The art world has been flipped on its head. Welcome to the world of NFTs – where artists are finally being paid their worth in the currency of the future: cryptocurrency. Yes, you heard it right, the world of Bitcoin and Ethereum has collided with art, and the result is nothing short of spectacular.
Beeple and Pak: The New Serena and Blair of the CryptoArt World
Beeple and Pak are ruling the art world. These digital artists are making waves in the blockchain scene, creating non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that sell for millions. Beeple’s “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” took the crown as the most expensive NFT ever sold, fetching a staggering $69.3 million at Christie’s auction. Pak, not far behind, has seen their abstract collections totalling a cool $100 million. It seems that the reign of the traditional artist is over as these digital kings and queens take their place.
NFTs are Democratizing Art
The underdogs are rising to the top in the world of NFTs. Artists like Tyler Hobbs, Dmitri Cherniak, and XCOPY have seen their algorithmically generated pieces selling for millions. Their work ranges from the abstract to the dystopian, echoing the diversity of the digital world.
Even more exciting? Artists like Matt DesLauriers, Hackatao, Snowfro, Richard Lord, and Monica Rizzoli are making their marks. Their works, ranging from geometric abstractions to political commentaries, are redefining what it means to be an artist in the Web3 era. With NFTs, they survive and thrive in the digital landscape, earning a living from their passion.

In the world of Web3, talent isn’t determined by who you know or where you come from. It’s about innovation, creativity, and the courage to venture into the new. And just like our favorite show, this world is filled with surprises, twists, and drama. So, whether you’re a Nate, a Chuck, or a Dan, there’s a place for you in the NFT world.
But remember, in this world, you can’t hide your sales or your Ethereum wallet – because just like I’m watching the Up.
