Requiem for Punk 685
CryptoPunk 685 has been accidentally burned in a failed wrapping attempt, per this Etherscan transaction. The news was initially reported by @seanbonner and @punk9059.
❗ Why It Matters
To many, CryptoPunks is the premier collection. They've been featured in museums, and those with Punk PFPs are often true OGs in the space. At worst, they're 1A/1B with BAYC, and they rose back to #1 in Lucky Trader's Power Rankings this week.
There isn't much else to say and we send our condolences to vitalitygrowth.eth, who bought Punk 685 for 77 ETH less than two weeks ago.

Worth noting that @yugalabs holds the V1 token for #685 which was a "dev punk" - along with 1084 other @v1punks which they've given no clarity about their future plans for. There's so much Cryptopunk history still to be written...— Sean Bonner (@seanbonner) March 24, 2023
