With this move, CryptoPunks has become the only popular NFT collection with zero secondary sale royalties attached to it.

Yuga Labs is known to be the mastermind behind the creation of the most valuable NFT collection around, the Bored Ape Yacht Club. In March, it completed the acquisition of both Crypto Punks and Meebits collections, Immediately granting holders the rights to commercialization of their NFTs.

The Announcement

With its latest move, it has only become clear that it is on the path to making both Crypto Punks and Meebits much more than just another NFT collection.

Keeping mum on its developmental plans for Meebits, while insisting that its 5% royalties will power its experimentations and building process only shows how grand upcoming announcements on Meebits could be. If there is one thing though, it will be that Yuga Labs always hold the masterstroke.
