Two Chromie Squiggle NFTs For $4M
At the time, the anonymous buyers snapped up Chromie Squiggle #7583, a rare and perfect spectrum at 922.5 ETH, and a follow-up purchase of Chromie Squiggle #2855 for 420 ETH.
Before ending the spending spree, the buyer grabbed Ringer #787 for 275 ETH. These purchases attracted the attention of the winder NFT community, with many speculating the buyer was a Venture Company or an institution as the estimated wallet was worth more than $25milion and featured an array of highly sought-after pieces.
Unfortunately, amid the continuing general crypto market dump, which has left many digital assets shedding more than 70% of their value, the anonymous buyer attracts more than $3.9 million in losses from his investment in Chromie Squiggle NFTs at the current prices.
Chromie Squiggle NFTs Market Health
Launched in 2021, Chromie Squiggle NFTs are unique collections of randomly generated “squiggles” of color-made artworks on the Ethereum blockchain. The NFT project features a limited edition of 10,000 NFTs, with 9,166 squiggles already minted.
Since its inception, the Chromie Squiggle NFTs continue to flourish, attracting the attention of many crypto enthusiasts. Earlier this year, the NFT project had attracted more than 220,000 followers on social media.
Chromie Squiggle’s woes started earlier this year after a 60-page report circulated online purportedly alleging that the whole project was a rug and pull. The now-deleted report linked the team behind Squiggles NFTs with a series of infamous “rug and pull” NFT projects, including The League of Sacred Devils, League of Devine Beings, Vault for Gems, Lucky Buddhas, Dirty Dogs, Sinful Souls, and Faceless, among others.
The report exposed the names of the team behind the syndicate, including Gabriel Hay, Gavin Mayo, and Ali Saghi believed to be the team behind the Chromie Squiggle NFT project. Unfortunately, these rumors led OpenSea marketplace to delist Chromie Squiggles NFTs to pave the way for investigations.
Nonetheless, the team behind Chromie Squiggle NFTs has refuted these claims in several cases, maintaining that the project was legit and with good intentions. These allegations and the general crypto market dump are the main factors behind the massive loss in value of Chromie Squiggle NFTs.
Chromie Squiggle NFT #7583 is valued at 8.31 ETH ($13,214.93), while Chromie Squiggle NFT #2855 values 8.3 ETH ($13.214.93) at the time of writing. Ringers NFT #787 is currently worth 25.9 ETH, equivalent to $41,236.96.
