British auction house Christie’s is hosting a sale from February 25 to March 11 during which it will sell the work of popular digital artist Beeple, according to an announcement published Tuesday. 

Beeple has been creating a new work of art every single day since May 2007, creating 5,000 new pieces since then. According to the announcement, the collection of art, titled “Everydays: The First 5000 Days,” is being called “one of the most unique bodies of work to emerge in the history of digital art.”

The sale will be hosted on a standalone lot, marking the first time Beeple’s work will be sold at a major auction house. It will also mark the first time non-fungible token (NFT) art is sold at an auction house. The sale is a result of a partnership with NFT marketplace MakersPlace.

“Christie’s has never offered a new media artwork of this scale or importance before,” said Post-War and Contemporary Art Specialist Noah Davis. “Acquiring Beeple’s work is a unique opportunity to own an entry in the blockchain itself created by one of the world’s leading digital artists.”

The sale will start on February 25, with bidding to open at $100.
