Punks Comic on Punkscomic.com early this week, time TBA

About the creator

Pixel Vault is a media company aiming to promote NFTs through creating decentralized intellectual property.

NFT Type

Art/Collectable/Fractional Ownership

About the drop

  • The drop consists of a sale of PUNKS the Comic NFTs, priced at 0.2 ETH each with a max supply of 10,000.
  • In addition to the NFT, you also get a physical copy of the actual comic book. PUNKS the Comics NFTs can be staked to get fractional ownership of 16 CryptoPunks collectively valued at 1,250 ETH ($4 million).
  • Alternatively, you can burn (permanently destroy) your PUNKS the Comics NFT in exchange for a Founders Token.
  • These tokens give you proportional ownership of everything in the Founders Vault, which includes the Genesis 1/1 mint of PUNKS the comic; 25% ownership of the Fractional Punks tokens; 1 Lost Robbie; 1/1 works from Hackatao, Killer Acid, Robbie Trevino; and much more.

I know that may have been a bit complicated to read through, so feel free to check out the full drop details on Pixel Vault for a longer explanation.

Artist sales history, if applicable

  • Cryptopunks are the most popular NFT project, with over $2.5 million in daily transaction volume.
  • Hackatao, Killer Acid, and Robbie Trevino are respectively the 3rd, 131st, and 221st ranked artists by total artwork value.

Typical prices

  • The current floor price for CryptoPunks is around $70,000 for one, but some have sold for over $7.6 million.
  • Pricing for punks depends on their traits and varies wildly, but the $4 million valuation is reasonable for the 16 punks selected.
  • Buyers may pay a premium for them in the future if Pixel Vault successfully builds a community and story around them as characters in the comic.

Artist community

  • Twitter followers: 1.6k

Verdict

5/5

This project gives a wider number of people the ability to invest in CryptoPunks, which are otherwise out of reach with a $70k minimum investment. Building up a community and story around a particular set of punks should also significantly increase demand for those particular punks. The team is made up of big names in the NFT space and the artist collaborations are top notch.

Hackatao ranks #3 by total artwork value with 1,504 NFTs sold. His previous NFT drops have almost all had significant price appreciation. Skygolpe is the 132nd ranked artist with just 84 NFTs sold so far. The NFTs in his first drop on Nifty Gateway in January have appreciated 600-3000% since then.

Verdict

5/5

Both of these artists’ work have had significant price appreciation and Hackatao has a huge fan base within the NFT space. I expect extremely high demand for this drop.

Blake Kathryn

  • Instagram followers: 89.6k
  • Twitter followers: 40.3k

Verdict

4/5

Musician drops have not been performing well on the secondary market, which may scare off some potential buyers. Kathryn is the bigger draw in terms of long-term value for this drop and her popularity within the NFT space may still make this a good buy.

3LAU on Nifty Gateway Sunday 4 pm PDT

About the creator

3LAU is a recording artist, EDM DJ, and producer who is one of the most involved mainstream musicians in the NFT space. In February he sold a few digital albums as NFTs for over $11 million.
