Key ‘Dookey Dash’ NFT Sold for $1.63 Million in Ethereum to Billionaire

Key 'Dookey Dash' NFT Sold for $1.63 Million in Ethereum to Billionaire

After getting the highest score in Yuga Labs’ game, “Fortnite” esports superstar Mongraal accepted a 1,000 ETH bid for his NFT.

The 18-year-old gamer Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson said on Monday that he had sold his winning “Dookey Dash” key NFT to billionaire entrepreneur Adam Weitsman for 1,000 ETH, or $1.63 million. Mongraal had put the key NFT up for sale before for 3,333 ETH, which is $5.43 million.

“Super nice guy and thrilled the sale went through with him,” Mongraal said of the sale to Weitsman.

“A special thank you to Yuga Labs for hosting an incredible competition. I look forward to competing in future events. Royalties will be paid in full,” the content creator added.

This means that the creators of “Dookey Dash,” Yuga Labs, will receive 5% of the sale in royalties, which will amount to an impressive 50 ETH, or $81,500.

“I helped with negotiations with interested bidders,” Tre told Decrypt via Twitter DM. “Just wanted to help make sure he was getting the right price the key deserved.”

Last week, the Web3 community UpDAO placed a bid for 690 WETH ($1.1 million at the time) on the asset. Later, meme site 9GAG placed a 999 ETH bid on the key, but was ultimately outbid by Weitsman, who currently sports a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT as his Twitter profile picture.

Weitsman may be best known for his scrap metal businesses and huge social media following, but the billionaire also likes cryptocurrency and started a cryptocurrency mining business, Viridium, in 2021.
