NFT - THE FUTURE OF ART?

In February 2021, Christie's auction house sold a digital work by Mike Winkemann, popularly known as Beeple, for the sum of $ 69.3 million, making the almost unknown author the third most sought-after living artist in the world, after David Hockney and Jeff Koons.

Last week, the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan received an instruction manual valued between $120,000 and $150,000. The manual itself is not an artwork, but 14 pages of detailed layouts on where, how, and how often the banana must be replaced.
