Non- Fungible Tokens (NFT’s) are the hottest new topic of discussion in the global financial market. These unique, non-interchangeable digital assets are considered by many as the next step in the chain of economic evolution. Many believe that NFT will bring us closer to a more open financial market that is readily accessible to all. Now, a sensational internet meme has been sold as an NFT for $74,000. 

Our story began in 2013 when Katie Clem, the mother of Chloe and Lily Clem, decided to record her daughters’ reactions when they were told they were going to Disneyland instead of school. While Lily was visibly excited, her sister did not seem to share her joy. 

Chloe gave a disapproving, sassy, & concerned look, which made it quite clear that she was unimpressed. This side-eyed glance quickly became a beloved internet sensation, and over the past eight years, the video has been viewed over 20 million times. 

The NFT was sold to 3F Music, a music production company based in Dubai, for 25 ether. Ether being the crypto currency used in the Ethereum Network. At the time of the sale, the price tag of the NFT was around $74,000, and joins the Overly attached Girlfriend and Disaster Girl internet meme-based NFT’s acquired by 3F for $411,000 and $500,000, respectively. 

The NFT was sold on Lily Clem’s 16th Birthday, and the star Chloe who is now ten years old has already made plans for how she will spend her money. According to her mother, Lily plans on buying a horse and a pair of Air pods. The family also stated that they would place most of the earnings in a savings account while some of the money would be used to plan a trip to Walt Disney World.
