The first time an NFT Title of Ownership for an artist has ever been sold
It’s the very first time that an NFT Title of Ownership for an artist has been for sale in a marketplace. The idea is surprising, and yet we’re all trying to sell ourselves in one way or another. The collector who buys this title will store it in their cryptocurrency wallet as indisputable proof that they are the only person in the world to own an artist.
The very first “heartbeat” NFT to be sold
