Back in March, he sold Everydays: The First 5,000 Days for a whopping $69.3 million. That was, and remains, the most expensive non-fungible token ever sold.
Beeple's done it again.
The digital artist has created a dramatic 3D sculpture called HUMAN ONE.
Dubbed "the first human to be born in the metaverse," a person wearing a space helmet explores a series of dystopian landscapes.
The art shown on the screens is selected from a pool of one-minute video clips.
But here's a particularly cool feature: Beeple plans to continually add new imagery throughout his lifetime — reflecting the changing world we live in, and creating a special bond with the artwork's owner.
Beeple — whose real name is Mike Winkelmann — is making a killing from NFTs.
This latest purchase means that Beeple also holds the record for the second most-expensive NFT ever sold.
Speaking at Decrypt and Yahoo! Finance's Crypto Goes Mainstream event, NFT entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk expressed similar concerns, warning:
"The conversation is about to get very interesting when we hit an NFT winter, because there's way too much short-term greed, and supply and demand issues."
