Chain CEO Deepak Thapliyal Selling NFT Collection In FTX Wake

Chain CEO Deepak Thapliyal announced that he is selling his NFT collection on Thursday, including 10 CryptoPunks and seven Bored Apes. 

The statement comes in the wake of uncertainty surrounding cryptocurrency exchange FTX, of which blockchain-based company Chain has an '8-figure exposure', according to Thapliyal.

The esteemed collection includes Alien CryptoPunk #5822, which last sold for 8000 ETH ($10.3M USD) in February. The wallet also holds a Gold Fur Bored Ape, one of the most-coveted traits in the project's ecosystem. 

Thapliyal indicated that the NFTs will either be sold via auction or fractionally via a DAO.

In 2022, Larva Labs sold the intellectual property of CryptoPunks to Yuga Labs, who created the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
