It is noteworthy that it was $ 69 million that Beeple raised on March 11 for the sale of its collection of drawings “Everyday: The First 5000 Days” (Everydays: The First 5000 Days). The collection consists of 5,000 images that Beeple has been creating over 5,000 days (since May 2007).
The artist’s work became the first lot in the history of the Christie’s auction house, which was sold for cryptocurrency. Payment for the painting was done in Ethereum, and Christie’s commissions were paid in USD.
NFT tokens are unique and not divisible. Such a token is used to confirm ownership of an object; it cannot be replaced without the consent of the owner.
