titles.

NFT, for your vanity, computers never sleep, it’s verified, it’s guaranteed!”

“Effective as of March 15, 2021, the titles of Elon Musk and Zach Kirkhorn have changed to Technoking of Tesla and Master of Coin, respectively,” the electric car company said in a new regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

24 hours after renaming himself the Technoking of Tesla and releasing his track via Twitter, Musk’s tweet was minted as an NFT on auction platform Valuables and it soon attracted a bid of $1.12 million from a user called @sinaEstavi.

But by Tuesday evening, Musk seemed to have a change of heart and turned down the offer tweeting, “Actually, doesn’t feel quite right selling this. Will pass.”
