A Teenager Built An NFT Collection In 2020 That's Valued At More Than $26 Million Today

Artist Victor LAnglous cannot wait to see what the future has in store for NFT's after 11 months in which he sold over 3,000 NFTs and crashed Christie's auction house website.

Victor Langlois was selling stickers and prints through his Twitter represent $5 each. Barely a year after the fact, he’s overwhelming the advanced craftsmanship world. The Seattle-based craftsman, referred to online as FEWOCiOUS, has consistently tracked down shelter in his work, yet he says his family didn’t urge him to seek after a vocation in workmanship.

Presently, among essential and optional deals, his NFT workmanship is esteemed at more than $26 million NFT workmanship is esteemed at more than $26 million, as indicated by the site cryptoart, which tracks the absolute exchange worth of each NFT made by a craftsman.

Langlois began making craftsmanship at 13 years old and became hopelessly enamored with painting at an early age. Following quite a while of offering his work to colleagues on Twitter for only a couple of dollars, in late 2020 he chose to take a risk and up his desires, and he put his compositions and prints available to be purchased on Twitter at a more exorbitant cost.


“One of the items I had on there was one of my very first artistic creations, which was recorded for $90. I was so apprehensive putting the $90 sticker price,” he said. “[B]ut I trusted perhaps one day somebody would get it.”

It required a couple of months, yet in mid 2021, Langlois at long last made his first enormous deal when a passing authority on Twitter communicated his appreciation for Langlois’ style, regularly portraying energetic and bright imaginings of dreamlike figures, and put in the required $90 bid. The authority was keen on buying a greater amount of Langlois’ work however mentioned it in an organization the youthful craftsman was new to at that point: an NFT.

NFTs appear to be wherever at this moment, however back in the early long periods of 2021 a lot more modest gathering knew about the idea.

Instructions to make and sell an NFT


To make and sell advanced craftsmanship, specialists like Langlois need to pursue online NFT commercial centers where clients can offer on various NFTs utilizing digital currency. These incorporate sites like SuperRare, OpenSea, and Rarible.


SuperRare, for example, is based on a blockchain run by Ethereum, one of the more normal cryptographic forms of money that most craftsmen and authorities use. Seeking NFT craftsmen need to purchase and possess some Ethereum themselves to distribute their NFTs, since transferring to commercial centers like SuperRare brings about a “gas expense,” essentially a level charge paid to the commercial center for the fuel and power expected to drive the blockchain exchange. Different commercial centers, like OpenSea and Rarible, don’t charge gas expenses however will generally take a little rate charge for each NFT deal. Since his first experience with that NFT-enthused authority, Langlois’ star hasn’t quit rising. In June, a portion of his NFTs were to be set available to be purchased online at Christie’s, and the sale house’s site was so overpowered with interest, it accomplished something uncommon: It crashed.


Purchasers and offers started flooding the sale house’s site at the same time, prompting Christie’s dropping the closeout and rescheduling for two days after the fact. FEWOCiOUS had turned into an easily recognized name in the NFT universe, enough so Fortune put him at No. 14 in last year’s NFTy 50, a positioning of the world’s 50 most powerful individuals in the NFT scene.

Eventual fate of NFT craftsmanship and “an extended time of investigation”

For the time being, Langlois is anticipating investigating the NFT world and his craft. He said he can’t hold on to see what further innovative headways in the NFT space will mean for creatives like himself. It’s hazy on the off chance that NFTs will keep on having such a gigantic draw and impact on the craftsmanship world, however numerous specialists believe the innovation to be progressive, and despite the fact that it started out in workmanship, the possible utilizations of NFTs are in a real sense unbelievable.


Langlois is energized for 2022, considering it a “extended time of investigation.” He is anticipating more individuals exploring different avenues regarding NFTs and finding every one of the various ways the innovation can be used. “Interestingly, specialists around me are getting compensated for their advanced fine arts, and I’m eager to see what they make with additional assets. New Renaissance.”
