A man in Brooklyn, New York City is selling a year’s worth of fart audio clips recorded in quarantine.
Alex Ramirez-Mallis, 36, a film director speaking with NY Post asked if people are selling digital art and GIFs, why one can’t sell farts.
The film director is trying to capitalize on the craze by selling his NFT Names, ‘One Calendar Year of Recorded farts’.
Ramirez-Mallis and his four friends used to share recording of their farts on a Whatsapp group since March 2020, at the beginning of the global lockdown.
On the anniversary of the global lockdown, the five group members compiled all recordings into a 52-minute “Master Collection” audio file which is up for auction, with a top bid of $196 for the file with two days remaining.
However, individual fart recordings are available for 0.05 Ethereum cryptocurrency or $89 a fart. The group has sold one to an anonymous buyer.
“These aren’t even farts, they’re just digital alphanumeric strings that represent ownership. The art is just an avatar for value,” he added.
He shared the recordings were not made keeping the profit in mind.
