BTC PEERS earlier reported that CryptoPunks dominated the NFT marketplace, closely trailing NBA Top Shot. The collection of 10,000 unique-character NFTs has been the rave of the moment, with investors throwing huge sums at these 24×24 pixel “punky-looking” art images.
CryptoPunk #7804 is an alien and just one of nine similar art pieces in the collection of 10,000. Its unique features such as its pipe, cap, and shades are shared by a few other CryptoPunks.
The NFT was put up for sale on February 27 for 4,200 ETH. At that time, it was worth around $6 million. After several lower bids, the digitalized token finally sold for its original price. The recent sale displaces other previous record-holders featuring CryptoPunk apes and zombies.
Meanwhile, data on CryptoSlam shows that CryptoPunks have surpassed NBA Top Shot.
