History of CryptoPunks Collection
CryptoPunks are a collection of NFTs created by development studio Larva Labs. CryptoPunks were first released to the public in June 2017. At the time of their release, anyone with an Ethereum wallet could freely claim them. However, all 10,000 were quickly claimed and now have to be bought. Larva Labs holds 1,000 CryptoPunks, but the remaining 9,000 can be bought on various NFT marketplaces including OpenSea and Larva Labs’ website.
When CryptoPunks first hit the market, they cost between $1 and $34. Over the years, they have become quite popular and expensive. They can now be sold for millions. The most popular CryptoPunk was sold in June 2021 for $11.7 million to Shalom Meckenzie, an Israeli entrepreneur and billionaire. Another one was sold for $7.57 million to the CEO of Figma.

Evaluating CryptoPunks Collection
CryptoPunks come as male and female humans, zombies, aliens and apes. Most of them are in human form. There are 6,039 male punks, 3,840 female punks, 88 green-skinned zombie punks, 24 hirsute ape punks and 9 light-blue-skinned alien punks.
Each CryptoPunk has its own ostensible personality and unique combination of distinctive features. They are mainly distinguished by their accessories. For example, 696 punks are wearing hot lipstick, 44 are wearing beanie hats, 54 are wearing pilot helmets, 124 have spots, 136 have wild white hair, 146 have big beards and 572 have nerd glasses.
The more accessories a CryptoPunk has, the more expensive it is to buy. The most accessories a single crypto punk can have are 7, making it incredibly rare and expensive. Non-human CryptoPunks are also expensive and rare as there are not many in the market. Like human CryptoPunks, non-human CryptoPunks have a different combination of accessories.
