Yesterday, the long-anticipated flip finally happened as the BAYC floor price briefly surpassed the CryptoPunks one. However, Twitter NFT influencer Zeneca (@Zeneca_33) thinks we shouldn’t get that excited – and neither did he.
In fact, the collector didn’t even stick to his promise of selling one of his BAYC to buy a Punk NFT instead. But why?
NFT influencer Zeneca won’t sell his BAYC anymore
The NFT world was taken aback by the history-making shift in floor prices yesterday. Basically, the BAYC flipped CryptoPunks for the first time as it’s floor price rose to 53.9 ETH. Meanwhile, the CryptoPunks floor price was at 52.69 ETH.
Obviously, it’s a tight race, and this change made many collectors consider selling their BAYC NFTs dor profit. Even the top NFT influencer Zeneca once promised he’d sell one of the three BAYC NFTs he holds, should the project ever flip CryptoPunks.
Yet he didn’t.
In a long Twitter thread, Zeneca explained that the flip doesn’t really mean that the BAYC NFTs became more valuable. The BAYC floor price may seem to have risen, but a closer look reveals quite the opposite.
In fact, the floor price of the BAYC NFTs has remained constant all along. As Zeneca proved, the CryptoPunks floor price was just briefly “bleeding,” hence
As a result, the NFT influencer Zeneca decided to hold on to his precious BAYC digital assets. Nevertheless, he did mention that his decision might be “probably dumb,” but that’s something we’ll know as 2022 will unfold.
Of course, the CryptoPunks got back on track in less than 24 hours, regaining the first position in terms of floor prices.
Big projects might reign over 2022
In the same Twitter thread, Zeneca went on to point towards other projects that are considerably more promising than other startups. For example, the NFT-focused betting platform Monkey Bet has seen an impressive 89% rise, while the Loot Project went up by 36%.
In summary, the NFT influencer Zeneca believes that iconic projects such as BAYC and CryptoPunks will continue to reign the NFT sphere in 2022 too.
