The crypto world has witnessed NFT artwork selling for up to $69 million and there is no sign of the momentum stopping anytime soon.

PolygonPunks are a unique Non-Fungible Token (NFT) on the Polygon blockchain. The entire collection of 10,000 punks were officially minted on August 3rd, 2021 via the polygonpunks.io website – solidifying their history as the 1st CryptoPunks on Polygon. PolygonPunks have clear intentions to be unique while simultaneously recognizing and giving homage to the original CryptoPunks NFT collection, whose floor price currently resides at $64,000Each PolygonPunk has attributes that make them unique according to a defined rarity system. 

Once the PolygonPunks minting finished, a buying frenzy ensued. In less than 24 hours the PolygonPunks emerged as the 2nd most popular collection on Opensea by volume. Fast forward a week and the PolygonPunks have over $500,000 in trading volume across all NFT marketplaces, which is 50%+ of the volume CryptoPunks had in 3 years. With Crypto Punks becoming unattainable due to their skyrocketing value, PolygonPunks present an alluring alternative. Not only is the price of PolygonPunks significantly lower, but they are built on Polygon - one of the most scalable, fast, and cost-efficient networks ever built. 

The high trade volume of PolygonPunks was primarily achieved from the buying, selling, and trading on NFTrade a truly decentralized NFT marketplace. PolygonPunks are now the #1 Traded NFT on the platform with $339,000+ in trade volume to date:

To celebrate the successful launch of PolygonPunks and help those in need, PolygonPunks donated 10% of all gross profits from minting to Crypto Relief. Crypto Relief is the result of the global crypto community mobilizing to help India combat the COVID19 crisis, and to help it prepare for future outbreaks. The fund was started by Sandeep Nailwal (co-founder of Polygon) and has since been supported by Vitalik Buterin (co-founder, Ethereum) and Balaji S. Srinivasan (former CTO at Coinbase). 

All the PolygonPunks are visible on the Polygonpunks.io interface and will also be exchangeable on a proprietary NFT marketplace. You can collect as many PolygonPunks as you want but there are only 10,000 in existence and there will never be any more. The minting may be finished but the trading has just begun. Don’t miss out on your chance to own a part of the PolygonPunks legacy!

Alex in Wonderland
A figure, Alex, stands mostly naked in the midst of a physical and psychological maelstrom. He is clad only in nostalgic 80’s era socks, on a tenuous island between active waters and a variety of shark denizens. Sharks on the right side of the image are all beached, including a shark with a quartz crystal snout, an orange shark wrapped in a life buoy, and a shark further in the distance wearing an 80’s style shirt with the number “88”. On the left side is the largest shark, wearing bright glossy red lipstick and brandishing prominent teeth with braces. She is cordoned off from the figure by a roped float divider, and within her thought bubble is a warning symbol. Behind the figure, hovering in the air, are Grey aliens emerging from the distance, out of a series of elliptical UFO shaped interdimensional membranes. The Greys take on the visual form of spermazoa ostensibly impregnating the interdimensional thresholds. As is typical, these Greys inhabit a zone just behind the unconscious topology of Alex’s dissociative mind. Though Alex’s bottom half is representative, his top half mutates into a psychological cornucopia. In a manner akin to “Auto-Erotic Sphinx”, a predecessor work, the figure has self suctioned—an act of sensual infatuation, enjoyment, and exploration. Upward exists the figure’s primary conscious eye, adorned with a revolutionary beret emblazoned with a Bitcoin badge. The figure’s summit features the nose of a fighter jet facing off against video game Bullet Bills, one of whom is marked by a communist North Korean star. A cropped section of a UFO observes the contest. Alex’s mind branches both left and right. To the left is more singular embodied consciousness, manifesting two eyes and a Ganesh trunk grasping crayons. The right branch dissociates upward diagonally, emerging into an array of eyes, faces, teeth, tail, a unicorn horn, and much more—all of which participate in expressing his unconscious being; a democracy of psychic factions representing thought impressions and associations. All illumination and darkness– fernal, infernal, high consciousness and corporeal underbelly–reside in this realm. In the distance are relatively languid, light clouds, and against the firmament hovers a colossal distant eye peering over the scene and far beyond. This painting possesses underlying genetic traits with previous works such as “Auto-Erotic Sphinx with Toys”, “Dionysus”, and “Fuku-Shiva”. The work serves also as a nod to an earlier period of art inspiration during late teens and early twenties— born out of the nakedness, vulnerability, curiosity, and wonder inherent to coming of age and all subsequent psychedelic revelation.

Good morning! I'm Cleocatra. I've never told anyone this, but I once snuggled a dog. It's not common knowledge, but my ancestry connects me to Cleopatra. Will you be the marmite to my maple syrup?
