FRAME today reflects on EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS by digital artist Beetle, an image is currently impressed in the eye of any people in the world who has browsed in any kind of media. It is a work of digital art that has become a market operation since when auction house Christie’s has sold the work for $69,346,250 paid in cryptocurrency thanks to the token NFT capable of certifying the work as unique and of taking care of all the transactions phases, granting security with anonymity. The transaction has happened and something has already irreversibly changed. Nevertheless, it leaves many things to reflect upon, about what uniqueness means in the digital domani, about anonymity as a security guarantee and everything relies in the middle.
