Solving the mystery of who bought 2019’s most expensive NFT: the 1–1–1

In 2019, Animoca Brands made history by selling a non-fungible token (NFT) called the 1–1–1, the first digital car for the officially licensed blockchain game F1® Delta Time. The winning bid of well over US$100,000 made it the most expensive NFT sold in 2019, one of the highest priced game-based virtual assets, the priciest virtual car in history, and the highest sum ever paid for a branded game NFT. Now, nearly a year and a half later, the buyer of the 1–1–1 is finally revealed.
