Elon Musk mocks NFT

 Musk changed his avatar to an NFT collection image with the implication that it could be completely

Twitter users discovered that the above photo was posted by Musk in the traditional way, ie using an existing image file, although this social network has supported users to use real NFT as an avatar. Decrypt also states that "there is no indication that Musk owns the aforementioned NFTs". Some people mocked that this billionaire took the photo by right-clicking to save the image to his computer, instead of using NFT in the right way.

Michael Bouhanna, vice president of auction house Sotheby's, later spoke out accusing the billionaire of illegally using the company's photos. According to Bouhanna, the photo is in fact a collage of various NFT Bored Ape, used by Sotheby's to promote their auction.

"I admire what you do, but please delete your current profile picture, because I created it for Sotheby's sales," Bouhanna wrote. He also suggested that Musk can credit the source and that he is willing to send the original image on the condition that the owners of the aforementioned NFTs agree.

Musk did not respond to the above tweet. But then the Tesla boss posted the message "I don't know. Looks like it's replaceable".

Musk's tweet and profile picture are said to mock the NFT. NFT is an acronym for Non-fungible token, understood as irreplaceable codes that create uniqueness for a certain digital item. However, Musk used it as a regular photo, while denying its "irreplaceable" nature.
