Digital Artwork Sells for Nearly $70 Million

7m)oK!ktAyQ

A piece of art that exists only on a computer, created by BEEPLE, sold Thursday for nearly $70 million. BEEPLE's real name is Mike Winkelmann.

MP!*D==lRMFw

His artwork is a collection of 5,000 images called "Everydays – The First 5000 Days." The work he created is a common image file called a jpeg.

D(jf(rlahKV,%5zjUV^

It is the first time that an auction company – in this case, Christie's – sold a piece of art you cannot touch.

CS#yN66fKC64q

Artwork similar to BEEPLE's piece is now known as an NFT, or Non-Fungible Token. Artists use technology called blockchain to prove they are selling original work.

jfQEp(61&)6l0

BEEPLE will keep making money each time his art sells. He has a contract that pays him 10 percent of the selling price each time someone new becomes the owner.

;-7zM)*g=+wFwCJW!@

BEEPLE makes art about technology, wealth and American politics. He has also made art for music performances by Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and One Direction.

xmhlsi9houq5rlb!*2P

He said without the new technology that proves the identity of the owner and the creator, there was "no way to collect digital art."

Last month, a 10-second video showing an image of former U.S. President Donald Trump sold on an NFT marketplace for over $6 million.

When asked about his artwork selling for over 10 times that, Beeple said: "It's so crazy."

GLaCaL-7E=

Since the technology is so new, not many people know what the future holds for NFT art. Some may grow in value while others may become worthless, BEEPLE said.

eZol^7Oj87)v+&Z85k

NFTs are used to sell sports videos, pieces of land in worlds that only exist on computers and even the first-ever tweet by Twitter's founder.

BEEPLE said NFTs give people who want to invest their money an option beyond the stock market.

He said many people who are investing in NFTs do not really know what they are getting into.

m@OcJp9|jbz4K^UZpw

"From my experience, participants in NFT markets are not really thinking it through carefully."

At the same time, however, he said he expects NFTs to continue to grow.

&s~,_78(pio

He said he thinks the physical art market will become digital in the next five years.
