Note that the NFT was earlier sold for 1.5 ETH ($4,875 at press time price) 3 months ago, but before that, it was sold for 0.68 ETH ($2,210).

Moreover, Curry’s deal comes ahead of the picture resulting today in all bored ape holders. As per reports, all bored ape holders will receive a “Mutant Serum” per ape after the snapshot. But not many details were given about the serum.

These days, bored apes NFTs are rising in demand. As of now, the cheapest on auction is 25 ETH worth around $81,250, according to OpenSea.
