Beeple’s $69.3 Million Collage and 14 Other Pricey NFTs

Beeple’s ”Everydays: The First 5000 Days“ is now the third most expensive artwork sold by a living artist

Last week, an NFT by the digital artist Beeple, “Everydays: The First 5000 Days,” sold for a record $69.3 million and is now the third highest-valued artwork sold by a living artist.
