Just when people thought NFTs would be bearish over the month, someone just purchased at an unexpectedly high price amidst the declining sales.
On December 31, CryptoPunk #2066 was purchased for 1,155 ETH, which is around $1.3 million. The Punk has a rarity trait of Knitted Cap, which only 419 other punks have and it belongs to the Zombie category of the collection.
The new owner of this NFT is n0b0dy.eth, an ENS domain name of an NFT collector and private investor with over $10M worth of NFTs including Bored Ape, Mutant Apes, and CryptoPunks. He is also the backer of the Undeads Metaverse project.
Although the NFT market has seen a massive decline over the year due to the fall of crypto prices, investors are seeing it as an opportunity to grab their favorite art or PFP avatars.
CryptoPunks is an Ethereum-based collection of 10,000 NFTs designed in 8-bit art style, ranking among the best-selling projects in the world. It is one of the first collections that pioneered the PFP digital art.
Looks like NFT sales are beginning the epic year of 2023 by recording the highest sale of the month.
