Beeple: From selling NFTs to establishing an NFT platform 

Beeple, whose real name is Mike Winkelmann, has caught the world’s attention when he successfully sold his series of digital non-fungible tokens for an astounding $69 million. 

Now, the famous digital artist is all set to catapult his career even further by establishing an NFT platform called WENEW, which will now hold its first auction. 

WENEW’s first auction will feature a collection that Beeple calls “moments” which was made in collaboration with Andy Murray, a Wimbledon and Grand Slam champion.

Andy Murray’s NFT video clips

One of the NFTs that WENEW will auction is a video clip that shows Andy Murray’s exact moment when he won the Grand Slam tennis tournament in 2013. It was a historic moment because after 77 years of “champion drought”, the United Kingdom finally won in the male singles competition. 

Another interesting fact about the bidding is that the winning bidder would also have a chance to play tennis with Andy Murray.

On top of that, the highest bidder would also receive two tickets to Centre Court for the 2022 men’s Wimbledon finals, special souvenirs signed by Murray, and a VIP behind-the-scenes tour, making the bidding experience as rewarding as possible. 

More clips to choose from

The NFTs that will be offered in the auction come in packs of 20, 50, 100, and 500 which bidders can alternatively bid on. All these NFTs feature various moments of Murray which include his 2012 speech, best shots, victory interview, and even his trophy lift. 

Beeple said that WENEW is not just any other NFT bidding platform, it is a place where both bidders and featured artists are given a whole new experience with NFTs.
