Whitney Houston’s legacy will forever be timeless, even in the world of technology. Earlier this month, non-fungible token (NFT) green marketplace OneOf announced that a rare full-length demo sung by the legend at age 17 would be auctioned off. Now, that item has become the highest sold NFT on the Tezos blockchain selling for nearly $1 million, Billboard reports. “Whitney is an icon for the ages,” OneOf co-founder Joshua James said. “We couldn’t be more excited to be releasing this historical song from the very beginning of her journey as an artist.” The winner of the auction, which ended yesterday (Dec.14), can not only revel in exclusive access to Houston’s recording, but the lucky individual also received digital artwork and videos crafted by 17-year-old photographer and curator Diana Sinclair.
