CryptoPunks Recent NFT sale Breaks Record, Sold for 4,850 ETH or $16.4M

A landmark sale occurred in the realm of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the Ethereum blockchain, with one of CryptoPunks’ coveted Alien Punks fetching a record price.

On Wednesday, an undisclosed collector acquired CryptoPunks #7804 for a staggering 4,850 ETH, equivalent to $16.38 million.

This transaction now stands as the second-largest sale of a CryptoPunks NFT, both in terms of ETH and USD value, as per data from CryptoSlam. The highest-priced CryptoPunks sale remains that of NFT #5822, which transacted in February 2022 for 8,000 ETH, valued at $23.7 million.

Moreover, this recent sale eclipsed the previous benchmark set by the sale of Punk NFT #3100 earlier this month, which sold for 4,500 ETH or $16 million.

The individual who sold CryptoPunks #7804 shared on X (Twitter) that they initially purchased the NFT in 2021 for 4,200 ETH, which amounted to $7.57 million at that time. They revealed that they had been actively seeking a potential buyer for over a year.

Operating under the pseudonym Peruggia, the seller expressed on X that the sale signifies the “End of an era.”

“I’ve long felt like an imposter, holding punks—and potentially NFTs as a whole—hostage by not giving 7804 the recognition he deserves.”

CryptoPunks, launched in June 2017 by the Larva Labs studio, has garnered significant attention in the NFT space. The highest-priced NFT sale to date is associated with Beeple’s digital artwork collage titled “Everydays: The First 5000 Days,” which fetched an astonishing $69.3 million in March 2021 at Christie’s auction house.

Is the NFT Hype Back?

The NFT landscape has faced challenges in recent years, but the sale of CryptoPunk #7804 NFT signals a potential resurgence in the NFT market.

According to data from Statista, NFT sales volumes in 2023 lagged behind figures from 2022 and 2021. However, projections indicate that revenue in the NFT market is set to soar to US$2,378 million in 2024.

Statista also highlighted that the number of users in the NFT market is anticipated to reach 16.35 million by 2028.

While the market has experienced volatility, this recent notable sale could ignite renewed interest among investors in the NFT space. Moreover, it may serve as a catalyst for creators to embark on fresh projects, potentially fueling a broader resurgence in the NFT ecosystem.

What we write about

I want to save money. Will cryptocurrency work?

Cryptocurrency is essentially virtual money that operates in a decentralized manner, not through a bank but directly on multiple independent computers.

Every cryptocurrency has two main components: the units of digital exchange called “coins” and the network within which the exchange takes place. These units can be transferred between wallets and exchanged on exchanges. The networks in which these coins exist are called blockchains, which translates to “chains of blocks.”
