That said, the world of NFTs is also sometimes a weird place because some really weird creations have been sold over the past year.

Adding to the list of bizarre announcements and sales, a 21-year-old art student has put up a very unusual item for potential buyers on the OpenSea NFT marketplace, according to reports.

Stijn van Schaik, a student at The Hague Art Academy, is said to have “sold his soul” as NFT. Well it’s not actually possible to digitize your soul, but the artist is gone viral for the weird list.

Schaik from the Netherlands uploaded an article called “Soil of Stinus” on OpenSea. It would be ready to be uploaded to the blockchain before being sold to the highest bidder.

“Hello person, you are currently looking at a soul. For now, it’s mine. Once it’s fully uploaded to the blockchain, who knows what will happen. What does that mean for a soul to be decentralized? Let’s find out,” Schaik wrote.

The 21-year-old also created a website containing a contract stipulating permitted uses of the soul.

“Examples of uses of the Soul that would be permitted under these terms include (but are not limited to): … Sacrificing or offering said Soul, in whole or in part, to any deity or spiritual entity” , he wrote.

However, there is a “soul sale agreement” which stipulates the terms of sale.

A report states that the highest bid on the NFT Soul was 0.11 ETH ($378).
