[UPDATE March 22, 2021]: Elon Musk has since said he won't be selling the NFT as it "doesn’t feel quite right."
Tesla's Elon Musk is auctioning off a non-fungible token (NFT)-based "artwork," with bids now over the million-dollar mark.
In typical joking style, Musk – who officially became "Technoking of Tesla" on Monday – announced the news, saying, "I’m selling this song about NFTs as an NFT."
