Popular digital artist Beeple's 5,000-day collection has sold for a hammer price of $60.25 million dollars, making it one of the highest art auction sales ever.

Christie's website shows that the auction concluded with a $9 million premium, which is a percentage of the final (or "hammer") price, bringing the total to more than $69 million.

The sale, hosted by British auction house Christie's, received a total of 353 bids

The collection of 5,000 pieces titled Everydays: The First 5000 Days, has been called "one of the most unique bodies of work to emerge in the history of digital art."

To create the collection, Beeple produced a new work of art every single day for 14 years, starting in May 2007. 

The auction, the result of a partnership between Christie's and NFT marketplace MakersPlace, marks the first time non-fungible token (NFT) art has been sold at an auction house.
