On 11 March 2021, auction house Christie’s concluded its first-ever sale of a non-fungible token. Titled Everydays: The First 5000 Days, the NFT is a digital collage made up of 5000 images taken over a thirteen-year period. The photographs and collage were made by digital artist, Mike Winkelmann, better known as Beeple. Following uncertainty around buying a non-physical asset, the NFT was purchased by the founder of the NFT Fund, Metapurse. Although their name remains unknown, the collector is widely referred to by the pseudonym Metakovan. Selling for almost $70 million, Metakovan paid for the work using cryptocurrency. The sale’s price tag put Beeple in the top three most valuable living artists after David Hockney and Jeff Koons.
