CryptoPunks Ape #2924 sells for over three thousand ETH!
Apes are incredibly rare in the collection of 10,000 Punks. In fact, there are only 24 in existence, and collectors and holders have locked many of these away. Interestingly, Ape #2924 only has one attribute, and there are only 333 Punks in total, with just one accessory.
