Tim Ferriss’ “Cockpunch” NFT Project Nets Over $3.3 Million in Sales, Funds Saisei Foundation

Legend of cockpunch is an ethereum project co-created by popular author and podcast host tim ferriss. the project comprises 5,555 images of anthropomorphized rooster characters with various traits and weapons. the primary sale of the nfts (non-fungible tokens) happened earlier today and yielded just over $2 million, with all proceeds going to ferriss’ own saisei foundation.

Primary sale of the nfts took place via premint’s new minting platform. secondary market prices have surged, with the nfts listed at 1.4 eth ($1,725) on leading marketplace opensea. opensea’s market-wide chart shows about 2,700 eth (over $3.3 million) worth of secondary sales thus far. ferriss released his first-ever nft earlier this year as part of grails, with just 60 members minting the author’s nft, titled “how to start a war”.

Has written an entire first season of a narrative podcast that will share the lore of the project’s fictional fantasy world. nft owners can use their characters to create derivative artwork and projects, thanks to a commercial rights grant. popular collections like the bored ape yacht club and cryptopunks have been used to create virtual bands and supergroups, apparel, themed restaurants, drinks, and other products. the proceeds from the project are going to the saisei foundation, which funds research into treatments related to psychedelics, life extension, mental health, and more.
