Although humans have not yet stepped on the surface of Mars, a future dwelling on the red planet, called Mars House, which is the world’s first digital NFT-encoded virtual house (a non-exchangeable code), has been sold in exchange for Over $ 500,000.
According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, the hypothetical structure was sent as a 3D file to the buyer by creator Kirsten Kim, who said she designed this house during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Kim participates in the event with her NFT Mars House selling for $ 514,557.79, and the buyer receives 3D files for uploading to the Metaverse, a collective virtual shared space.
Furnished with tempered glass and fabric items, Mars House features a dining, sitting and sleeping area, along with a jetted pool.
Mars Digital Home
NFTs are similar to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum in that they are registered on the blockchain networks, which record the transactions of digital assets, but unlike traditional cryptocurrencies, NFTs are non-exchangeable, which means that one cannot be exchanged for another.
“I designed and created Mars House in May 2020, during the first wave of COVID-19 lockdowns,” revealed Kim, adding, adding that she has partnered with musician Jeff Schroeder of The Smashing Pumpkins to create a quiet musical accompaniment.
The Mars House is a large space surrounded by transparent glass walls, and throughout the house there are different areas, such as a place to eat, sit and sleep, all of which are divided from each other for more privacy.
The house also has a huge roof, with lighting fixtures indoors to light the house during the Martian evening hours, and Kim hopes Jupiter will plan the Martian home in his home on Earth.
