Justin Sun, founder of Tron, has showed his continued interest in non-fungible tokens with the announcement of a JUST NFT Fund for artwork priced at least $1 million.
- The fund will only accept non-fungible token art pieces with a price tag of at least $1 million and will seek to have works with a median value of $10 million.
- JUST NFT’s first work will be the Ocean Front NFT artwork by Beeple, which Sun bought for $6 million on March 23.
- Sun has been particularly active in the NFT artwork space of late, beaten by MetaKovan to the purchase of the Beeple NFT listed by Christie’s earlier this month.
