For sale: a CryptoPunk with an NFT data business attached

DeGenData.eth, a data provider for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), is being put up for sale -- and its operators are breaking new ground by tying the purchase to a particular CryptoPunk NFT.

As outlined in a tweet thread on Monday, the CryptoPunk in question, #5671, will be offered for sale starting January 1. "The new owner of this Punk will have the rights to claim DegenData product and assets."

"We see the lines of what NFTs are beginning to blur. Digital and physical worlds are intertwined now. NFTs aren't just profile pictures. They are becoming the value of what you create around them. It is time for us to push the space to think more about what NFTs represent," the team wrote, going on to note that DeGenData's parent company operates another data-focused project focused on crypto options.
