There is only one CryptoPunk 6503, and Heritage Auctions has him this month
Larva Labs (Est. 2005), CryptoPunk 6503. Non-fungible token NFT, 24 x 24 pixels. Minted on June 23, 2017. Ed. 1/1.



DALLAS, TX.- Four years ago they were unleashed into the wild, just given away, all 10,000 of these randomly generated pixelated portraits made of computer code.

CryptoPunks, they were called, the bad boys and girls of the Ethereum, these new kids on the blockchain. They were among the first of the NFTs, long before your mom knew that stood for "non-fungible token." These digital visages didn't have names, merely numbers — and easily identifiable traits, as no two CryptoPunks are alike.

What once was given away has become the coveted and valuable, driven in part by "Silicon Valley CEOs, prominent venture capitalists, famous YouTubers, poker stars and major business personalities" who fell in love with the 'Punks, as TechCrunch noted in April in a story examining "The Cult of CryptoPunks." Prices skyrocketed; so, too, interest and demand, driven by what TechCrunch said was "climbing cryptocurrency prices, the rise in popularity of Dapper Labs' NBA Top Shot and the resurgence of the physical collectibles markets."

Finally, for the first time, Heritage Auctions is offering its clients a ticket to the thrill ride. On Oct. 19, the auction house will present CryptoPunk 6503.

Let us tell you something about this mystery man.

He's one of 6,039 male punks. One of 2,459 to sport an earring. One of only 303 with a peak spike. And one of just 282 with a chinstrap. Out of 10,000.

There is only one No. 6503. As Mr. Rogers might have said, He's a very special CryptoPunk. There is only one like him in the whole world.

And on Oct. 19, he can be all yours.
