Beeple Moments

Like all things Beeple, it is forecasted to be big and exciting.

WENEW

Along with Pitchfork's founder, Ryan Schreiber, Beeple created WENEW, a new platform that will sell iconic moments on the Ethereum blockchain. They are trying to revolutionize the NFT moment market by bringing moments in sports and moments in music, comedy, politics, and history. Maybe we can get a Beeple Champagne moment?

Along with the NFT, some of the moments will come with physical items. An example of this is WENEW's physical artifact. A physical artifact is a looping video of the moment on a screen encased in glass. Premium moments may include access to a once-in-a-lifetime item. This can range from one-on-one experiences to collectible memorabilia.

Building off the success of NBA Top Shot would make sense for Beeple to get into the NFT moment space. According to Crypto Slam, NBA Top Shot currently has the highest all-time sales volume out of any NFT project by a large margin.

Although it seems that WENEW is primarily focused on exclusive moments, TS has shown there is a market for this kind of NFT. 

For WENEW's first auction, they will be auctioning off a collection of different moments from Andy Murray's 2013 Wimbledon victory. The auction will start on July 2 and will last until July 5.

FIRST ROUND, ANDY MURRAY (GBR) D. BENJAMIN BECKER (GER) 6-4, 6-3, 6-2

Andy Murray shows his exquisite feel with an inch-perfect drop shot in the opening set of his 2013 campaign at Wimbledon. Comfortable straights set win.

SECOND ROUND, ANDY MURRAY D. YEN HSUN-LU (TPE) 6-3, 6-3, 7-5

Murray's famed retrieval skills are on full display as he digs out a forehand-down-the-line winner at full stretch. Comfortable straight sets win.

THIRD ROUND, ANDY MURRAY D. TOMMY ROBREDO (ESP) 6-2, 6-4, 7-5

Comfortable win for Murray against then-world No.29 Robredo. This cross-court backhand passing winner is one of Murray's trademark shots.

FOURTH ROUND, ANDY MURRAY D. MIKHAIL YOUZHNY (RUS) 6-4, 7-6(5), 6-1

The experienced Youzhny posed the sternest test of Murray's Wimbledon 2013 run to that point, particularly in a tight second set, but Murray ran away with the third, his dominance showcased by this massive down-the-line forehand winner which set up match point.

QUARTER-FINAL, ANDY MURRAY D. FERNANDO VERDASCO (ESP) 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5

One of the most memorable points of Murray's career, in a match where he came from two sets down to win for just the second time at Wimbledon. This point was perhaps the whole match in microcosm, as Murray withstood a barrage of Verdasco forehands to ultimately come out on top in a 28-shot rally with a topspin forehand passing winner.

SEMI-FINAL, ANDY MURRAY D. JERZY JANOWICZ (POL) 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3

Janowicz won the first set of this semi-final on a tie-break, but Murray ultimately prevailed in four sets. This pinball rally, finished up with an improvised overhead winner from Murray, came in the final throes of the fourth set, with Murray holding serve in this game before breaking to reach a second straight Wimbledon Final.

This new project by Beeple and Ryan Schreiber could be significant for the NFT space. It shows there's a growing community around moments, and if they can bring big-name celebrities into the moment's space, it will surely get bigger.
