Dapp of the week: CryptoPunks



Before CryptoKitties, there were CryptoPunks.

Launched in the summer of 2017, the concept was simple.

Strictly 10,000 punky faces – each of which had a random number of attributes to make a 24×24 pixel image – were procedurally generated on the Ethereum blockchain and sold. 

Since then, a small but growing number of collectors – starting with tens but now over 50 daily active users – have sprung up, buying and selling these items.

In total, these 10,000 CryptoPunks are now distributed between 850 unique wallets and the average price per punk has risen to well over 1 ETH.

Of course, at the top end, the price of the most significant and rare CryptoPunks – such as the 88 zombies, the 24 apes, or 9 alien punks – is increasing very rapidly.

Looking at the value of the top 10 CryptoPunks, nine of them were traded in 2020 including 100 ETH ($21,000) for punk #6487, which has no attributes, and 85 ETH ($18,000) for punk #8348, which has seven different attributes.

And that’s the total value of CryptoPunks trading hit an all-time weekly high of $344,000 in late May.
