- NFT hoarder “seedphrase” sold the CryptoPunk NFT.
- To date, punk #5822 has fetched the highest price for a CryptoPunk.
A million dollars was a common price tag for NFTs during the recent craze. It seemed that the brakes had been put to the market, since recent circumstances had remained turbulent. Despite this, one user paid 3300 ETH for a CryptoPunks NFT.
The latest shocking event is the $4.45 million sale of CryptoPunks 2924. It’s worth noting that this is one of NFT’s biggest-ever deals. NFT hoarder “seedphrase” parted with the CryptoPunk NFT. According to the NFT’s blockchain transaction history, it was last traded in November of 2020 for 150 ETH [$71,403 at the time].
Despite Sluggish NFT Market
To date, punk #5822 has fetched the highest price for a CryptoPunk. In February of this year, Deepak Thapliyal, CEO of Chain, paid almost $23 million for the alien-style punk. The price tag was far more than that of the next highest-earning punk by a wide margin. The deal almost broke the record for the biggest selling NFT ever, falling short by a few million.
Over the previous 24 hours, sales of CryptoPunk have increased by almost 348%. Therefore, at the time of publication, it was the best-selling compilation overall. Next to them was the Bored Ape Yacht Club, and then came the Mutant Ape Yacht Club. Approximately 13% and 52% daily sales increases were seen for the aforementioned collections.
The NFT market is still in its downturn phase, notwithstanding the sales recovery seen over the last day. Bloomberg reported data from Dune Analytics showing that, compared to January of this year, NFT trading volumes had dropped by 97%.
