Apple iPod 2001 1st Edition (Sealed)

About the Asset

This is a 5GB first generation Apple iPod built 17th December 2001 (original release was a couple of months prior).

Still sealed in its box, it’s the third OG Apple product to IPO.

  1. An original iPhone debuted on Otis and is up 250% from the IPO price (as of writing, 28th September, 2021).
  2. An identical version of this iPod dropped on Rally in July 2021 with a market cap of $25,000. It’s not traded yet.

Apple shares were $0.38 each when this launched. If the owner had spent $399 on Apple shares rather than buying an iPod and keeping it sealed, they’d have $152,638 today.

About the drop

This asset will drop on Otis 28th September 2021 with a market cap of $20k and no retained equity.
