The British telecommunications giant Vodafone (LON 🙂 is planning to auction the world’s first short message service (SMS) in the form of a non-fungible token (NFT) on December 21. The SMS, which says “Merry Christmas”, was sent 29 years ago on the Vodafone network on December 3, 1992 and was received by Richard Jarvis, an employee at the time.

The historic 15-character SMS will be auctioned as NFT in a one-time sale by Aguttes Auction House in France, according to Romanian media Ziarul Financiar.

By auctioning the world’s first SMS in the form of NFT, Vodafone intends to redirect the proceeds to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (the UN Refugee Agency) to help forcibly displaced people.
