Definition: CryptoPunks

An NFT collection of 10,000 computer-generated pop art characters from Larva Labs. Introduced in 2017, there are 6,039 male and 3,840 female CryptoPunks, and sales have reached the stratosphere. Total revenue has surpassed $1.5 billion, and characters routinely sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Because the images are generated by an algorithm, the ones with unique features are considered the most valuable (see below).
