The Pakistani friendship break-up meme that went viral in 2015 has now been auctioned off as an NFT (non-fungible token) and sold on Friendship Day for $51,530 or 20 ethereum by Alter.

Muhammad Asif Raza Rana, a Gujranwala man shared the saga of his friendship through a photoshopped post titled, ‘Friendship ended with Mudasir’. The post went viral on Facebook and made headlines across the globe.

The Facebook post explained how Rana had found a new best friend in Salman Ahmad Naqash after taking away the title from Mudasir Ismail Ahmad, who had been his best friend until then. Further, he informed people about the major update about his life, alleging that Ahmad was selfish and had an attitude problem.

After all this time, the meme was auctioned as one of Pakistan’s first meme NFT, selling for $51,530 or 20 ethereum by Alter, which conducted the sale on the digital art marketplace Foundation, the world’s largest platform for NFT listings.

Talking to VICE, Rana said, “I would never have known that [the post] would go so viral and that it would spread all over the world. So many news agencies interviewed us. We’ve even had a cartoon made about us,” further added, “The people of Poland love it so much. I received Polish visa offers from two or three people. They even wrote my name on the walls there.”

Rana in the latest live stream on Facebook after the auction featured his former best friend and said, “We all are together and we meet at times as well.”
