Justin Sun, founder of Tron (TRX) blockchain and CEO of BitTorrent (BTT), has officially confirmed that Femme Nue Couchee Au Collier by Pablo Picasso is successfully tokenized on Tron (TRX) platform.

Starting now, Femme Nue Couchee Au Collier will be permanently stored on the Tron (TRX) blockchain and in the BitTorrent File System (BTFS).

Thus, it is the first-ever masterpiece of Pablo Picasso that exists both in physical and digital forms. Since the TRC-721 token stores the information in smart contracts, its uniqueness is ensured by the contract creator.

As a result, malefactors will not be able to steal or corrupt this artwork by Picasso anymore.

JUST NFT will become an ARK of digital collectibles

As covered by U.Today previously, Tron founder Justin Sun has purchased the first batch of artwork for tokenization recently. It includes collectibles by digital artist Beeple as well as Andy Warhol's "Three Self-Portraits."
