grimes has sold USD $6 million worth of digital artworks as NFTs. the self-described crypto queen auctioned her WarNymph digital collection featuring a total of 10 artworks created in collaboration with her brother mac boucher on a platform named nifty gateway.
‘grimes is a creative in the truest sense of the word,’ said nifty gateway. ‘her music career has been filled with genre bending albums that she writes, sings, and produces . the creativity doesn’t end with music, she directs her own music videos too. this past year, grimes put a piece of her soul up for sale, and developed her ‘WarNymph’ avatar, a completely digital version of herself. this collection is a collaboration between grimes and her creative partner mac boucher. we could not be prouder to showcase their debut NFT collection!’
️The “War Nymph” collection is dropping tomorrow, February 28 @ 2pm EST.

quickly gaining traction, NFTs (non fungible tokens) are described by forbes as ‘an entry on a blockchain… but unlike most bitcoin–which is fungible, meaning that one coin is essentially indistinguishable from another and equivalent in value–tokens on these blockchains are non-fungible. that means they are unique, so they can represent one-of-a-kind things, like a rare william shatner headshot or even the title to a piece of real estate.’

some digital artworks in the WarNymph collection by grimes were accompanied by exclusive music created by the artist herself: ‘earth’ features the unreleased Ærythe, ‘mars’ has its own mars theme, and ‘death of the old’ carries a demo of anhedonia. the collection was divided into seven limited editions and two open editions — ‘earth’ and ‘mars’ which sold around 700 copies for USD $7,500 each.
grimes said a percentage of the proceeds from the NFT sales will go to carbon180, a NGO dedicated to reducing carbon emissions.
