It’s another interesting week in NFT highlights, so keep reading to know more about it.
CryptoDickButts see increased activity over Elon Musk’s tweet
In what appeared to be an as-yet-expected week in the NFT space, last Sunday, Elon Musk brought surprises to the market. Intentionally or not, Twitter’s new owner often has influence in the crypto world through his comic tweets and ironic opinions.
While on Saturday the CryptoDickButts collection had a timid volume increase of 4.54 ETH, after Elon’s tweet, the collection ended the week with a 252.93 ETH increase – 2161%.
At the time of writing, the collection’s floor price stood at 2.68 ETH ($4,226), and total volume had already reached 11,000 ETH ($17,346,450).
Dogecoin and Baby Dodge Swap are other Web3 projects that have also benefited from Elon Musk’s tweets indirectly in the past, showing the power of the community’s mass actions.
CryptoPunks & Bored Ape reach a $1 billion market cap
It’s also been a good week for blue-chip NFT investors. Giants CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) saw their market cap back to more than $1 billion.
Also this week, the sudden 12% increase in the value of ETH led to a corresponding increase in the value of NFTs built on the Ethereum blockchain and, consequently a surge in trading volume for high-value NFT collections like Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and CryptoPunks.
BAYC and MAYC NFTs saw their trading volume increase by 100% during those days, meaning collectors were taking advantage of the sudden appreciation to sell for ETH.
