Invest in an iPhone

Welcome to the latest issue of Trading Updates/Cultural Items – FREE Version.

Today we’re digging into a special piece of cultural history – First run original iPhone 2G sealed in its box.

It’s one of the five assets scheduled for live trading this week on Otis and will go live Wednesday at 10:30 EST.

What is the asset?

The OG iPhone originally dropped in late May 2021.

In summary, it’s an original first generation iPhone still sealed in its box. Based on quite a lot of Googling around and eBay stalking, these are pretty rare.

What is the current status of the asset?

The iPhone IPO’ed in May with a market cap of $13,100, and this was our recommendation at the time:We recommend this drop based on its asymmetric upside. Worst case scenario is it goes to zero, losing $13,100; best case is it’s worth $250k in a year or two.

It was trading with a market cap of $43,662 a couple of weeks ago when Otis halted trading to roll out real time trading.
