Justin Sun, the founder and CEO of TRON, announced today that he had placed the winning bid on one of TIME’s non-fungible tokens. On March 22, TIME Magazine declared a series of three NFTs themed around its 1966 “Is God Dead?” cover. In the days that ensued, the magazine auctioneered six more covers. However, the original covers were once in mass production. Each tokenized digital version is a one-of-a-kind collectible.
Sun acquired the NFT token corresponding to the cover of TIME’s April 2, 1965 edition, titled “The Computer in Society,” and is drawn by Boris Artzybasheff. Moreover, Sun paid over $2,00,000 in ETH for the item when its auction concluded on Wednesday. TIME developed its NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain via Superrare.
