Art and Money Today: Goya Meets Beeple - CounterPunch.org

Tale of Two Artworks

On March 11, 2021, I bought an etching by Francisco Goya for $500. On the same day, two people with the pseudonyms Metakovan and Twobadour bought a Non Fungible Token by Mike Winkelmann (pseud. “Beeple”) for an astonishing $69 million at an online Christies auction. An NFT is a digital token representing the unique version of something, in this case a work of art.
