SOTHEBY’S IN THE METAVERSE

Although the sale was on online auction, the works were displayed on screens in Sotheby’s exhibitions in New York, London and Hong Kong.

Sotheby’s also opened its first ever virtual gallery: a replica of its real-world building on New Bond Street in London, in the online virtual world Decentraland.

Decentraland is a blockchain-based virtual world, in which users can walk around with friends, visit buildings, go to events and display their NFT artwork collections.

Perfect and Priceless: Value Systems on the Blockchain,” an exhibition of digital art at Kate Vass Galerie in Zurich, Switzerland that Bak says included very early blockchain art works from several noted artists, including Ai Wei Wei, featured nine CryptoPunk prints.

The prints came about, Bak says, after he approached Hall and Watkinson about the exhibition and they discussed how to show them. “They came up with this amazing idea of conceptual art work” by creating ‘phygital’ artworks—part physical, part digital, he recalls.

Hall and Watkinson transferred punks from their own collection to separate wallets, made a unique signed and numbered “one of one” print of each, Bak says.

Posvar’s dedication to the process is evident in three papers he wrote explaining the why and how of creating ExpansionPunks:

  • Punk Quadrants: A Visual Construct for AltPunk NFT Avatar Classification.
  • A More Diverse and Inclusive Punkverse: Bringing Balance to CryptoPunks with ExpansionPunks
  • Creating a 10k NFT Avatar Collection: ExpansionPunks Step-by-Step

The ExpansionPunks website features a PunkExplorer tool for the original collection and the expanded set where users can dive deep into the many traits of the 20,000 characters in each, filtering for such things as facial hair, skin blemishes, eye shape, hair style and more.

Each ExpansionPunk also has a page of its own which shows the difference between it and the original CryptoPunks.

Originally, each CryptoPunk was offered for free, but many have sold recently for millions of dollars.

Two other “alien punks” recently sold for more than $7.5 million each, according to CryptoSlam, and seven other CryptoPunks sold for over $1 million. In May, a collection of nine CryptoPunks sold for nearly $17 million at Christie’s.

“CryptoPunks have become among the most sought-after NFTs on the market,” Michael Bouhanna, contemporary art specialist at Sotheby’s, previously told CNBC Make It.

Prior to the sale, an NFT collector known under the pseudonym Sillytuna owned CryptoPunk 7523.

The last public sale of CryptoPunk 7523 was in 2017 for 8 ether, which was then worth $1,646.

En el momento del lanzamiento, en abril de 2021, sus creadores vendían los NFT por 190 dólares cada uno.

BAYC, entre cuyos propietarios se encuentra el jugador de la NBA Stephen Curry y el presentador Jimmy Fallon, es lo que se llama una “colección de fotos de perfil”. El objetivo principal de las imágenes es que se utilicen como avatar en Discord, donde se desarrollan la mayoría de los negocios de NFT, o en Twitter, Instagram o cualquier otro lugar, incluso en Slack.

Sí, hay gente que paga 200.000 dólares por tener una foto de perfil de un simio dibujado.

Aisladamente, es una locura. Pero si lo situamos en un espectro de cómo gastan el dinero los multimillonarios, resulta menos asombroso.

London punk era, although there are also aliens, apes, and zombies. The accessories can include earrings, cigarettes, hot lipstick, and a “peak spike” hair style.

To Bak, the Larva Labs founders are “maybe even the most important artists alive,” because what they’ve done, through CryptoPunks and other projects, such the Meetbits (20,000 unique 3-D characters), “is a big revolution….they created something that was completely new.”

The five punks being sold are #6347, a female punk with red ‘crazy’ hair, green eyeshadow, black lipstick, and a cigarette; #872, a female punk with ‘wild blonde’ hair, ‘hot’ lipstick, and a vape; #2830, a male punk with a peak spike, classic shades, an earring, and a cigarette; #770, a male punk with red ‘crazy’ hair, regular shades, and a “luxurious” beard; and #1819, a male punk with a police cap, class shades, an earring and a “big” beard.

Initially, most Punks sold for the equivalent of just a few dollars in ether. As time went on, they started to go up in value, but not by much.

Every now and then, one would sell for over $100 in ether. Back in 2017, a rare variety of Punk, like a knitted-cap wearing alien, went for over $2,000.

It wasn’t until very recently that Punks started trading for eye-popping amounts of ether.

To date, the CryptoPunks platform has seen more than $300 million worth of cryptocurrency in sales, according to CryptoSlam, a site that monitors NFTs. But bidders should know that the vast majority of big-money trades has occurred only in the past few months.

NFTs started to pump in September, as 2020’s so-called “DeFi summer” began to cool down.

Natively Digital,” Sotheby’s also just announced that the auction house would launch the first auction to additionally include physical prints of the CryptoPunks; the online sale will take place between June 24th and July 1st.

    They can only wear lipstick,” Posvar said. “What kind of statement does that make for our daughters?”

    It was hard for Posvar to understand at first that this seminal NFT collection, which represents the history and early days of NFTs, might not speak to his own kids.

    So he quickly reverse engineered a few CryptoPunks canvases to make female versions that his daughters could appreciate. Then he turned his attention to the more sought-after zombies, apes and aliens — all of which have male-style faces in the original collection.

    He built female versions for each of those 121 total characters.

    “And after that I was like, shoot, if I want to do that, I might as well make all the skin tones and make an entire population of 10,000,” Posvar said.
