First, it was the Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes, and now her billionaire boyfriend, Ellon Musk. It seems that both are pretty preoccupied with the NFT buzz.
On Monday, March 15, the founder of SpaceX and the CEO of Tesla Motors posted a sneak peek of his recent techno track about NFT.
In less than 12 hours, the 2:20 minute video received over 6.5 million views and was retweeted 26.1K times.

The track has captivating beats with two-line lyrics saying: “NFT for your vanity, computers never sleep, it’s verified, it’s guaranteed,” over and over again.
A few hours after posting the video, he tweeted:
“To celebrate the adoption of digital currencies, I have a crypto gift! Visit — elon5.com.”
He posted the track in an animated looping video in a space-like setting. The video had the word “Hodl” displayed. Many interpreted it to be short for “hold on for dear life,” while others believed it was a deliberate misspelling for the word “hold,” where he was trying to tell bitcoiners to hold and not rush to sell their tokens.
Many also noticed that the golden dogs that were orbiting around the video were used to refer to Dogecoins, another cryptocurrency.
Whether the track was released just for fun or had a specific message behind it, it was literal ear candy.
