An Azuki NFT has recently sold for 420.7 ETH (approximately $1.4 million), making it the largest sale for an asset in the anime-themed collection. The NFT in question is Azuki #9605, which is considered the collection’s second rarest asset due to 6 of its 9 traits being seen in less than 1% of all other NFTs in the collection.
The landmark purchase was made on March 30th by OpenSea user ‘jdizzles,’ from RedBean DAO member and notorious Azuki NFT holder, ‘trevault’. It marked the second record-breaking NFT endeavour from the buyer, as last month saw them pay a whopping 200 ETH for Invisible Friends #1125, an amount previously unseen within the collection.
The sale also trumps the previous Azuki NFT sales record, which stood at $560,000.
The project’s founders, LA startup Chiru Labs, released the 10,000 asset collection back in January, however over its first two months of action, it has already become the most sought-after anime-themed project in the space, as signalled by its generation of over $500 million in OpenSea sales. As described by the founders themselves, the project’s popularity may stem through its provision of access to a corner of the internet where art, community, and culture fuse to create magic.
As expected, interest in Azuki #9605 has continued following its high-profile sale, as currently, a bid of a little over 60 ETH (which is 242% above the collection’s 17.65 ETH floor price) has been made, however as economics would suggest, a reinstated record-breaking bid will probably have to be made in order to take the asset from jdizzles’ grasp.
