JPGE image sold by Beeple with 69 million, which is the world most expensive NFT sold.
The Everydays are based on Mike Winkelmann's 5000-day life. 5000 digital images made up Winkelmann's Everydays collection. It was the higest nft sold highest price ever paid for a non-fungible token (NFT) by Christie's in 2021.
In May 2007, Beeple began posting a new piece of artwork every day. Without interruption, Winkelmann creates over 5,000 digital pictures.
As an artist, Beeple has made incredible progress from Day 1 (1 May 2007) to Day 5,000 (7 January 2021). A basic drawing was made every day to begin the process. After Beeple began working in 3D, new abstract themes, colors, forms, and repetitions emerged. During the past five years, he has evolved his digital photography.
Buyer of Everydays
Vinesh Sundaresan, founder of Metapurse NFT and MetaKovan, has purchased the NFT. A 42,329 Ethereum was spent by Sundaresan to buy NFT.
Media attention surrounding the Everydays auction led Sundaresan and Winkelmann to market twenty other Beeple works. A publicity stunt has been alleged to have taken place during the auction.
However, Sundaresan does not own the copyright to the NFT. Web browsers can be used to view NFT in a virtual museum. Among the world most expensive NFT sold today is Everydays.
