1. Daily: First 5,000 days — $69 million
Christie’s world-renowned auction house and artist Mike Winkelmann, known as Beeple, made irreplaceable token (NFT) history in late February when the house launched its first-ever auction: NFT without physical artwork. Within minutes, the bid rose to $1 million and eventually sold for a whopping $69 million.
The book is called Everyday Life: The First 5,000 Days. This is a collage of 5,000 images — one for each day since May 2007.
2. CryptoPunk #3100: $7.58 million
It is the most expensive cryptopunk, as well as one of the nine alien punks. It’s come a long way from its initial price tag of $76 in 2017 to its final sale of $7.58 million in March earlier this year.
3. CryptoPunk #7804: $7.57 million
This cryptopunk is one of nine alien punks. It was sold in March for just $10,000 cheaper than the most expensive Cryptopunk (it ranks higher).
4th intersection: $6.6 million
Created by an artist working under the pseudonym Beeple, this artwork demonstrates the author’s iconic style — irony and sarcasm towards public figures.
Crossroads was created in response to the US presidential election. The video in it should change depending on the election result (current picture or Trump winner).
5. Jack Dorsey’s first tweet (and Twitter): $2.9 million
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey sold his first tweet (aka Twitter) as an NFT. The tweet, sent on March 6, 2006, was put up for sale through the Valuables NFT platform.
Dorsey added that all profits from the sale of NFTs will be converted into bitcoins and donated to the GiveDirectly charity, which supports the poor. In total, around 50 BTC (around $2.9 million) were collected and donated.
