This time it was the 6529 Fund with participation from the 6529 Museum. The Museum and the Fund have the same end-goal - I believe important crypto cultural markets should stay natively in decentralized spaces. For long-term, the best outcome is a collectively owned on-chain museum, not an individual owner.Punk6529
🔥 6529 Anecdote
In the midst of all the action, Punk6529 offered a personal message to the counterbidder, thanking them for the exciting evening. If the rumors about the counterbidder's identity are accurate, they had acquired an NFT that Punk6529 had earlier planned on purchasing. In Punk6529's words, this makes things "even."
🔜 What's Next?
The future for the Goose, the Museum, and the Fund is full of potential. They aim to further the cause of decentralization and collective ownership in the NFT space, with the ambitious goal of a collectively owned on-chain museum. Despite some regulatory hurdles, the three entities are hopeful about the future and committed to furthering education about generative art. For now though, the Goose will continue "to live in decentralized spaces."
