Curio Cards – the oldest NFT art collection on the Ethereum blockchain full set (featuring all 30 cards and the 17b misprint) sold a massive 393 ETH or $1.2 million in an Ether exclusive auction conducted by Christie’s on Oct 01. This is the first time that an art collection sold exclusively in the Ether (ETH) token or any other cryptocurrency. Most of the previous NFT auctions happened with USD (on-chain or otherwise). The world’s largest auction house has taken a keen interest in the digital art collection on blockchain as of late and recently surpassed $100M in NFT sales volume.

The Curio Cards were a part of the Post-War to Present collection, which features highly sought-after contemporary artists and also blockchain-based Art Blocks NFT collection. It kickstarts the October season for the world’s largest auction house. This historical event happened by the commendable efforts of Noah Davis – Associate Vice President at Christie’s and resident NFT Specialist. This will push NFT tokens towards mainstream adoption by granting them legitimacy and approval of traditional art houses.

About Curio Cards

Curio Cards are the oldest NFT art collection on the Ethereum blockchain. The contract deployed on May 9th, 2017. This means that it predates CryptoPunks by 45 days or 1.5 months – which released on 23rd June 2017. It was created by Thomas Hunt, Travis Uhrig, and Rhett Creighton. The cards are better understood as heavily modified ERC-20 tokens since NFT grade ERC-721 wasn’t available at that time. There are a total of 27,997 Curio Cards, after discounting ~1000 burned cards. They are a collection of 30 collectible cards with variable supplies, which have different meanings and of course a rich history.
