We could have remained pseudonymous, but we decided to drop a few hints with Christie’s, and a few more in Clubhouse. Now here’s the story of how crypto gave two Indians the chance to take part in the largest #NFT sale in history. https://t.co/cQ4LdovRzO

He said that he gave his name to show Indians and people of color that they too can be successful. According to him, the cryptocurrency industry makes all people equal.
According to Sundaresan’s profile on Linkedin , he is the CEO of the consulting firm Portkey Technologies and co-founder of the cryptocurrency ATM provider Bitaccess.
Everydays: The First 5000 Days went under the hammer for $ 69.3 million at Christie’s. The final bid was $ 60.3 million, but fees were also included in the price. The auction house noted that this made Winckelmann one of the most valuable artists living today.
Everydays: The First 5000 Days is a collage of thousands of Winckelmann’s works published online since 2007. The auction was announced on February 16.
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 the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, refused to sell the song about NFT in the form of NFT , for which Beeple offered $ 69 million.
