在苏富比(Sotheby 's)拍卖会上,万维网代码的NFT拍出540万美元

2021-7-4 17:19


苏富比拍卖了一个不可替代的代币(NFT),该代币由蒂姆·伯纳斯-李爵士在1989年编写的Web源代码支持。NFT最终以540万美元的价格售出。


不出所料,苏富比认为,这一定价代表了非ft的真实价值,参与拍卖的多名参与者显然也是如此,其中一半人以前从未参加过该拍卖行的任何活动。


拍卖参与者,尤其是新的竞拍者,很可能是过去几个月一直在跟踪市场趋势的加密和NFT爱好者。因此,他们应该对nft背后的价值和波动性有一个很好的理解。


特别是这个非功能性测试,它是由一段历史支持的,因为代码本身是无形的,所以将其转换为非功能性测试似乎是合适的。获奖者还收到了一段编写代码的动画视频、完整代码的可缩放矢量图形,以及蒂姆爵士写的一封信。


虽然获胜者并不真正拥有万维网,但拥有这个过去几十年最伟大、最具创新性发明背后的代码仍然是一件很酷的事情。


与此同时,NFTs的平均价格在2月中旬达到了4000美元的峰值,到4月暴跌了近70%至1400美元。如此剧烈的价格变化引发了对该行业财务可持续性和nft背后真正价值的质疑。今年年初,对nft的大肆炒作无疑夸大了它们的价值。


价格下跌是不可避免的,据业内人士称,这并不令人意外。因此,看到另一个以百万计的价格出售的非功能性薄膜是很有趣的,它引出了一个问题:它是否会影响非功能性薄膜拍卖的人为高价。


至于这次拍卖是否会影响未来的拍卖,只有时间能证明。然而,拍卖是发挥最大作用的市场力量。因此,一件商品的售价,即使是无形的,也是市场认可的最高价格。


与此同时,苏富比将开始实施一项技术,将艺术品的“数字双胞胎”打造为nft。拍卖行还出售了数字艺术家PAK的nft。而竞争对手佳士得(Christie’s)除了以6900万美元的价格在拍卖行以非公开拍卖的形式出售有史以来第一批数字艺术作品外,还拍卖了安迪·沃霍尔(Andy Warhol)的一些作品。

Sotheby’s auctioned a non-fungible token (NFT) backed by the source code of the Web, coded by Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989. The NFT ended up selling for $5.4 million.

Unsurprisingly, Sotheby’s believes that the pricing represents the real value of the NFT, as clearly do multiple participants in the auction, half of whom had never participated at an event at the auction house before. 

Auction participants, especially the new bidders, were likely crypto and NFT enthusiasts who have been following market trends over the last couple of months. Therefore they should have a good understanding of the value and volatility behind NFTs.

This NFT, in particular, is backed by a piece of history, and since the code itself is intangible, it seems appropriate to transform it into an NFT. The winner also received an animated video of the code being written, a scalable vector graphic of the full code, and a letter written by Sir Tim. 

While the winner does not actually own the world wide web, owning the code behind one of the greatest and most innovative inventions of the last few decades is still pretty cool. 

Meanwhile, The average price of NFTs peaked in mid-February at around $4,000 and plummeted by almost 70% to $1400 by April. Such a volatile change in prices raises the question about the industry’s financial sustainability and the real value behind NFTs. The hype around NFTs certainly inflated their worth at the beginning of the year. 

The drop in prices was inevitable, and according to members in the industry, unsurprising. As such, it is intriguing to see another NFT being sold in the millions, and it begs the question as to whether it will influence artificially high pricing across NFT auctions. 

As to whether this sale will influence future auctions, only time will tell. Nevertheless, auctions are market forces working at their finest. Therefore the pricing at which a piece sells, even if it is intangible, is the highest price at which the market agreed to value it. 

Meanwhile, Sotheby will begin implementing a technology that mints “digital twins” of pieces of art as NFTs. The auction house also sold NFTs from digital artist PAK. And competitor Christie’s, besides selling the first-ever digital art as an NFT at an auction house for $69 million, also auctioned some of Andy Warhol’s work.
