Mutual “Achievement” of Beeple and NFT
“Everydays: The First 5000 Day” is an art NFT that Beeple commemorates that he has been working continuously for 5000 days since May 1, 2007, insisting on one work every day. The auction makes Beeple the third most expensive living artist in the world, which is only cheaper than “King of Contemporary Pop Art” Jeff Koons and “Godfather of British Art” David Hockney. To put it simply, NFT is a non-homogeneous token, a special digital asset. From MP3 to a JPEG picture, a tweet, a picture, and a basketball video clip, anything can become a NFT.
Beeple, who is a graphic designer from the United States, successfully combines his paintings with NFT to bring new blood to NFT. Beeple , whom is similar to the characteristics of NFT, is unique and can not be copied.
The success of Beeple itself is a very “step out of the circle” behavior. At present, Beeple has become the banner of virtual art, and we are witnessing the arrival of a subversion. After NFT “step out of the circle”, it attracts not only investors in the blockchain, but also many outsiders. Understanding the blockchain and holding NFT will play a positive role for the industry as a whole. In the past few months, entertainment, games, sports, art, music, fashion and so on have been launched. In addition, the number of NFT works has exploded. NFT, which breaks through time and space constraints, is growing at a rate not to be ignored. Sales in the NFT market hit an all-time high in the first quarter of 2021, creating more than $1.5 billion in trading volume.
