Unique Pepe, Beeple and XCOPY artworks most valuable NFT sales last week
Three single edition, unique 1/1 NFT artworks claimed the top spots in the DappRadar Top 10 NFT Sales from last week. An NFT commemorating the first appearance of Pepe the Frog sold for $3.53 million, followed by an artwork from digital artists Beeple and XCOPY.
The two biggest NFT acquisitions from last week ended up in the same wallet. The Starry Night Capital investment group bought both the $3.53 million Pepe NFT artwork and the $2.42 million NFT collaboration between TIME Magazine and Beeple. Last week they also bought Flood, an artwork by Hackatao and an early NFT artwork by Robbie Barrat. Earlier they acquired artworks from Dmitri Cherniak. They’ve spent over $16 million worth on NFT artworks, ranging from Rare Pepe NFTs to Art Blocks, and from SuperRare artworks to CrypToadz.
It’s no surprise that Starry Night Capital has 6 CrypToadz NFTs in their collection. The pixelated on-chain frogs have become very valuable, especially when the creators added their works to the public domain. This week two CrypToadz NFT changed hands for $1.51 million and $1.09 million.
Starry Night’s good sense for value can also be emphasized by the XCOPY artworks in their collection. Another XCOPY piece sold for $1.76 million this week, once again placing the artist in the spotlight.
