A few days ago, the first NFT, or “non-fungible token,” digital home was sold for 288 units of the cryptocurrency Ether (more than $500,000) on SuperRare, a marketplace for single-edition digital art. The piece, called Mars House, is an experience in augmented reality, a digitally enhanced version of a real home designed as a modern, glass-walled structure. A 3D tour of the house features a combination of sound and visual effects intended to create a feeling of calm and well-being. Krista Kim, the creator of Mars House, who came into the NFT space in 2020, describes her record-breaking sale as a demonstration of a near future where art will be displayed as virtual 3D pieces, sold in order to be projected in homes and outdoor spaces, or even made to float in the sky.
