A digital asset investor who goes by the handle Metakovan and
refuses to give his full name, announced that he is the buyer of
the record-breaking $69.3 million digital artwork that sold
Thursday. Christie’s auction house, which hosted the sale,
confirmed his statement, also declining to reveal his legal name.
Metakovan is the chief financier behind Metapurse, a crytpo-based
fund that acquires NFTs and other virtual properties; it claims to
be the largest NFT fund in the world.
So an investor in an NFT venture made sure an NFT auction made news headlines? I’ll gladly admit I don’t understand this entire NFT thing, but this seems like a publicity scam.
