Have some Ether handy
Once you’ve chosen your digital asset, it’s time to get some Ether.
You can make NFTs on a bunch of different blockchains, but for the sake of simplicity, we’ll consider you’re going to use Ethereum. That’s the most popular one, and the most prominent NFT marketplaces support it. 
Minting an NFT could cost money. Therefore you will need an Ethereum wallet with some Ether (the cryptocurrency based on Ethereum) on it. The price requested to create the NFT is highly volatile. Have at least 100$ worth of Ether, but be aware that the minting process could cost you even more, based on the daily operational price.

If you’ll mint your NFT on OpenSea, though, the process is free because of the type of token the platform will create, but you still have to connect a wallet to create an account.

Everydays: The First 5000 Days: $69.3 Million

The record for the most expensive NFT ever sold (and one of the most expensive artworks ever sold) goes to EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS. The artwork, created by famed digital artist Mike “Beeple” Winkelmann, sold for $69.3 million at Christie’s—the first time that the venerable auction house has ever sold a purely digital artwork.

The NFT represents a collage of 5,000 of Beeple’s earlier artworks, demonstrating his development as an artist over the course of his career.

One of just nine “alien” CryptoPunks, it also sports three accessories, a forward cap and shades, and a pipe (indeed, it’s the only alien CryptoPunk to have a pipe or a forward cap)

CROSSROAD: $6.66 Million

CROSSROAD is an NFT created by acclaimed digital artist Beeple. It features anti-Trump messaging, and an enlarged Donald Trump-like figure laying in a defeated heap with profanities written across his naked body. It didn’t always look like that, though; the artwork was designed to change based on the outcome of the 2020 election. Had Trump won, it would’ve depicted him wearing a crown and striding through flames.
