FTX sold its own NFT, a handwritten graphic that spelled “Test” at $270,000 USD.

Dubbed “Testing Testing 123 #1,” the first NFT art produced by the crypto exchange platform’s CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is a test of NFT listing on the FTX US. The minimal piece is “extra rare” as mentioned by the platform’s tweet as it is a one and only piece.

The crypto exchange platform has announced earlier in the week to enable users to mint custom NFTs, which are based on the Ethereum and Solana blockchains.
