Why are the Apes so bored? What do Cryptokitties eat? And how do cereal club bowls know just how much milk to pour into their heads?! Transcending in the NFT space doesn’t necessarily mean having the best ideas. This list of the 5 weirdest NFTs ever sold will prove that sometimes the dumbest ideas take home the prize.
The 5 weirdest NFTs ever sold:
- Charmin’s Toilet Paper
In 2021, Procter & Gamble came up with their NFTP marketing campaign. Their very own non-fungible toilet paper. You read that right, non-fungible toilet paper! Charmin only offered 5 NFTPs featuring images or GIFs of toilet paper rolls decorated with flowers and the slogan “enjoy the go” to make matters even worse. The NFTs sold for as high as $4,000, but at least it went to charity. Charmin stated that 99.9% of the proceeds were donated to Direct Relief.
Just when you thought NFTs were only there for humans to enjoy, comes the twig. Thanks to a couple in New York who have a dog toy business, you can now buy an NFT for yourself and your dog’s enjoyment. Twig, 2021 is a digital image of a twig and is “one-of-a-kind, original artwork curated by a dog for dogs.” Whatever that means? Until now there is only one Twig, 2021 available and its price starts at $1,200. The lucky bidder will not only get a digital image of the twig but, uniquely, the actual twig!! It comes with a presentation stand and a homemade aluminum display case. Yay for your dog?
We’ve witnessed people buy the most bizarre NFTs for ridiculous prices. But we always thought maybe they see something that we don’t? Not this one. The buyer who paid $63,000 for Rhea Myer’s secret artwork NFT does not know what the artwork looks like.
The buyer got a tokenized contract that says they own the art, but the art itself has yet to be created. “There’s nothing rarer than something that doesn’t actually exist,” says Myers. Is this some sort of joke?
Colors are also some of the weirdest NFTs
I can’t believe I’m saying this but you can buy a color.. Broadening the horizons, the weirdest NFTs apparently don’t even have to be artwork. They could be something as simple as.. A color. You can now mint a frame painted in the color of your choice and keep it in your blockchain wallet. Or maybe sell it to someone who also likes this color?
“Boiled red bean brown” and “Chinese purple” are both unique color NFTs you buy on TzColors. The most expensive one, “Coffee” sold for an astounding $8,000. but if you want an ordinary “standard” color, you can have one for around $80.
WWW Source Code
Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the world wide web creator, also contributes to the NFT space. Over 3 decades after his invention, Lee decided to auction off the WWW source code as an NFT named “This Changed Everything.” He started the bid at $1,000 but it eventually sold for a whopping $5.4 million. The buyer remains unknown to date.
Even though the weirdest NFTs probably started as a silly idea, some of them surprisingly turned out to be quite profitable for their creators. Still, the future of NFTs and the crypto world remains to be vague. Before hopping aboard any NFT investment, always do your deep research and remember prices and returns are never guaranteed. And even though owning and flipping NFTs looks super cool, never invest more money than you can afford to lose.
