Forget Hashmasks, these rare Twerky Pepes are taking over
Digital art collectors have spent over 75 ETH ($136,000) on a new collection of rare Twerky Pepes this year — and they’re appreciating rapidly.
LeBron Peps, for instance, originally sold for 0.07 ETH ($128).
But most recently it fetched 2.5 ETH ($4,500) on NFT marketplace OpenSea, a near-3,500% increase.
There’s also ones for Musk, Dogecoin, and Soujla Boy: all were recently bought for $1,000 or more above their first auction prices.
Others are less popular. Cardi Peps hasn’t appreciated at all despite multiple resales, neither has Twerky Clay Doge.
But a new drop from self-styled ‘Walmart of NFTs’ Pranksy is by far the most sought after Pepe right now.
In total, collectors have already spent 21 ETH ($38,000) on Twerky Pranksy. It went on sale less than one day ago.
We found Peps for NFL stars Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes the next most popular.
NFT buyers have sunk around $20,000 worth of Ethereum into those, with Peps Mahomes appreciating by 120% since the Superbowl.

Sadly, the cryptocurrency made specifically for buying and selling rare Pepes, PEPECASH, is now defunct, after its last supporting exchanges delisted it last year.
Luckily, there’s Ethereum.
