Title of News: A digital ‘dress’ sold for $9,500

Dutch startup The Fabricant, Dapper Labs and artist Johanna Jaskowska recently sold a digital dress, Iridescence, for $9,500 on the blockchain. It’s not like buying a costume in a video game — the creators will ‘tailor’ it for you based on a photo, and its nature as a blockchain asset both makes it unique and gives it value like cryptocurrency. It’s also based on 2D patterns used for conventional clothes, so you could theoretically create a real life equivalent(1).
