‘Friendship ended with Mudasir’, one of the highly viral memes to come out of Pakistan, has been auctioned at an online program by a Lahore and London-based origination Alter for 20 Ethereum tokens equivalent to $51,776 based on their current market price.

Initially, a roughly photoshopped graphic by a Gujranwala man named Muhammad Asif Raza Rana in 2015, the Facebook post was caught on fire and controlled international attention before becoming an ever-green terrific meme.

The post shares the tale of Rana retrieving a new best friend in Salman Ahmad Naqash and taking away the title of best friends from Mudasir Ismail Ahmad, who had been Rana’s best friend until the mentioned friendship ended. The explanations mentioned for the change were alleged selfishness, undue pride, and arrogance given by the now ex-best friend.

“Those who show (sic) me attitude, I keep them under my foot,” Rana had warned in the caption.

The declaration-turned-meme has now been auctioned on Foundation, the world’s largest platform for NFT listings, Zain Naqvi, Alter’s co-founder told Private News channel.

“It is a life-changing moment for the creators,” Naqvi added.

Despite Rana’s public devaluation of Mudasir in the nibbling order, his live stream on Facebook after the auction revealed that they were still friends all those years and such a public falling-out later. “We all are together, and we meet at times as well,” he said.

Concerning the auction itself, he said: “I am very very thankful to all the bidders who put the big bids on our Friendship Ended message”.

Meanwhile, the post now has a gigantic 47,000 likes, 27,000 comments, and 56,000 shares.
