Immediately there was an overflow of excitement on the discord server and pouring into Twitter. The listing price was just short of a million and many speculated that it would break the sales record of a single NFT currently held by Beeple, but ended up selling for 605ETH.
Of course, we are looking for a pat on the back for predicting a quick sale.
One of 9 extremely rare alien punks has been offered for sale for 825 ETH! If sold it will break the highest NFT sales record in terms of dollars!— Redlioneye.eth (@redlioneye13) January 23, 2021
Prediction: will be sold in the next 48 hrs! pic.twitter.com/lVc70JA6HI
The news started breaking out, so the offers started coming in.
And it was sold at the same day! Felt a bit rushed and also he could possibly get way more or maybe reach his original price.
The seller was the discord user SethS and the buyer is FlamingoDAO.
It is very fitting actually to see that the alien has found a new home on a DAO.
There are only 9 punk aliens in existence
Is this the equivalent of BTC pizza on cryptopunks?
The bids on the rest of the aliens now are going strong. News of this sale made waves fast, even cointelegraph wrote a really mediocre article about it.
