A real frenzy seizes CryptoPunks
CryptoPunks are widely regarded as the pioneering project in the field of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), as they predate the creation of CryptoKitties and the ERC-721 standard.
In recent days, CryptoPunk sales have seen a real frenzy. Specifically, in the last 24 hours, the famous project has seen an increase in trading volume of over 600%.
A mysterious whale even bought over 100 Punks on Friday night at prices ranging from 24 to 29 Ethers (ETH) for a total of $ 6 million.
At the same time, Gary Vaynerchuk, US serial entrepreneur, bought the monkey-type CryptoPunk (# 2140) for 1,600 ETH or around $ 3.7 million. A sale followed a few hours later by the sale of another Punk Monkey (# 5217) for 2,250 ETH ($ 5.4 million). These sales are respectively the fourth and third largest in the history of CryptoPunks.
