When people think of NFT artists, Hobbs is one of the first names that springs to mind. His Ethereum-based art collection fetched millions of dollars. The Fidenza Line is one of his most lucrative creations and many wealthy investors desire it (via India Times).
Some people don’t understand why NFTs receive such interest but the same can be said of all art. The reality is that they’re going nowhere and that they’re the future. Hobbs is one of the wealthiest NFT sellers in the world because of his outstanding success.
Better known by his moniker ‘Beeple,’ Winkelmann is the definition of NFT success. Christie’s Auction House considers him one of the three greatest living artists on the planet. That came after they sold an NFT of his work for $69 million (via The Verge).
Beeple has a massive fanbase that helped him to make his fortune. Meanwhile, Christie’s is one of the most famous auction houses on the planet so they validated his work and the industry. It was a game-changing moment because nothing like this had happened before.
