As the crypto world fusses over Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, another type of digital asset has quietly been gaining traction. NFT (Non fungible Tokens) are making a lot of waves in the crypto industry.
Non fungible assets are one of a kind pieces.They special type of cryptographic token which represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are thus not mutually interchangeable. This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, and many network or utility tokens that are fungible in nature.
The artwork comes from DC comic artist José Delbo and Trevor Jones, a crypto artist. There are five pieces in the collection, all animations or PNG files of the Dark Knight.The cryptocurrency tokens that represent official ownership of the artwork are one-of-a-kind.
What an opening initial bid of 100 ETH stated by Jose Delbo, the gem was later sold for about 150 ETH, making it one of the most expensive NFTs ever sold.
A set of limited edition artworks sold for a few thousand dollars a piece, but the largest sales concluded over the weekend. The biggest spender was “Maxstealth,” a Bogus also owns a handful of other high-value crypto art pieces.
Maxstealth spent $55,291 on one animation that walks the viewer through Trevor Jones’s graphical illustration of Batman to the tune of a cheesy, high-tempo Batman theme tune.
Then Maxstealth spent $111,3777 to win a bidding war against “Phillector.” “Showing his strength like that of batman” This was for a gravelly animation that slathers Trevor Jones’s paint brush strokes on an etching of Batman’s profile drawn by José Delbo.
The art describes Batman in all his amazing qualities, wealth, physical strength, intelligence and obsessive passion for Justice. The gravelly and dim nature of the art reveals his “Dark side” .
