British auction house Christie's has sold a non-fungible token (NFT) by artist Mike Winkelmann, aka the digital artist Beeple, for a total of $69,346,250, which means the creator is among the most expensive living artists to date. Beeple has been working on his unique work of art since May 1, 2007.

The author of the NFT-collage captured society's obsession with technology and fear of it, the desire for wealth and resentment, as well as the recent political upheaval in America.
"I almost look at it now as though I am a political cartoonist. Except instead of doing sketches, I am using the most advanced 3D tools to make comments on current events, almost in real time," Beeple said.
As of press time, it remains unknown who is the buyer of the NFT-token worth of $69 million. As iHodl earlier reported, Taco Bell, a popular US fast food chain, hopped on the blockchain and cryptocurrency train by launching its own NFTs.
Notably, the sale of the tokens started late Sunday on the non-fungible token marketplace Rarible and all the tokens had been sold out. According to the company, the 25 tokens offered were apparently sold out within 30 minutes.
