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.
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.
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.
