The Merge officially became the most expensive NFT ever sold on December 2, 2021, with almost 30,000 collectors pitching together for a total cost of $91.8m.
It's the only NFT to be in the top 10 that's owned by multiple people.
Beeple piece and the most expensive NFT ever sold to one sole owner — and there’s a good reason for it.
Everydays: the First 5000 Days — $69.3m
Beeple’s artwork is so high-tier and highly respected within the community, and this piece is essentially a collage of 5000 pieces of his work. Starting from 2007, he pledged to create one piece of art every day, and this is the result. Needless to say, it was worth the effort.
5000 Days in unique art it's something that is amazing and a true testament to what NFT is all about painting a collage of 5000 individual works on canvas would be an impossible task but with digital NFTs it's very doable and the result speaks for itself.
