• A bored ape whale collector, under the pseudonym “Pokee”, has recently bought 69 DeGods NFTs in one bulk purchase, spending close to $1 million.
• The purchase was made using a tool that allows buyers to ‘sweep the floor’ and purchase any amount of NFTs from a project.

A bored ape whale collector under the pseudonym „Pokee“ recently made a huge purchase of 69 DeGods NFTs, spending close to $1 million in the process. The purchase was made using a tool that allows buyers to ’sweep the floor‘ or purchase any amount of NFTs from a project. Pokee initially promised to sweep the 69 NFTs after his tweet got 1,000 likes, and the tweet garnered almost 3,000 likes at the time of writing.
Pokee, in an interview, explained that his goal with the investment was to bridge them to Ethereum. He added that he could not invest more of his wealth into Solana due to on-chain dangers, but that he had been having fun in Solana on little NFTs and mints. He claims that he controls a private crypto fund and owns Pokeee.eth wallet that safely keeps three valuable Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs and other NFT collectibles.
Magic Eden initially allowed only a maximum purchase of 50 NFTs, but Pokee requested them to increase the swipe option to 69 NFTs, claiming that a 50 NFTs limit is „of ultimate inconvenience“. Later, Magic Eden updated the sweep functionality to allow a larger mass sweep of NFTs.
DeGods & Solana’s trading volume has increased since the purchase. DeGods launched in summer 2020 and is a decentralized digital asset trading platform based on Solana blockchain. It has already gained massive popularity among crypto traders, and the purchase by Pokee will only serve to further increase the trading volume on the platform.
Pokee’s purchase is a great example of the power of NFTs and their potential to revolutionize the world of digital asset trading. It is also a testament to the potential of the Solana blockchain, which is proving to be a viable option for digital asset trading. With more and more whales investing in DeGods and Solana, it’s only a matter of time before the platform becomes a major player in the digital asset trading space.
