Rare NFT by Bored Ape Yacht Club on show at Portrait of an Era, HOFA Gallery 

The show promises rare glimpses of six Sealed CryptoPunks printed as unique lithographs and signed by Larva Labs Co-Founder, John Watkinson. The ‘Sealed’ prefix refers to these rare works being accompanied by a special wax-sealed envelope containing the 12-word ‘seed phrase’ which grants ownership and irrevocable access to the NFTs online. 

Only 24 Sealed CryptoPunks of this kind ever made. With five having recently been auctioned by Sotheby’s London, four set to be auctioned this month by Christie’s Hong Kong, and the rest in private collections, ‘Portrait of an Era’ will be a chance-in-a-lifetime to see the six Punks exhibited together at HOFA Gallery.
