A successful auction

The Nifty Gateway platform has auctioned off a collection of digital artwork created by the co-creator of the cult animated series Rick and Morty. The collection entitled 'The Best I Could Do' included more than a dozen pieces.

Justin Roiland's first foray into the crypto art ecosystem is therefore a success, with a sale totaling $ 1.65 million. Note that part of the proceeds will be donated to organizations to help the homeless in Los Angeles.

Some pieces, such as It’s Basically Tree Guy ($ 10) and Eligible Bachelors ($ 100), sold 100 copies each, while other editions included 20, 10, 5 NFTs.

A unique piece from the collection called The Smintons, with a clear nod to The Simpsons, was sold for $ 290,010. Other unique works of art have been auctioned at $ 150,000, $ 100,000 and $ 92,000.





What is an NFT?

Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are unique and identifiable. In other words, two tokens created will never be exactly identical, nor interchangeable, each being defined by specific characteristics.

This therefore means that an NFT can only be owned by one person, a quality appreciated by collectors, and which may be subject to speculation. Note that most non-fungible tokens are registered on the Ethereum blockchain.

NFTs have grown steadily in recent months, giving creators and artists a new opportunity to sell their works directly to their fans. The total non-fungible token trading volume even exceeded $ 8.2 million in December 2020.
