Selling Fidenza #313 NFT, a Speculator Transforms $1,100 Into $3.35 Million

Although data reveals a substantial comeback in NFTs, some remain unconvinced.

Published

on

Artist Tyler Hobbs’ Fidenza #313 NFT was just auctioned for 1,000 ETH. That works out to $3,350,000 in today’s money.

Even more impressive is the fact that the vendor, who goes by the OpenSea moniker “PizzAle,” paid 0.58 ETH (about $1,100) for it two months ago, indicating a significant return on investment.

The Fidenza collection, which includes 999 different NFT artworks, debuted in June of this year. Each piece is created using an algorithmic process to fill the canvas space with distinct colored rectangles and squares patterns.

According to Hobbs, the technique can produce a wide range of scale, texture, and color. This, in turn, combines to “generate a vast range of generating possibilities.”

“Fidenza is by far the most adaptable algorithm I’ve ever created. Despite the program’s focus on organized curves and blocks, the various scales, organization, texture, and color combinations it can use generate a vast range of generative possibilities.”

The NFT market is resurrecting

While the NFT market had a brief downturn, a series of high-profile sales recently suggest that a recovery is on the way.

The Stoner Cats collection, for example, sold out in 35 minutes of its release, netting $8 million. Furthermore, demand pushed gas prices to 600 gwei at the moment due to congestion on the Ethereum network.

CryptoPunks are also popular, with an average selling price of $135,000 per punk due to high demand.

Devin Finzer, co-founder and CEO of OpenSea, said his platform had processed $95 million in volume in just two days since the beginning of the month.

At the same time, data analysts Messari revealed that OpenSea’s volume had surpassed $1 billion for the year.

The NFT industry appears to be on the rise, coinciding with a revival of bullishness in cryptocurrencies.

Opinions are still polarized

However, when it comes to pricey NFT artwork, social media users continue to express their contempt.

The most popular Twitter comment in response to the sale of Fidenza #313 reminded out that saving the image is free:

“Cost me 0 ETH to save this to my computer just now.“

Another commenter speculated that the sale of Fidenza #313 was a wash sale intended to increase the price of the piece/collection artificially. Money laundering, which is becoming a recurring theme with pricey NFTs, was then noted by this user.

Is it digital art or a method of money laundering? Maybe a little of both. In any event, the verdict on NFTs is still out.

John Cena has Described his NFT Sales as a “Catastrophic Disaster”

Wrestling Entertainment offered 500 $1,000 gold tier packages with Cena’s NFT, but only a small percentage of them were sold.

Published

According to professional wrestler and actor John Cena, fans only bought 7.4 percent of the World Wrestling Entertainment, or WWE, NFTs that he made accessible last month.

Cena said it was a mistake to offer his WWE NFTs as part of a package including physical collectibles — a hat, shirt, wristbands, belt, towel, autographed picture, and the digital collectible — at Florida Supercon 2021 on Sept. 12. Instead, the group provided 500 $1,000 gold tier packages with the NFT, but only a tiny percentage of them were sold.

“I talk a lot about failure,” Cena remarked, “and this notion failed.” “I and the WWE thought $1,000 was a reasonable pricing point. We were mistaken. We were completely incorrect.”

He added:

“We sold 37 of them. It was a catastrophic failure.”

Cena and WWE produced two tiers of NFTs for the wrestler: a 24-hour auction of a “John Cena Platinum NFT” and 500 limited edition NFTs the following day as part of the bundle mentioned above of physical collectibles. The platinum NFT reportedly sold for $21,000, with the highest bidder receiving VIP seats to WrestleMania 38 in Dallas or WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles, as well as hotel accommodations.

Long before the rise in popularity of NFTs, the WWE veteran promoted the crypto space on social media. He shared a picture of the physical token before the 2017 Bitcoin (BTC) bull run when the price was in the $4,000s. The Undertaker, a retired professional wrestler who was a member of the WWE until 2020, has also appeared in NFT collections.

It’s unclear whether the NFT’s price — Cena estimated the digital artwork to be worth around $500 — or the actual memorabilia put off wrestling fans. In July, an entrepreneur held simultaneous auctions for an Apple co-founder Steve Jobs job application and an NFT. The real paper sold for $343,000, while the NFT received a final bid of 12 Ether (ETH), or $27,460 at the moment.

FTX: Steph Curry Partnership and $290,000 NFT

FTX, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, has announced a collaboration with Steph Curry and has seen a surge in activity on its NFT platform.

Published

on

FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried revealed that the platform would now include an NFT marketplace, allowing its crowds of foreign and US users to manufacture, purchase, and sell the tokens on the Solana and Ethereum networks.

The first FTX NFT sells for more than $200,000

Shortly after its opening, the new marketplace was inundated with fish-related submissions, resulting in significant spamming. As a result, the company raised its $10 fee to $500 in order to significantly limit the number of spammers.

In a tweet, Bankman-Fried quickly announced a $500 one-time billing fee. “Due to a large number of submissions, many of which were just a photo of a fish,” tweeted the FTX CEO, “we are now charging a one-time $500 fee to submit NFTs.” “Hopefully, this will help to cut down on spam.”

One of the first notable incidents after the FTX marketplace’s launch was when the CEO of the crypto exchange witnessed his own test NFT listing sell for US$270,000.

Stephen Curry, a basketball superstar, has joined FTX as an ambassador

In other news, FTX has attracted Stephen Curry, one of basketball’s brightest stars, as its global ambassador, and he will receive an equity part in FTX Trading Limited. The exchange announced a press release on September 7.

According to the press release, the cooperation with the crypto exchange is the first in the crypto field for the basketball sensation.
