NFT Data Provider to Sell CryptoPunk with Business Attached

By Robert Drage December 22, 2021 In Crypto Art, Crypto News, NFTs

Non-fungible token (NFT) data provider will be auctioning its CryptoPunk, with the buyer of the NFT finding business IP and all supporting assets attached.

On December 20, DegenData announced the January 1 auction of CryptoPunk #5761, and as a twist “the new owner of this Punk will have the rights to claim DegenData product and assets”.

The CryptoPunk will be auctioned for 420.69 ETH, or nearly US$1.7 million at the time of writing. This price is only a fraction of record-holding CryptoPunk #7523, which was auctioned for a record US$11.8 million by Sotheby’s in June.

According to the Twitter thread:


We see the lines of what NFTs are beginning to blur. Digital and physical worlds are intertwined now. NFTs aren’t just profile pictures. They are becoming the value of what you create around them. It is time for us to push the space to think more about what NFTs represent.

Why Sell the Platform?

DegenData (DGD) is owned by Pink Swan Trading, Inc (PST), which owns another brand and is developing another crypto analytics product called Genesis Volatility. The owners want to sell DGD and use the proceeds to further develop Genesis Volatility, since the team feels it can be pioneers in the nascent DeFi sector.

Our team feels strongly that we can be pioneers in crypto options analytics and pioneers in DeFi crypto options; for that reason we decided to sell DGD and use the proceeds to help build Genesis Volatility to its full potential, especially as we dig deeper into the DeFi world.
