Here is a pixelated avatar that was bought for $ 23.7 million with borrowed funds through the Compound DeFi protocol (that’s about 8,000 Ethereum. The buyer was Chain CEO Deepak Thapliyal), this has broken the previous record for a CryptoPunk sale (the previous was which fetched $11.75 million), this makes it the most expensive CryptoPunk, and one of the world’s most valuable NFTs.
I get that as [NFTs]( draw more attention, they increase in value just like the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collections.
But how much would you give for an avatar like this?

I wouldn’t buy this even if I didn’t knew what to do with my money anymore
This whole NFT craze becomes more and more surreal.
I would literally have a money bonfire before I bought this
I could use that image as an avatar for free if I wanted, yet I still won’t, so I guess the actual question is how much would someone need to pay me so I set that as my avatar
Maybe 99 cents lol.
Looks free to me.
About tree fiddy
He didn’t buy anything. He moved ethereum from one wallet to another in order to pump hype and scam retail.
doesn’t count when rich folks buy it from each other to launder money
I wouldn’t even dl that for free.
Worst thing is the person buying it doesn’t even own the image.
Bout’ three fiddy
I don’t get that high value, but it is a free market, so my opinion doesn’t matter.
My pre schooler brings home better art pieces than that
Guess it’s time to put her to work making NFTs
I like. The concept of nfts but this is dogshit art
This shit is the reason why people think NFT (and by extension crypto) is a scam.
Lmao that’s insane.
Time to AI enhance Instagram photos and make millions.
I would sell both my kidneys for this.
I literally would not pay $0.50 for this.
I think $15 would be a fair price
Where does defi APY come from?
I just don’t understand the thought process of buying something line this for that much.
It’s either a self buy or money launder
I wouldn’t buy this even if I was the richest person in the world
Imagine trying to convince some rich idiot that this is worth money hahagaga
Just blatant money laundering. I mean flaunting it.
Can anyone prove he doesn’t own the wallet that sold this and also the one that bought it? Perhaps he just wanted the title of paying the most for a NFT similar to rich billionaires buying art. It’s a “level of prestige” in their community.
