Top 10 Most Expensive NFTs of All Time  

When digital artist Kevin McCoy made the first non-fungible token or NFT called “Quantum” in 2014, did he ever imagine it would become a digital sensation?


In 2021, NFTs exploded in popularity, taking the crypto market by storm. Besides art, NFTs have been making waves in other industries, including eSports, online casinos, and video games.


Although the craze over NFTs we witnessed in 2021 has waned a bit, they are still minting billions of dollars while changing hands.


Here is a list of the top 10 most expensive NFTs of all time. Here we go!


Everydays: The First 5000 Days

Everydays NFT is a digital collage comprising 5,000 separate images made by Beeple every day spanning more than 13 years. The NFT went under the hammer at Christie’s auction house for a whopping $69.3 million in March 2021.

Clock

Clock NFT is the brainchild of Pak and Julian Assange, which counts the days that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been in prison and raised funds for his legal defense. In November 2021, Clock fetched $52.7 million and went to AssangeDAO, who raised funds to buy the NFT.

Human One

Beeple makes a comeback for the No. 3 position on this list with Human One. The uniqueness of this NFT is it has both a physical and a digital element that changes based on Beeple’s input. In November 2021, Human One fetched a selling price of $28.9 million.

CryptoPunk 5822

CryptoPunk 5822, created by Larva Labs, is an iconic “alien” punk with a trait that only nine CryptoPunks share. In February 2022, the NFT changed hands for $23.7 million.

CryptoPunk 4156

CryptoPunk NFT continues to dominate this list. In December 2021, CryptoPunk 4156 netted $10.26 million. The NFT got its name due to its investor Punk4156, who later altered it to 4156.
