    Beeple NFT artwork sells for $6.6 million

    Non-fungible token artwork seller Nifty Gateway called the sale of the Donald Trump-bashing piece by Mike “Beeple” Winkelmann historic

    The unique NFT art was part of the first drop on Nifty Gateway by Beeple, also known as Mike Winkelmann. The record-setting price was obtained when “CROSSROAD #1/1” was resold on the secondary market, the company said on Twitter. “History has been made,” it added. “We can confirm that this is a legitimate sale - this was brokered by Nifty Gateway's art buying services."

    Crypto art paying tribute to Bitcoin’s inventor sells for $130,000 at auction

    The selling price of the Satoshi Nakamoto-themed artwork was seven times the “high” estimate set by Christie’s, one of the world’s best-known auction houses

    In “Block 21,” 322,048 digits from Satoshi Nakamoto’s original code for Bitcoin are painstakingly engraved and individually painted. It’s part of a wider collection of 40 circular panels called “Portraits Of A Mind” that feature a full transcription of all 12.3 million digits. Bidding at the Christie’s auction house had originally started at $22,000—far beyond the initial estimate of $12,000 to $18,000—but the artwork ended up selling for a whopping $131,250.
