It’s obvious that CryptoPunks have actually been a dominant force in the NFT landscape lately. Today, some mindful crypto community members found what appears to be a long-lost CryptoPunk vault; an EtherScan shows the account holding over 140 Punks and no activity because approximately 2017. CryptoPunks were developed in June of 2017 and are commonly considered as the “original NFT” project to come to market.

The Unknown Vault First seen from our team at Bitcoinist by Twitter user @TraderKoz, the apparently dormant account presently holds 141 CryptoPunks. According to the Larva Labs leaderboard, that puts this account directly in the leading 10 in regards to CryptoPunk volume. At present time, just 17 accounts presently hold at least 100 Punks. The account tracker on Larva Labs webpage shows that the account was last active four years earlier.

There is a lot of action to go around, too. Previously this year, our group reported on a single CryptoPunks bidder paying out over $6M in bids for numerous Punks.

Today, the CryptoPunks connoisseurs are left with more questions than responses here; is this account holder just a long holder, or possibly they lost their keys? Just time will tell.
