Christie’s becomes Beeple’s auction house

Although the NFT sale of “Every Day: The First 5000 Days” was important to London’s Christie’s gallery, this is not the first time it has been a trend to sell works by Beeple. A little over a week ago, the gallery announced that a Beeple’s NFT was sold for almost $29 million.

The gallery had published the NFT “Human One,” which showed a man in space garb that moves in different climates, which seemed amazing. However, this NFT work attracted the attention of enthusiasts who did not hesitate to bid, reaching $28,985 for which it was sold. This work by Beeple would correspond to the best value of his entire life as a digital artist.

Beeple NFT pieces also compete among the most valued and virtual pieces, such as the CryptoPunk collection, a trend in the non-fungible market.

The NFT market grows every day, offering many unique pieces valued in thousands of dollars, like CryptoPunk number 9998 that closed an auction on 124,457 Ethereum. That NFT piece is worth $526 million with a starting value of $4,234 per ETH.

After these advances with the Beeple auctions, the artist will launch a new collection, and Christie’s will be his place to show them. MetaKovan should also look forward to the unique images the artist shows at their next auction.
