The Goblintown NFT collection recently recorded sales of $22.85 million, even more than Otherdeed’s sales of $20.73 million.
Interest among the NFT collections this week was caused by the goblintown compilation project. The non-standard collection consists of 9,999 goblins. One of the main reasons why the community paid attention to it is the fact that initially the tokens were free and only over time received significant real value, reports news.bitcoin.
It is noteworthy that the development of the project was not accompanied by any noisy actions or commercial events. Just about a week ago, the minimum price per token was 0.5 ETH, and by the end of the week it reached 2.79 ETH, jumping by 458% during this period.
The official start of the project was given only on May 22. The only way people found out about it was by “word of mouth.” Now the goblin collection is worth over $ 50 million and is the leader in terms of sales this week.
On Twitter, the Goblintown account at the time of writing the text has 45,600 subscribers, and according to current data, at least 1 token from the collection today has 4,725 owners.
Interestingly, despite the popularity of the collection, no one yet knows who is behind the sensational project and where such a company of goblins came from.
There is unconfirmed evidence that the author of digital creations may be a DJ from the United States Steve Aoki or a startup Yuga Labs. Well, the increased cost of the anonymous creation allowed goblin token sellers to make significant profits. So, one of them over the past 7 days earned 5039%, and the second for 5 days – 264%.
The most expensive “goblin” token for the week was Goblintown 8995. The owner sold it for 69.42 ETH or $136,000. For Goblintown 5948, the new owner paid 26 ETH or $ 51,000, and Goblintown 7944 cost the new owner 27 ETH or $ 46,000.
