Yes, you heard that right. Mona Lisa, one of the world’s famous portrait paintings by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci, got its non-fungible token (NFT) on OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace.
NFT’s official Instagram page announced that Monas is on OpenSea. In addition, they are a collection of 5,000 unique, programmatically generated NFT collectibles. According to NFT, these collectibles are “a representation of internet culture today mixed with classical art.”
Moreover, the firm mentioned that the 27th Mona was listed for $450k and the 85th Mona, which is one of the rarest Mona collectibles, was listed for $250k.
Also, NFT mentioned that there are still many available for only .05 ETH. And investors can still get their hands on them before they are all gone.
For instance, it’s been a wild 2021 for the NFT auction marketplace OpenSea. The startup was very well placed in a niche space when NFTs exploded earlier this year. Since then, the startup has found its user base growing. The total volume of trades is skyrocketing, and more investor dollars are being flung at them.
The peer-to-peer marketplace for NFTs announced it had sealed a $23 million Series A in March. In addition to that (4 months later), the company said it had raised another $100 million in a Series B round led by Andreessen Horowitz at a $1.5 billion estimate.
