NFT’s sales have been breaking records and making headlines for quite some time. This week, NFT’s bestsellers made even more headlines, thanks to an original buying story.
But more on that later! First, let’s take stock of the top 5 NFT sellers for the week ending 10/24/21.
The Bored Yacht Club took the top spot again, with a bargain of 697 ETH for # 8585. That’s a whopping $ 2.68 million traditional. Dankrupt was sold for 469 ETH or $ 1.93 million. CryptoPunk took the next three spots, with # 4992 priced at 450 ETH or $ 1.70 million and # 273, 265 ETH or $ 1.02 million.
The most headline-grabbing sale was not the spearhead of this NFT Top 5 of the Week pack. Instead, he brought up the rear.
We know what you are thinking. A self-made multimillionaire making a million dollar purchase is no longer the hottest news. But read on, and you’ll see why this incident takes the cake.
It all fell apart when Carl Runefelt aka The Moon Carl bought CryptoPunk # 4626 at 249 ETH or $ 1.02 million. Noticing that this particular NFT crypto art was surprisingly similar in its characteristics, Carl went ahead and dropped a million dollars.
It wasn’t until the purchase was complete that he realized that the CryptoPunk art he had just purchased was that of a woman!
Well, Carl being Carl, confidently held on to the purchase. And soon enough, the crypto investing guru’s eccentric deal started to garner a lot of attention.
With a market cap of $ 43.08 billion and weekly sales hovering between $ 10 million and $ 20 million, the global NFT market has exploded in recent months.
If current trends are any indication, be prepared for record numbers in the near future as well. And if we stick to Carl’s story, we might even witness some stranger events!
