Megadeth NFT Sells for $18,000
Thrash legends Megadeth sold their 1st NFT for 8.4 ETH, which is a little over $18K USD, on 4/12/21, according to The PRP.
20% of the Megadeth NFT sale will go to the NFT’s creator, who will pay taxes on it in 2022, presumably with a 1099. I would advise the band’s members to put the remaining 80% in a 401(k), but that’s just my 2 cents.
This follows the sale of Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan’s first NFT on 4/2/21 for 6.429973513 ETH, which is almost $14K USD.
Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop is also selling NFTs but has thus far made 0.0 ETH, which is precisely $0.00 USD, or £0.00 GBP (since Wornsop is British).
The 411 on NFTs is that they’re basically gloried GIFs for S.O.B.s with low IQs IMO. FU if you disagree.
