Rapper Soulja Boy held an auction for a new song on Open Sea but there was a catch, he was only accepting bids in Shib!
Soulja best know for his hit song “Crank That”, released his new song Black Cartier as a NFT and was selling it to the highest Shib bidder.
It’s believed that Shytoshi Kusama (Volunteer Project Lead of Shiba Inu) bought the NFT for 150,000,000; due to the fact he previously tweeted out he was going to buy it for the same price.
Also the profile that made the $150,000,000 bid is believed to be Shytoshi’s because the profile has over 24 Shiboshi’s along with a ENS NFT that refers to Shytoshi on the profile.

OK @souljaboy I'll take the Cartier. My bid is 150M Shib ($9,630). That's about the cost of the watch from what I can see. If you accept, I'll keep the watch and transfer the song to whoever is your biggest fan. #SHIBARMY https://t.co/tXN20kn7TB
