A 1973 handwritten job application from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is once again up for auction. But this time; you can bid to buy either the original document or an NFT version.
The one-page-long application was created by Jobs after he dropped out of Reed College and three years before he founded Apple.
It doesn’t list a position or the company but says he was interested in electronics tech or design engineer positions.
His skills included computer and calculator experience.
Jobs co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak in 1976.
NFTs or non-fungible tokens are assets that delegate ownership of a virtual item like a picture; tweet or video, typically paid for in ethereum cryptocurrency.
The asset can only be held by one person at a time and ownership is recorded on a digital ledger that underpins cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

The auction website says it’s selling the real copy and a digital version in an effort to find which has more value.
It also gives the owner a way to make more money off of a single document.
As of Thursday morning, the physical version has a top bid worth $1,000 while the NFT has a top bid worth $545.93.
It was last sold for over $222,000 in March.
Collectors have shown they’re willing to pay top dollar for NFTs.
In March, auction house Christie’s sold an artwork compiled by digital artist Beeple for $69 million.
The hype around digital collectibles waned in June when NFT sales began to plunge.
The auction, organized by London-based entrepreneur Olly Joshi, is set to close at 5 p.m. ET on July 28.
