13. CryptoPunk #8857 – $6,630,000 (2,000 ETH)
Zombie CryptoPunks are some of the most famous NFTs to date. Why? For starters, they come from one of the earliest NFT collections, CryptoPunks. Additionally, there are only 88 zombie CryptoPunks in existence.
As a result, the entire NFT community takes notice when one is traded. The sale of CryptoPunk #8857 was obviously no exception, as the $6.6 million price tag was definitely enough to turn heads on its own.
The sale of Punk #8857 came as part of a string of buys that happened throughout the summer and fall of 2021. The enormous price tag was partially triggered by a legendary single-day sale in which NFT collector
Keyboard Monkey bought a zombie Punk and sold it less than 24 hours later for a profit of nearly one million dollars. It was what many would call the height of zombie NFT trading. Around this time in the
zombie Punk market, we even saw the birth of prominent investor Cozomo de’ Medici with the purchase of CryptoPunk #3831. That said, #8857 was never given a personality on Twitter or any other social media platforms.
