Vintage NFTs have caused a storm on Twitter this week and unsurpringly, Gary Vee started it.
When we are discussing vintage in real life we usually think of 50 years back, however, in NFTs it is something different. We are talking about NFTs created before 2020-2021. This includes some of the most popular projects like CryptoPunks and CryptoKitties.
Cryptoskulls have been around since May, 2019. The project was created by developer and artist Alex Slayer. Cryptoskulls had a slow start to their journey. This makes sense considering the amount of people involved in NFTs was a fraction of what it is now. Years after this OG creation, the NFT community has found renewed interest in this collection of 10,000 pixel-art skulls. They now have a floor price of 3.1 ETH on OpenSea, they have just under 6,000 characters left, which means they have a tasty profit hopefully emerging.
For people that don’t know, Gary Vee has been pioneering business ventures since the ’90s. After discovering ‘the internet’ he decided to give his fathers liquor store a shakeup. His decision ended up creating one of the first-ever wine e-commerce platforms. This decision meant that his family business grew from $3 million to $60 million in 5 years, impressive.
Gary Vee released a video on Twitter talking about vintage NFT projects. The NFT projects which were created in 2019 and before have landed a place in his heart. In the video, Gary states that “there is some really cool shit” when diving into vintage NFTs.
In conclusion, we hope that Gary recovers from his NFT sickness and will continue to invest in vintage NFTs.
