“On 1 May 2007, Mike Winkelmann, aka the digital artist Beeple, posted a new work of art online. He did the same thing the next day and the next, and the next one after that, creating and posting a brand-new digital picture, or ‘everyday’ as he called it, every single day for 13-and-a-half years. Now those individual pieces have been brought together in EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS, a unique work in the history of digital art.”

What are NFTs?

Standing for “non-fungible tokens”, NFTs are digital goods that cannot be exchanged for the same kind, meaning they are unique. They work on Ethereum network, and they cannot be stacked like any other cryptocurrency, which makes them an excellent way to store and share digital artwork, which needs to be unique and exclusive.

Many artists like Beeple are creating new digital artworks and selling them for huge amounts of money nowadays. Grimes was one of them too, selling her NFTs for over six million dollars. Many people apparently think buying NFTs now is like buying antiques in the past, so this might be a form of investing for the %1. We’ll see what the future will bring.
