On October 17, a five-piece digital art collection of Batman sold for 540 ETH (about $200,000) on NFT marketplace Makersplace. The most expensive of the five pieces was Genesis, selling for 302 ETH ($113,000), and was created by artists Trevor Jones and José Delbo. Jones said he first received the sketch from Delbo and reproduced it with oil on a blank canvas to create a "painterly piece" with visible brush marks and a nostalgic feel of the 1980’s Batman superhero comic book.
