Axie Infinity takes claim to the highest recorded NFT sale to date. The sale consisted of 9 connected Genesis Land plots worth 888.25 ETH or roughly $1,500,000.
Let’s break down this record setting sale…
The seller of this monster deal is a well-known Punk Collector, Axie Investor, and recent Hashmask record setter, Danny.
Flying Falcon, has made several major investments and has dominated the Axie fomobot purchases channel with their recent mystic purchases. In Falcon’s inventory, we can see they own 5 Double Mystics and 7 Single Mystics.
This is the start of a very beautiful Axie Mystic collection.
Broken down, the price per Genesis land plot is about 98.7 ETH. The cheapest Genesis for sale at the time of writing is around 100 ETH. The price per plot is roughly that of floor. However, this deal is even sweeter because these plots are connected. Which, in my opinion, makes the plots even more valuable than floor. Since this was a bulk land deal, I am sure there was a discount applied.
The price significance of connected plots is not entirely known at this time. We know that structures are going to be built on top of land, but the area requirements for those structures are not disclosed. This land plot could have one of the greatest front row seats to Luna’s Landing in all of Lunacia.
Flying Falcon put out a tweet thread to explain their recent record setting acquisition of this estate:
The text version of the tweet:
“1) Why I spent $1.5 million on digital land in the Axie Infinity metaverse
2) We’re witnessing a historic moment; the rise of digital nations with their own systems of clearly delineated, irrevocable property rights. Axie land has entertainment value, social value, and economic value in the form of future resource flows.
3) As Genesis land plots are the rarest (diamond) and best positioned plots in Axie Infinity they were a natural fit for my thesis. The full estate of 9 Genesis land plots maximizes the opportunity ahead.
4) Axie’s 2020 growth, fueled by the secular trend of the digital economy, was by all measures remarkable.
Axie holders increased 743%
Monthly active users jumped 3063%
Market place volume rose 608%
This is just from battles. This is just the beginning.
5) Axie Land is the upcoming metaverse release. Soon players can use Axie Infinity art assets to create their own games and experiences. Festivals, concerts, sporting events. The land is the bridge. The opportunities are endless.
6) I am super excited to be part of the Axie community. I am thrilled to be an explorer and builder within the broader Axie nation.
7) If you’d like to help build the Axie nation and be part of something special, then the Axie discord is a great place to begin your journey.”
Flying Falcon clearly believes in the Axie team, the Axie vision, and the Axie community. These Genesis plots are in good hands!
