Beeple will auction a physical NFT titled “HUMAN ONE” at Christie’s New York office on November 9. The auction will take place as part of Christie’s 21st Century Evening Sale, which features artists such as Damien Hirst, Banksy and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Bidding for Beeple’s work will start at $15 million.
“HUMAN ONE” is the first artwork by Beeple that combines both physical and digital elements. It is in the context of a new era of blockchain-based physical and digital art. Earlier this month, a similar tokenized sculpture by FEWOCiOUS sold for over $2 million at Sotheby’s.
Facebook Inc. announced Thursday that it has changed its company name to Meta — the first major rebranding in its history!

This year’s event focuses heavily on the Metaverse concept, brought to prevalence by blockchain technology and NFT projects!
The company intends to hire eight employees for three different positions. All positions are remote, but are located in four cities.
The job posting seeking a senior software engineer asks applicants to have “experience with NFT marketplaces,” suggesting GameStop plans to launch a full-fledged NFT marketplace.
