❗️Why It Matters
This handoff of the CryptoPunks wrapper from Ark Gallery DAO to Yuga Labs opens up some interesting possibilites for the path of Wrapped CryptoPunks. For example, it's likely that Yuga Labs will improve the UI/UX and make it safer and easier to wrap CryptoPunks to the newer ERC-721 standards that existing NFT marketplaces utilize.
🎤 Project Prose
The CryptoPunks wrapper contract was deployed and maintained by a member of the community, operating totally independently. Taking ownership of the contract and formally folding it into the Punks app is another small step in Yuga Labs' ongoing 'restoration' initiative. Ultimately, it's our goal to support our users by providing a service that is seamless and safe.Noah Davis to Lucky Trader
❗ 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
