Van Gogh NFTs Sell for Over $1 Million Each
In a recent upsurge within the realm of digital art, two unique pieces inspired by the iconic works of Vincent Van Gogh fetched astronomical prices, each exceeding the $1 million mark in sales this week.
As reported by the on-chain platform CryptoSlam.io, one of these digital interpretations of a Van Gogh painting was acquired for a staggering 35.9999 BTC ($1,313,635) on November 18. A day prior, another piece sold for an equally remarkable 34.9999 BTC ($1,275,612).
This surge in prices signifies a notable resurgence in interest, mirroring the earlier fervor witnessed in the NFT market earlier this year. Recent statistics from CryptoSlam.io indicate a substantial 40% surge in global NFT sales during the second week of November, reaching a staggering $238 million.
What’s intriguing is the shift in dominance towards NFT collections on the Bitcoin network, surpassing those on Ethereum, amassing sales of $100 million in contrast to Ethereum’s $93 million. Other blockchain networks such as Solana and Polygon are also witnessing a surge in sales, contributing millions to the industry.
This surge in transactions arrives on the heels of an announcement by the Musée d’Orsay in Paris unveiling NFTs inspired by the final days of Van Gogh.
With each category offering 2,300 pieces, one presents an immersive augmented reality experience showcasing Van Gogh’s palette, while the other features digital art echoing his distinctive style.
Several market analysts perceive these million-dollar sales as a bullish sign for the future of NFTs. As digital art continues to solidify its position within the broader art landscape, the prospect of achieving record-breaking auction prices looms ever closer.
