Studio Larva Labs launched CryptoPunks NFTs – a collection of 10,000 collectible characters – back in June of 2017. In 2022, Yuga Labs acquired the digital collection of Punks. They are one of the first collections ever created on the Ethereum blockchain under the ERC-721 NFT standard.
It includes 10,000 unique 24 x 24-pixel art images of characters with combinations of up to 87 attributes. Each Punk can have a maximum of seven traits. However, there is one Punk with complete seven traits – Punk #8348 with the following traits: a cigarette, earring, mole, buck teeth, shades, top hat, and a beard. But, at the same time, your Punk can have zero traits. All of which play a huge role in their NFT rarity. Their most unique traits include zombies, apes, and aliens.
All CryptoPunks are randomly-generated which makes you the sole owner of a unique pixel avatar. During the public release, 9,000 Punks were available for mint with Larva Lab keeping the remaining 1,000. The most expensive Punk sold for $23.7 million!
