However, due to Ethereum price swings, this is just the third greatest sale in terms of ETH. Two CryptoPunks were sold for 4,200 ETH a piece in March, but today’s sale only brought in 2,500 ETH.

Sotheby’s auction of CryptoPunk #7523 for $11.75 million also outranks the sale which became the most expensive CryptoPunk ever sold. 

Someone bid 2,500 ETH on the rare CryptoPunk #6046 in October of this year, which would’ve made it the most expensive sale at the time at $9.5 million if the Punk owner had accepted.

The owner however declined, claiming that the rare punk was too attached to his identity and brand, therefore he turned down the millions.

Punk’s attributes determine the worth of CryptoPunks, with the hoodie, beanie, and pilot helmet traits being the most valued. The #4156 NFT’s attribute is a bandana. 481 punks have a bandana as an accessory.
