The Wall Street Journal: NFT Artists Get First Major Test Since Crypto’s Collapse

VII. Wormfood - LUCI: Chapter 3 Donated by Sam Spratt to MAPS for Christies

Summary: The Wall Street Journal reports on Christie’s recent NFT art auction, “Cartography of the Mind: A Curated NFT Sale to Benefit MAPS,” highlighting how the charity initiative exceeded expectations by raising $1.6 million from the sale of art donated to MAPS by 27 leading visionary artists. “The Christie’s sale amounted to a who’s who of NFT artists including Beeple, Refik Anadol, and Mad Dog Jones. They rose to global prominence amid last year’s bonanza for digital art, thanks to flush cryptocurrency investors and the advent of digital receipts known as non-fungible tokens, or NFTs,” says Kelly Crow of The Wall Street Journal.
