Another CryptoPunk with zombie skin? But this guy’s a real punk, with his sharp mohawk he’s been through quite the journey, from his first sale price of $674 he recently sold for more than $4 million. Crazy!

Three in a row! Another zombie punk joins the list, though this one has some crazy red hair matching his eyes, with a gold earring and brown chinstrap beard. With some highly desirable traits in the CryptoPunk community, he looks incredible.

Made by Dmitri Cherniak, these pieces are made with variables including peg count, sizing, layout, wrap orientation, and a few colourful flourishes for good measure. And the stars have aligned to make this variation the most valuable NFT in August.
