According to CoinDesk (which cited industry tracker CryptoSlam), Monday's daily sales volume for CryptoPunks reached a record $86 Million.

The CryptoSlam reports that CryptoPunks' sales volume has increased by 881% in the past 30 days to $461 million.

On Tuesday, a single Zombie CryptoPunk was sold for 1,600 Ethereum, or $5.3 Million. CryptoPunk #7252, the fourth most valuable CryptoPunk, is also the highest value in the rare green-faced category of zombies. Original price for the NFT was $2.5 million. This is more than double their initial investment.

Although most of the 10,000 CryptoPunks aren't sold in the seven-figure range, the art collection's NFTs sell for more than the average project. Visa paid $150,000 for CryptoPunk #7610 Monday.
