Last Thursday, the artist Beeple sold the NFT artwork Everydays at auction for $69m — or ~42k ETH, to be exact.
Who is MetaKovan?
Independent journalist Amy Castor connected MetaKovan with the serial crypto-prenuer Vignesh Sundaresan — a claim Sundaresan denies.
- Co-founded Bitaccess, putting 1k bitcoin ATMs in 15+ countries
- Early investor in ETH, claims to have been “in the room” with the founder
- Founded Coins-e, a now-defunct Ontario-based crypto exchange
Castor made the connection between MetaKovan and Sundaresan after listening to 2 audio recordings of each speaking. (We listened, it’s uncanny.)
MetaKovan’s plans for NFTs raise ’brows
Metapurse, the crypto investment firm financed by MetaKovan, is being “stewarded” by Twobadour (yes, another mysterious alias). It’s basically an NFT holding company on a mission to democratize access to NFTs.
Hold on, it gets crypto-ier.
The tokens represent digital “keys” to Metapurse’s NFT portfolio and provide access to 3 virtual museums to view the NFTs. It’s like fungible-ing the non-fungible.
