SHOCKING! Firm Buys Mandela’s Hands For $10 Million
How liquid would you be years after you are gone from the earth?
Well, our dear Nelson Mandela is still raking in millions of dollars 5 years after departing to the great beyond.
Mandela, who would have turned 100 years by July this year, had his gold cast hands sold for 10 million dollars in bitcoin.
Not sure if that Bitcoin part would have made sense to Madiba.
The castings of the late former South African president’s hand, palm and fist are believed to be the only ones left in the world.
Four casts of the hands were bought by a Canadian crypto-currency exchange firm Arbitrade from South African businessman, Malcolm Duncan, according to a report by BBC Africa.
The firm said it planned to launch a global “Golden Hands of Nelson Mandela” tour to educate young people about the anti-apartheid icon’s life.
This is the first-time artefacts of Mr Mandela have been sold in bitcoin.
Mr Mandela was jailed for 27 years for fighting white minority rule in South Africa.
He was released in 1990 and served as president from 1994 to 1999.
He died in 2013, aged 95.
