Wout van Aert has sold three of his biggest victories as non-fungible tokens (NFT) for a total of €47,000 following an online auction that concluded on Tuesday. 

The three NFTs feature animated images of the Belgian's wins up Mont Ventoux and on the Champs-Élysées at this year's Tour de France, as well as his 2020 Strade Bianche victory. An NFT is a digital certificate of ownership via blockchain, the same technology used in Bitcoin.
