Sean Ono Lennon, a British-American musician, songwriter, and producer, has auctioned a tokenized digital illustration on nonfungible-token marketplace Rarible.
The musician tweeted:
“Congrats @etyoung for winning the most important drawing ever drawn by anyone ever! May she treat you kindly in these winter months.”
However, Lennon first announced his NFT auction on Sunday by noting that it was his first experience with NFT art, as well as his first digital drawing.
The artist noted that the girl depicted in the artwork “subsists solely on Ethereum.”
The report said that NFTs have emerged as a major trend in the global art and crypto industries in recent years.
Thus, in October, auction house Christie’s sold a digital portrait of the Bitcoin code for more than $130,000, marking the first auction of an NFT at a major auction house.
