One of the most viral memes, ‘Friendship ended with Mudasir’ NFT, has been auctioned online for 20 Ethereum, equivalent to $51,776 to London-based startup Alter.
A man from Gujranwala, Pakistan named Muhammad Asif Rana Raza photographed a picture in 2015. He had posted it on Facebook, which got shared millions of times and had become a global sensation.
The post shows how Salman Ahmad Naqash became Rana’s new friend after their friendship with Mudassir Ismail Ahmed. Mudasir had been Rana’s friend for a long; once the friendship ended, Rana created a photoshopped picture to express his feelings.
The NFT had been sold through a platform called Foundation.
It is indeed a life-changing moment for Rana, says Zain Naqvi, Co-Founder of Alter.
While Rana did a live stream that shows mudasir on live stream, Rana also claimed that Mudasir is still his friend and the meme was to poke fun at his friends.
Rana also thanked the people who took part in the auction.
