A digital work of art has sold at auction for nearly $70 million and become the first ever sale by a major auction house of a work that doesn’t physically exist.

The work, entitled “Everydays — the First 5000 Days”, was made by the relatively unknown American artist known as Beeple.

Its starting price was just $100 but a record 22 million people watched online as it reached its astonishing selling price, making Beeple’s work among the most valuable among living artists.
