The owner of NFT CryptoPunk #7557 mistakenly sold it for a pretty little amount.

It looks like the owner tried to set the price at 4444 ETH, but accidentally put a dot after the first digit and sold it for 4.444 ETH.

NFT CryptoPunk #7557 is quite rare – it represents a punk in a golden tiara, and there are only 55 such “crowned” punks in the collection.


The cheapest tiara Punk is around 350 ETH ($1.5 million), and the last sale of such an NFT took place at a price of 196.69 ETH ($843,000).

The last time CryptoPunk #7557 was sold 4 months ago for 59.99 ETH, so the selling person took a loss of about 55 ETH by accidentally setting the sale price of 4.444 eth.

CryptoPunk #7557 owner first set the price at 8,888 ETH. It seems then he decided to reduce the price to 4444 ETH ($19.1 million), but accidentally put a dot after the first digit and the sale was made at 4.444 ETH. So instead of millions of dollars, the owner received $19,100.

Since the price of the Punk was significantly lower than the market, the buyer used “flash bots” – he sent 3.33 ETH directly to the miner to make sure the transaction is immediately in the block.

Recall that recently the owner of NFT CryptoPunk #9998 sold his punk for a record $532 million, but later it turned out that the sale was fictitious and the owner “sold” the NFT to himself.
