2014: The Creation of the First NFT

In May 2014, a digital artist called Kevin McCoy created the first NFT called “Quantum.”

It was minted before anyone was really paying attention to NFTs. Quantum is a pixelated image of an octagon filled with circles, arcs, and shapes that pulse in a hypnotic way. In November 2021, this first-ever NFT was sold for over $1.4 million.
