Here’s a list of its characteristics, along with how many other Punks share them:
Male gender (6,039)

Why Does It Matter? For NFT collectors, Cryptopunks are the ideal rookie card. In 2021, CryptoPunks have grown in power, with hundreds of celebrities openly displaying their punk ownership on Twitter. Cryptopunk sales are a leading signal for the rest of the NFT industry, demonstrating that some people are ready to spend a lot of money on blockchain-based art.
