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.
Listen to this fascinating podcast of Blockchain Gaming World hosted by Jon Jordan in which the buyer of the 1–1–1 is revealed and interviewed! Also featuring Yat Siu (co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands) and Alex Atallah (founder and CTO of OpenSea).
Or read the full, unabridged and uncensored chronicle written by the 1–1–1’s creator himself: Saga of the 1–1–1: solving the mystery of 2019’s most expensive NFT, by Ibrahim El-Mouelhy.
