Millionaire (and absurd) value achieved auction of this gif | Digital Trends Spanish



More than half a million dollars. This was the value that reached the auction of a remastered version Nyan cat, the popular gif of a cat with toast on its back.

The archive was released in April 2011 and, due to those surprises that from time to time social networks usually deliver, it acquired an unusual popularity.

In fact, a video based on this meme became the fifth most viewed on YouTube that same year.

In case you don’t know him, Nyan Cat is a gif of a cat with a toast with jam stuck to his back, which was created by the American Chris Torres, also known as Prguitarman.

It is a cat flying with the body of a cherry pop-tarts, leaving behind a rainbow trail behind it. The explanation is simple: as the toasts always fall on the side of the jam and the cats always land on their feet, they cancel each other out and Nyan Cat, unable to fall, remains flying in the air indefinitely.

According GizmodoTorres made a series of small tweaks to the gif and decided to put it up for sale at a crypto art auction. Where is this? The artistic piece receives a unique signature through the blockchain and then the payment is made in cryptocurrencies.

The cat gif was sold for 300 ether – the currency of the cryptocurrency Ethereum – which is equivalent to about $ 544,800.

“(Nyan Cat) opened the doors to the future of the meme economy in the crypto universe, no big deal. But seriously, thanks for believing in Nyan Cat all these years. I hope this inspires future artists to enter the #NFT universe so they can get proper recognition for their work! ”Stated Torres.
