  • The owner of the non-forgeable token (NFT) CryptoPunk #6046 has rejected an offer of 2,500 ETH (about $9.5 million) for its NFT. If it had sold, it would have been CryptoPunk’s largest sale ever in terms of dollar amount.

    Bidders on the Larva Labs marketplace under the name poap.eth made their bid 15 hours after CryptoPunk’s owner (who goes by Richerd) tweeted.” My punk is not for sale. Don’t care what anyone offers me.” His punk has rare features such as 3D glasses (3% of CryptoPunks have this feature), a cigarette in his mouth (10%) and “scruffy” hair (4%).
