This week, Steve Aoki expanded his impressive NFT collection with two Goblintown assets. Now, the NFT community is wondering whether the DJ’s alleged “curse” will affect the project’s floor price. Recently, several NFT collections’ floor prices dropped significantly right after Steve Aoki aped into them.
Steve Aoki just aped into Goblintown NFTs!
On June 9th, the iconic NFT whale and DJ Steve Aoki bought two Goblintown NFTs. Both collectibles feature rare traits such as Angreye, REKT body, and Dizeezsd Stankfinder. According to OpenSea data, the sales cost was 8 ETH and 8.88 ETH.
Of course, the NFT community quickly noticed the purchase. User @0xEthanDG was among the first to tweet about it, wondering whether this is “the end for goblins”. In fact, he was referring to the alleged Steve Aoki “curse”, sparking a new wave of reactions among collectors.
What is the Steve Aoki curse?
Basically, the Steve Aoki curse is an urban myth created by the NFT community. Over time, many popular NFT collections’ floor prices dropped shortly after Steve Aoki bought into them. For example, this happened with projects like Moonbirds and Azuki.
Of course, the NFT community is now debating whether Steve Aoki’s “curse” will strike on Goblintown too. In fact, the DJ might have not bought the NFT himself at all!
Data from OpenSea reveals that another wallet purchased the two collectibles. Then, both assets were transferred to Steve Aoki. However, some Twitter users point out that Steve Aoki might use the initial wallet for trading, which means he actually bought the NFTs.
Obviously, if Goblintown’s floor price will drop this time, the Steve Aoki legend will become even more credible.
What is Goblintown?
In short, Goblintown is a collection of 10,000 NFT avatars of strange cartoon characters. From dragons to wizards and zombies, these collectibles all inhabit Goblin Town.
At this moment, the collection surpassed 33K ETH in total trading volume on OpenSea. Furthermore, its floor price reached 4.2 ETH (at least until Steve Aoki bought his own Goblintown NFTs).
These strange collectibles became popular quickly after launch. Surprisingly, one of the reasons is the strange artwork itself. Judging by the community’s early reactions, these digital assets might redefine the term “beauty”. You can find out more about Goblintown and its Metaverse utility in our post right here.
