Most expensive NFTs
Beeple’s First 5000 Days digital artwork holds the crown for the most expensive non-fungible token sold for now. After a bidding war that lasted for 2 weeks, on March 11 the final price for “Everyday: The First 5000 Days” was $69.3 million (38,747ETH).
Second and third place hold CryptoPunk 7804 with $7.8 million and CryptoPunk 3100 with $7.5 million.
I don’t know how long this record will last but there is one that could easily break it, of course, it is none other than Elon Musk. He auctioned off a song about NFTs because why not, and bidding reached $69 million but Mr. Musk decided not to sell it after all.
These next few sales were not record-breakers per se, but they did catch our attention and did much to promote and propel forward the whole NFT scene:
The one and only Nyan Cat, this animated flying kitty has been seen by millions online so it is no wonder it NFT sold for almost $600,000.
Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder, and CEO auctioned off his first tweet as an NFT. Currently, the highest bid is $2.5 million but the auction still has a few days left so we will see how it is going to end.
This video of LeBron James blocking a shot was sold for $100,000. It was sold on “NBA Top Shots”, this site is owned by the NBA and it is their new take on sports trading cards but, this time with blockchain and NFTs.
Actress Lindsay Lohan sold an image of her face for $17,000 and in this crazy market was resold in no time for $57,000.
Unlike Art in music, it is much more common to sell multiple NFTs of a song or album, they are still limited in number and still have that rarity factor that is the NFT selling point. It is not as easy to make a ranked list with music since data is usually for total sales for a song or album rather than a single biggest sale.
- Definitely, the most famous band in NFT right now is Kings Of Leon with their album When You See Yourself, which generated over $2 million in sales.
- Grimes, a Canadian singer, and songwriter sold almost $6 million worth of digital art on NFTs.
- DJ Steve Aoki auctioned off more than $4.2 million of his music on NFTs.
- Other artists are soon to follow, some that are expected to launch their one NFT soon are Deadmau5, Post Malone and Shawn Mendes.
