TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leading North American blockchain development firm, Blockchain Foundry Inc. (“BCF” or the “Company”) (CSE:BCFN) is pleased to announce that its LastKnown.com (“LastKnown”) NFT marketplace has sold out its first NFT public sale, Chairman Ting’s Billion Buns NFTs, in less than one minute.
Chairman Ting’s Billion Buns NFTs are composed of 888 unique “Buns”. The sale began with a 24 hour private presale on Monday, January 10, 2022, in which more than half the collection sold despite excessive Ethereum network fees. After the public sale began on Tuesday, the remaining Buns were sold in approximately 48 seconds. Today, the NFTs will be revealed to the LastKnown community at 11 AM EST. The collection is now only available on the secondary market at https://opensea.io/collection/billionbuns and will be available on LastKnown’s secondary market when it launches later this year.
“On Monday, for the whitelist, we sold over 64% of the collection. Then, before I could catch my breath, the public sale sold out in 48 seconds flat. I’m super thankful for the success of my first NFT drop. I couldn’t have done it without the incredible help provided by the LastKnown.com team!” said Chairman Ting.
“Interest in LastKnown continues to exceed our expectations, and we are thrilled to have sold out 100% of all Billion Buns NFTs for our first official drop. We are looking forward to repeating the success we had with our first drop, and we have prepared a great line-up of 10+ quality artists already interested in releasing exclusive collections on the platform. We look forward to sharing news about upcoming artists next week,” said Dan Wasyluk, CEO of Blockchain Foundry.
