NFT are a trend topic right now, with celebrities like movie stars or players getting involved and other celebrities like building businesses around them. You can read about exactly what NFTs are in our explanatory piece. That’s why we looked around for the most expensive, craziest and most exciting NFTs and collected a few examples.
Everydays – The First 5000 Days
This one which is used usually as the main image about the subject is the benchmark among NFT artworks. Anyone who finds out about NFTs will sooner rather than later end up with this work by Winkelmann aka Beeple. Beeple has been posting a new picture online almost every day for many years. From all these works he created a collage last year, created an NFT from it and called it Everydays – The First 5000 Days. In Spring last year, this was then auctioned off by the auction Christie’s, fetching a price of almost 70 million dollars – making it the most expensive NFT in history.
Banksy Is Of Course On The List Too
When it comes to new arts and the styles, one name should not be missing: Banksy. The street artist, who is probably the most successful unknown artist in the world, has long since left his mark on the NFT sector and in more ways than one. For example, a team of crypto lovers bought a print from Banksy in which Banksy himself criticizes the art industry, burned the image online stream for advertising purposes and auctioned it as an NFT. The dematerialization of art in the online world is practiced here, the gaining of a digital eternity value through the destruction of the image body is propagated. The whole thing is then an advertising vehicle for the crypto sector, as the companies are behind the campaign.
Recently, Banksy’s webpage featured a page showing a CryptoPunks NFT. The picture sold for nearly 300,000 Euros on the Opensea, but a spokesman for the artist later told that Banksys was not behind the picture. After all, the buyer funnily enough under the pseudonym, got his money back later. He denied allegations that it was a stunt.
