    Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs is in the news again. Steve Jobs’ first job application recently sold in an auction for a whopping $3,43,000—or roughly ₹2.5 crores. The man behind Apple had handwritten an application way back in 1973 when he was only 18 years old and looking for a source of income. Read on to know more about the auction.

    Steve Jobs’ First Job Application Sells In Two Formats

    Steve Jobs had applied to an unknown company before he joined Atari in 1974. In a handwritten letter, Jobs had sent in an application for an undisclosed position. The job application letter doesn’t even disclose the name of the company. However, Jobs mentioned that he had a driving license.

    The job application sold in both physical and NFT formats. For those of you wondering what an NFT is, it stands for Non-Fungible Token. It identifies the buyer as the owner of any media that exists on the internet. NFTs are created rather uniquely and are generally traded in cryptocurrencies or dollars. For Steve Jobs’ first job application letter, Ethereum was the medium of exchange.

    Though considered the future of collectables, the Apple co-founder’s job application sold for much less as an NFT than its physical counterpart. Probably because people were more interested in owning a physical collectable rather than just a digitised version!

    Do you think all collectables will someday sell as digital tokens traded online? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
