It was reported that on Monday night, a non-fungible token (NFT) in The Bowie Estate’s exclusive collection with OpenSea was sold at 96.5 ETH, or about $127,000. 

It was seen that to sell “Bowie on the Blockchain,” a 15-piece NFT collection, David Bowie’s estate collaborated with leading NFT marketplace OpenSea, in order to celebrate the British pop icon and the vibrant themes he employed throughout his career. 

On September 30, the collection was initially listed on the marketplace, which will feature artwork from nine artists across the NFT landscape.  

FEWOCiOUS, a 19-year-old NFT artist, has designed the collection highlight, which features an animated video clip with a seven-foot-tall sculpture that is dressed in one of Bowie’s custom suits from his archive.

While giving the description of the collection, the 19-year-old NFT artist said he thought it was really awesome that he always did what he wanted to do and designed a world he always desired to live in. That’s the emotion he always tries to capture in his artwork.  

As per OpenSea, the collection will continue to carry out Bowie’s legacy of reshaping the nature of musical performances, empowering digital communities, and being a supporter of new technologies within the span of his career. 

The other NFTs in the collection were sold for between 3 ETH ($4,000) to 7.5 ETH ($9,800).

NFT artist, Defaced titled the NFT as “It Became A Myth Land,” which was sold for the second-highest amount.
