    A comprehensive monograph chronicling the phenomenal rise of CryptoPunks – one of the world’s first and most sought-after crypto collectibles and trailblazer for digital art and web3 culture.

    CryptoPunks: Free to Claim   explores the meteoric rise of a pre-eminent NFT collectible: what began as an experiment in digital ownership has become the catalyst for a digital art movement and a dynamic subculture synonymous with a new age of the internet.

    Minted on the Ethereum blockchain in 2017, the CryptoPunks – 10,000 uniquely generated pixel characters – have produced more than $2.3 billion in cumulative sales and entered the permanent collections of major institutions including LACMA and Centre Pompidou, meanwhile fostering a passionate and decentralized online community.

    All 10,000 CryptoPunks are presented in a special 400+ page catalogue raisonné within this book, with a comprehensive listing including Punk, number, type, colors, attributes and image hash. A timeline provides a zine-like assemblage of community member posts and tweets as they happened; while an extensive glossary defines more than 100 anonymously authored terms and ideas with guest contributions from Beeple, Emily Segal, Venkatesh Rao, and more.
