The last block on the pre-Merge proof-of-work (PoW) Ethereum chain was filled by a 31.5 ETH VanityBlocks non-fungible token (NFT), which was followed by the first NFT on the post-Merge proof-of-stake (PoS) chain, minted for 36 ETH.
As of press time, a VanityBlocks NFT called “The Last POW Block” is being auctioned on the OpenSea NFT marketplace with a running bid of 10 ETH.
F2Pool successfully mined the final block on the Ethereum PoW chain containing the NFT.
VanityBlocks NFTs are intended to fill a complete block upon minting, allowing owners to claim a portion of the Ethereum network.
Meanwhile, @0xTransition on Twitter announced the release of “The Transition,” a set of 100 generative tokens featuring pandas, the first NFTs on the PoS chain.
At the time of publication, the auction for “The Transition” had a standing offer of 1.76 ETH.
