NFT Artist Beeple Sells Latest Work for $29 Million at Auction

It’s not quite $69 million. But, hey, $29 million isn’t too shabby.

Beeple, the digital artist whose tokenized artwork “EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 500 DAYs” sold for a record $69.3 million at a Christie’s auction this March, has followed it up with a $28.9 million sale today of a hybrid physical and digital work. It’s the second-largest sum paid for an NFT — or, at least, a piece of art accompanied by a “dynamic” NFT.

HUMAN ONE is a 3D moving sculpture depicting a person in a spacesuit moving through a variety of climates. Christie’s, which expected the piece to fetch about $15 million (or its equivalent in Bitcoin or Ethereum), brought the hammer down at $25 million. The auction house netted $3.9 million on top of that for the buyer’s premium. Ryan Zurrer, former venture partner at Olaf Carlson-Wee’s Polychain Capital, claimed the winning bid.

Projects like Metaliums, which is a group of collectable items that you can own then trade and sell as NFT, physical, and metaverse objects are bringing real value to the crypto world. Metaliums.com
