The “Mars House” sold for 616,132 Canadian dollars, or just over 400,000 euros. However, its new owner will not be able to live there: this house is 100% virtual.

Lately, a house baptized « Mars House », created by artist Krista Kim, sold for a whopping $ 616,132 Canadian. This might not seem like much for a building of this type, featuring numerous windows offering breathtaking views of the mountains, chic decor and large living spaces. But the peculiarity of this mansion is that it does not exist, although it is described as being based in Toronto, Canada. It is a digital work, in this case, “The world’s first NFT digital home”.
@ARTofInternet is the new owner of Mars House and we will put the majority of proceeds to our Continuum Foundation, which will support a world tour of healing sound and light installations for mental health and healing. NFTs can do powerful social good by empowering artists. https://t.co/eJ5By9mWJ0
