$1.1m ‘Golden Ape’ sale caps off record-breaking week for Doodles

The 296 ETH purchase marks the highest ever price paid for a Doodle NFT

A $1.1m sale for an extremely rare ‘Gold Ape’ NFT from Doodles has rounded off a stellar week of record-breaking sales and volume for the colourful collection.

The 296.69 ETH sale marks the highest ever purchase of a Doodles NFT and was made by popular NFT collector ‘Pranksy’, who now owns 66 pieces from the pastel-coloured collection.

The ‘Gold Ape‘ is a true 1/1 – an NFT that is one of a kind in design and traits – and explains the high price tag and demand for such an NFT. Doodle #6914 was sold just 40 minutes after it was listed for sale.

It follows a week of record-breaking sales that have trumped each other at every step.

Doodles started to pick up steam when two ‘aliens’, #7751 and #3954,  were bought for 200 ETH and 150 ETH over the past two days.

The highest recent sales behind the 296 ETh ‘Gold Ape’ sale

A collection of other sales including three other ‘Apes‘, a ‘Skelly’ and a ‘Cat‘ rounded off the successful week.

Despite their recent popularity and impressive price action, Doodles have remained a favourite in the NFT space since their launch thanks to their attractive artwork, strong community ‘vibes’ and active founders.

Describing itself as a “community-driven” collection, Doodles are the creation of NFT veteran Evan Keast and Scott Martin, the Canadian–based illustrator behind the creative style behind the collection – Burnt Toast.

Now, following a new year spike in interest and volume in NFTs, Doodles have seemingly captured a majority of the volume from established collectors looking for the ‘next’ Bored Ape or Cool Cats.
