The sale marks the highest ever purchase of a Doodles NFT and was made by popular NFT collector ‘Pranksy’, who now owns 66 pieces from the pastel-colored collection.
The collection, made up of 10,000 images by artist Burnt Toast, opened public sales on October 17 and has since exploded in value on the secondary market.
Each NFT features variations of 100 unique traits, including faces, hair, hats, body and backgrounds. Doodle holders also gain access to coordinating the Doodles Community Treasury and can vote for different experiences, campaigns, and activations.
The current floor price for a Doodle is 9.25 ETH ($29,634 USD). On Friday, DJ Steve Aoki bought Doodle #2238 for 269.69 ETH ($947,000 USD). Snoop Dogg also holds several Doodles in his collection — a positive sign for the project as it continues to expand.
