Punks On Hive Sold Out! Here Are The Top Buyers And Sales Over Time

avatar

Punks On Hive are officially sold out and the only way if you want to buy some now is from the secondary market. The sale went pretty fast and all of them sold out in around 36 hours period, or just day and a half.

Let’s take a look at some data, like how the sale went over time and the top buyers.

The way I pulled this data is just basically looking at the transfers to @punksonhive account and group that by account and time. It will be more interesting to see at the data for the rarities but I will need to dig a bit deeper for that. For now lets take a loo who did the heavy buying and more interesting maybe how many accounts in total own Hive Punk now.

Here is the chart for the buying’s over time.

I have put hours on the date axis 😊. Since punks sold so fast a date chart wouldn’t means much.
Note the time is UTC.

The web went live few hours before the start of HiveFest. The first buying happened on 13:20 UTC, and prior to the start and during the HiveFest (16:00 UTC) there was a massive amount of buying. Then the curve flattens a bit, with around 3k to 4k punks sold. It went smooth from there until it reached more then 50% in sales, that was on Saturday around 14:30 UTC. Since then the buying started more aggressively again and they all sold out at around 01:30 UTC, Nov 14. There seems to be a bit more transfers after the sale but those didn’t go through.

Top Buyers

Here are the top Hive Punks buyers!

@wizardx and @yabapmatt in close race for the no.1 spot with around 800 punks bought! That’s some nice yolo in there 😊. Congrats!

Next is @marki99 on the third place with just place, and the @blockgaming account, that is the dev account on the fourth place with 300 punks.

The rest on the list are between 100 to 200. I personally didn’t make it, although I’m no.30 on the rank, so almost there 😊.

A total of 496 accounts bought Hive Punks .

Almost 500 accounts participating in this fast sale. I would say that is an OK number for the Hive community and many were able to afford at least one punk. The top 10 accounts bought 35% of the supply.


When it comes to NFTs things can be speculative as the value is totally subjective and it all depends will there be some popularity around them.

I personally expected the punks to be sold for year/s to come but obviously was wrong 😊. This project has showed that there is market for NFTs on the Hive chain. The Splinterlands success probably has brought in some more popularity (and capital) around here, and project like this basically use the momentum. I expect more NFTs projects to come around now, since Hive Punks sort of broke the ice and made a standard how things should look. At some point every community will issue their NFTs.

Hive Punks is using Hive Engine to create the NFTs, but also IPFS to store the images. @themarkymark presented the tech how he build it on HiveFest, and obviously its still not a standard copy past dev thing. We can expect things to become more easier in the future and more project to get into Hive NFTs.

Minting and buying NFT on the Hive blockchain for sure is a much smoother experience then on ETH 😊.

At the end I want to mention DLUX and their NFT project as well.
https://www.dlux.io/nfts/

DLUX is a sidechain on its own, similar to Hive Engine and they got into NFTs as well. Kudos to @disregardedfiat who is behind the project. I will be getting some of those as well 😊.

All the best

Indeed! Will be interesting to see how the prices progress the coming months and years. 10k is a pretty small supply.

How many did you get yourself?

This is massive, this shows that NFT is going to be huge success on the chain, I expected the sales to lag on for like 5 days or so, it seems I was wrong, look at those guys pulling in those crazy resources. Wow.

This is certainly true, I hope this would would count when NFT fully becomes a thing on hive. It could prove instrumental to adoption

da, erau 60-70 raritate, cel mai putin posibil. am platit 20 am luat 27, cel mai ieftin. am dat si vreo cativa de 30-40 hive. am vandut 11 din 20 deja, cu 350 hive pina acum, din 540 platiti pe toti. odata ce imi recuperez ce am platit ii pastrez pe cei mai valorosi.

Got like 9 punks but only 4 are showing in my gallery for now.

The site is slow and very tedious to use.

Never thought it will be sold out so quickly, are we in the top 50 ? I know, you bought 80, I bought somewhere around 60 - 70, without even knowing how to see them or where to see them 😀

@dalz I send 20 hive to @punksonhive as @themarkymark ask me to do and after 11 hours he refunded my 20 hive and he said you used a invalid account name

I checked everything nothing wrong with the transaction now he even not replied to me if all punks are sold and he is not able to mint mine at least he should reply to me

On the other hand I tried to purchase 2 hive punks from secondry market on https://punks.usehive.com/ not received any thing

I don't understand what's going on very very poor and unprofessional way to do its totally worth less

As I said a few times already to you, you sent 20 Hive with the memo "mint 1 hive punk", "Hive Punk" is not a valid username, you should have used "mint 1" or "mint 1 zaibkang" but you did not. So you got refunded.

To use the secondary market, you need to use SWAP.HIVE as the NFTs exist on Hive Engine and Hive Engine cannot use Hive directly as it is a side chain.

I have been as kind and helpful as possible, but I cannot predict and correct user error.

Commonsense is also something I know I ad little more words in the memo but when you receive 20 hive after telling me to send you have to understand everything

You send it improperly, nothing I can do about that. The instructions were extremely simple.

I bought 1 when it was around the 4.5k mark and then it's sold out by the end of the next day. Will there be a use for these punks later?

We didn't know that Splinterlands would be so succesfull, so why not for Punks.

Wow, that is incredibly fast, even if it's a very limited supply... but I have a feeling the successful future of NFTs is going to be particularly about "very limited supply."

I missed the boat as I really had no available liquidity... oh well! But congratulations to all those who got in.

I was able to grab some punks too. Im interested on seeing the direction this avatars can take, be it used as game assets, personal images (Im using a PFP from Binance atm), galleries in virtual spaces, even characters in fiction... Used as AMIIBO avatars that you can select in different games, as a clear signalling for new projects airdrops (owners of Punks are definitely active, savvy Hive members)... The sky is the limit. The rarity traits also offer quite a bunch of opportunities to work over them.
Anyone has any short term plans for this?

It is so exciting to be part of the punk family. Any where to check the list of top 100 buyers or so?

Hope to see more quality nft projects. I love the bee nft.
