In addition to being the first single-owner NFT auction ever, "Inside the World of MaxStealth: A Timeless Collection" is also the first NFT sale ever to take place in person at Sotheby's.
MaxStealth, a Web3 pioneer and NFT collector who was born in New Zealand, also possesses a number of other priceless works of cryptographic art. He holds pieces by XCOPY, Pak, Hackatao, and Beeple in his personal collection. That is true! On September 14 at 4 p.m. EDT, some of these historic NFTs will now be auctioned off at Sotheby's New York auction house.
Conversion Routine and Tide Routine, two of Pak's works, are en route to the block. The artist's continuing "Routine" series includes these NFTs.
Also included in the 26 NFTs is the Departed piece by renowned GIF artist XCOPY. It has the distinctive dark glitch style of XCOPY, which MaxStealth acquired on the secondary market.
One of the best-known artists, Beeple, is well-known for his "Everydays: The First 5000 Days" NFT, which caused quite a sensation. Bull Run, Infected, and Into the Ether are three of his works that will be auctioned off.
From "Inside the World of MaxStealth: A Timeless Collection," "Elephant Dreams" by RAC and Andrés Reisinger and three amusing cartoons by Hackatao are some noteworthy NFTs.
The centrepiece of the collection is a set of seven NFTs known as "The Great 7," which were acquired over the course of one week in October 2020. These include pieces by Trevor Jones & José Delbo, Pak, Hackatao, XCOPY, Andrés Reisinger, and Hackatao.
