An original Banksy artwork burned by a group of crypto-savvy artists has sold for 228.69 ETH, or roughly $380,000 at purchase.

The group behind the statement on non-fungible tokens (NFTs) accepted the offer Sunday afternoon Eastern time. The OpenSea sale comes just days after the group physically burned the artwork in a Brooklyn park. An unnamed source told CoinDesk earlier this week that the artists bought the piece for roughly $100,000.

Injective Protocol is the firm behind the Banksy buy. Spokesman Mirza Uddin said the group is still deciding on which charity will receive the proceeds from the NFT sale, though he did say it will be COVID-focused.

“We’re already planning our next event in collaboration with a prominent artist,” Uddin told CoinDesk. “Our aim is to bridge the world of traditional art with the world of NFTs. So, we’ll definitely be doing more to uphold this ethos.”
