Azuki NFT sale shows how the project is growing
The new owner of Azuki #9605 is very pleased with their purchase. Speaking on Twitter, @Bitcoin4Freedom, said, “I have acquired THE crown jewel of the famed Azuki collection, #9605! #2 in rarity and #1 of the Spirit Azuki’s Honored!”
As he says, this particular NFT is the second rarest Azuki and number one in the Spirit Azuki’s Honored list. However, the rarest of all, #2152, is currently listed at 500 ETH ($1.69 million) on OpenSea. Although, that doesn’t mean the owner will accept a bid.
Meanwhile, Azuki is much more than just an NFT collection. Furthermore, owning one of these NFTs gives you access to ‘The Garden’. The Azuki website describes it as “a corner of the internet where art, community, and culture fuse to create magic”.
What’s more, this is where you can find exclusive streetwear collabs, NFT drops, live events, and more.
