About Sotheby’s Upcoming NFT Auction
Sotheby’s NFT auction, “Natively Digital: Oddly Satisfying”, will showcase numerous digital artworks inspired by the Reddit trend, “oddly satisfying”. This trend consists of surreal and mesmerizing video clips with hypnotic animations shared by the subreddit community since 2013.
Consequently, the auction will feature 66 NFT collectibles, including artworks from the iconic digital artist Mike Winkelmann (aka, Beeple), whose record-breaking NFT “Everydays: the First 5000 Days” sold for $69.3 million via a Sotheby’s Christie’s NFT auction this time last year.
Other world-renowned artists such as Clement Morin, ARC, Ryan Talbot, Lucas Zanottom, etc also took part in the project.
Placing Your Auction for “Oddly Satisfying” Collectibles
Sotheby’s is preparing to break the ground with its first “Natively Digital” auction of Oddly Satisfying during the Paris Blockchain Week celebrations on 20-24 March.
Nevertheless, those who can’t attend Sotheby’s first-ever NFT auction in Paris can attend the event virtually, as it will be held simultaneously in the metaverse.
The metaverse company, RLTY World, will also host keynote speeches from Paris Blockchain Week alongside a Web3 job fair.
Hosting the auction in physical and virtual spaces shows Sotheby’s commitment to reaching a broad audience while embracing new technologies to stay ahead of innovation.
