Nine rare plots of digital land on blockchain game Axie Infinity were sold in what is now the most expensive NFT sale ever.
Nine plots of land on blockchain game Axie Infinity were sold for over 888 ETH (≈$1.5 million) yesterday, making them the most expensive non-fungible token (NFT) sale ever. The buyer was an anonymous entity known only as “Flying Falcon.”
While the digital land is worth the same as a high-priced property in a prime location (in the real world), Flying Falcon said they see such digital ecosystems to grow even further. “Axie land has entertainment value, social value, and economic value in the form of future resource flows,” they said.
Called the “epic 9 plot Genesis estate,” the virtual land is a special, supply-capped plot with a unique aesthetic and special positioning within the Axie ‘land’ system. It’s part of an upcoming game mode within Axie Infinity that allows players to build/decorating property, harvest resources, and battle their owned digital monsters called “Axies.”
