What is crypto art? Who are crypto artists and what do they do? How do you buy- and why - a crypto artwork? And what are the NFT, Non-Fungible Tokens?
Starting with the sale of Beeple's crypto artwork, "Everydays: the First 5000 Days", sold by Christie's for 70 million dollars, Andrea Zardin talks about the differences between the crypto art market and the traditional art market, explaining the artistic, sociological and economic implications for collectors and digital artists. It's the new episode of Stories from the art market, by BIANCHIZARDIN Contemporary Art.
