An auction of signed, limited edition MF Doom augmented reality non-fungible token (NFTs) began today at 4:00 PM PST and will conclude on Friday, March 12, 2021, at 10:00 PM PST.
The auction is being conducted on Illust Space – an augmented reality NFT marketplace – in cooperation with Rhymesayers, MF DOOM’s wife Jasmine and the late MC’s estate.
The masks are estimated to be worth between 10 to 50 eth ($15,000-$75,000).
Ten percent of total sales will go to MF DOOM’s estate in the form of royalties along with an individualized donation from the current holders of the masks. Proceeds will support the family as well as future creative projects.
In addition to his game-changing output of work, DOOM (real name: Daniel Dumile) was known for his signature metal mask and supervillain stage persona.
According to a statement, Doom’s art will be available for fans to purchase:
MF DOOM died on October 31, 2020, one day following the close of the original Illust Space beta auction making this one of MF DOOM’s final collaborations. Due to blockchain’s immutable and decentralized ledger technology, all of MF DOOM’s AR NFT collection will be available for future generations of fans and collectors, creating a new model for royalties and posthumous creative control legacies.
