The buyer – infamous NFT collector ‘9x9x9‘ – purchased the 21 CryptoPunks through an NFT aggregation service called Gem.xyz, which allowed them to save on gas fees and complete the purchase of multiple CryptoPunks in one transaction.
Following the purchase, 9x9x9 took to Twitter and said that his purchase was a “DCA in Punks” – implying that they plan to ‘dollar-cost average‘ into the collection over time and add to their already 47-strong collection of Punks.
Despite struggling in recent months to match the popularity of newer NFT projects such as Bored Ape Yacht Club and Doodles, today’s $4.4m ‘sweep’ now follows a record-breaking $10m purchase in December and a $2.9m ‘Zombie’ Punk purchase from MoonPay earlier this month.
