Winckelmann previously sold his work “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” for $ 69.3 million. The painting is a collage of thousands of works by the artist, published on the Internet since 2007. The buyer turned out to be Vignesh Sundaresan, hiding under the pseudonym Metakovan.

At the end of February, Beeple’s Trump NFT token was resold for $ 6.6 million . In December 2020, the artist bailed out $ 582,000 for Crossroad.

Recall that on March 22, Beeple called the situation in the market of non- fungible tokens a bubble .

Earlier, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey sold his first tweet in the form of NFT for $ 2.91 million. The lot was bought by the founder of Bridge Oracle, Sina Estavi.
