Steve Aoki recently bought an Azuki NFT, now it’s being questioned whether or not his infamous ‘Aoki Curse’ is real. Before, people have questioned this curse in the past. Apparently, there is a tendency for floors to drop near the time that DJ Steve Aoki apes in the collection for some reason.
Will the Aoki Curse continue for Azuki?
The ‘Aoki Curse’ has circled Twitter on a few occasions where the worldwide famous DJ has purchased an NFT from a big collection. Some standout examples include Moonbirds, his investment into Yuga Labs, 3Landers, and more (note, the prices didn’t all go down after his purchases, and some examples include people questioning whether or not it would happen).
Most recently, Steve Aoki bought into the Moonbirds collection that was growing in popularity within the last month at an all-time high, before it dipped.
Now, Aoki has purchased an Azuki NFT for 23.98 ETH last night. People are certainly concerned, which may be reasonable. The purchase was around 19 hours ago, and the current floor price is 23 ETH. In the last 24 hours, the floor price of Azuki is down 7.11% in the last 24 hours, a time in which Aoki’s purchase was included.
Azuki is a popular, blue-chip NFT collection that was created in February of this year. Their premier collection, simply titled ‘Azuki’ sits at a floor price of 23 ETH. It once reached a high of 31.5 ETH. Their secondary collection, BEANZ, has a floor price of 3.6 ETH, and they this morning announced a partnership with Ledger.
Azuki has 305,000+ followers on Twitter, with 129,000 Discord members. Some of their famous followers include Pranksy, FaZe Banks and of course, Steve Aoki.
The entire collection and their secondary collection have gained lots of hype since their release. The company has undoubtedly become one of the biggest and most popular NFT collections.
