This block of updates from today’s Modern Finance newsletter on recent activity around NFTs blew me away.
Here are some fun NFT stats from the last few days:
- @artblocks_io has done 5,570E ($13M) in the last 24hrs, up 401%, primarily driven by @tylerxhobbs Fidenza project
- Two CryptoPunk zombies purchased for 700 & 850 ETH ($1.72M & $2.09M). The next available zombie is 1.23KE or $3.71M. There are only 88 zombies in total
- Gary Vee buys rare CryptoPunk Ape for 1,600 ETH ($3,764,576.17 USD), this triggers a CryptoPunk buying frenzy
- I picked up a badass a 1/1 XCOPY (🏆 grail for me)
I continue to see a lot of potential for NFTs, well beyond just the collectible space. However, it seems that the collectibles are a huge deal on their own.
