Damien Hirst’s innovative and bold vision has made him one of the world’s most commercially successful artists. Hirst has always pushed the boundaries — one of his most famous works features a shark encased in formaldehyde. With his project, The Currency, Hirst brings his unorthodox approach to NFTs. Each of the 10,000 unique NFTs are linked to a physical piece of Hirst’s art. In July 2022, owners must choose whether to trade in their NFT for the corresponding art… or keep the NFT and have the tangible piece destroyed. #HIRST1 is a part of The Currency collection titled “Who’s Really King.”
“Damien Hirst’s ‘The Currency’ questions everything you thought you knew about art and money”— Fast Company | July 2021
Damien Hirst is born.
With his work “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living,” Hirst begins his journey as one of the world’s most commercially successful artists.
On the same day that Lehman Brothers files for bankruptcy, which would become a seminal moment of the subprime mortgage crisis, Sotheby’s holds an auction of 223 works of Hirst’s. The auction is titled “Beautiful Inside My Head Forever” and grosses over $200 million over the course of 24 hours. This breaks the record for a one-artist auction.
Hirst begins creating the 10,000 physical versions of the works of art that correspond to The Currency NFTs.
The Sunday Times names Damien Hirst the UK’s richest living artist, with a net worth of $384M.
Hirst announces he will accept Bitcoin or Ethereum as payment for a release of a print-run of eight paintings.
Hirst launches The Currency, accepting applications to mint the NFTs. The waitlist is oversubscribed by more than six times.
#HIRST1 is minted.
#HIRST1 is sold for 3.25 ETH ($10,296.78).
#HIRST1 is sold for 4.99 ETH ($18,513.30).
Rally enters into an agreement to acquire #HIRST1 and offer it on the Rally platform.
Hirst believes that The Currency “challenges the concept of value through money and art” by forcing people to grapple with “their perception of value, and how it influences their decision.”Invest Now
