After several months, the cheapest-available Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT now costs more than the lowest-priced CryptoPunks NFT on the market.
As of now, the lowest Eth price for CryptoPunk listed for sale on creator Larva Labs’ was priced at 52.69 ETH, or just over $210,000.
At the same moment, the cheapest-available Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT on leading NFT marketplace OpenSea was 53.9 ETH, or about $217,000.
Celebrities have increasingly flocked to the Bored Ape Yacht Club, as well, with Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Curry, and Post Malone amongst the well-known buyers in recent months.
And since Yuga Labs lets Bored Ape owners commercialize their NFT images, Ape holders are being tapped for initiatives such as virtual bands backed by Timbaland and Universal Music.
