Digital Zones has joined the queue of emerging NFT projects that are currently earning the interest of crypto practitioners in the industry. The project, fully dubbed Digital Zones of Immaterial Pictorial Sensibility, is a limited edition NFT issued by artist Mitchell F. Chan.

A recent tweet from the founder of TRON, Justin Sun, reveals that the crypto veteran has just acquired three Digital Zones editions for about $2 million.
