• Crowned Bored Ape with trippy fur sells for a record-breaking $2.7 million

  • Last night, bored ape #8585 was sold for a record-breaking 696.969 ETH ($2.7 million). That is the highest price ever paid for a Bored Ape.

    This NFT is part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection, which includes a variety of apes with various expressions and outfits, some of which are more rare than others.

    This sale comes after a string of high-priced Bored Ape sales. There have been two other sales above the $1 million mark in the last 20 days, one for a Bored Ape with trippy fur and one for a robot ape with cyborg eyes.

    In addition to Bored Ape #8585, the buyer recently purchased a few other NFTs. These included a Fidenza — one of the Art Blocks Curated NFTs — and two CryptoPunks for 200 ETH ($775,000). The CryptoPunks were purchased for 155 ETH ($600,000) and 265 ETH ($1,000,000).

    The buyer spent $5 million on the JPEGs in total, and they still have $1 million in ETH in their wallet.
