Salty Pirate Crew sets sail
The SPC Public Sale was released at 0.06 ETH per pirate ($210 AUD/each at the time of posting) and sold out in just 2 hours for a total of 180 ETH ($633k AUD). To say the launch was a success would be an incredible understatement, with over 360 ETH in NFT trading volume on the secondary market at the time of posting.
Salty Pirate Crew was trending on the front page of OpenSea (a peer-to-peer marketplace for NFTs) and Icy.Tools (an NFT analytics platform), generating even more traction to the NFT collection. In the first 48 hours post launch, over $1 million in secondary sales took place, with the Secondary Price trading at an ultimate high of 0.42 ETH ($1800 AUD), 7x the initial investment.
There are now over 900 individual holders of SPC tokens, with less than 8% of the NFT collection available for sale on the secondary market. Among these token holders are some high profile names in Australian sports and entertainment, including music producers What So Not, Lucille Croft and Luude, former Australian Masterchef contestant Hayden Quinn, and professional rugby league players Cody Walker and Latrell Mitchell, among others.
