Why are NFT whales fascinated by the number 8?
Last week, we saw a wave of trades in the irreplaceable tokens or NFT market, all of which were somehow related to the number 8. CryptoPunk 8888 was sold at Atrium 888.8 and an EtherRock was sold at 888. In addition, 64 new CryptoPunks are on sale for Atrium 888, and the CEO of Meitu Software bought CryptoPunk 8236. Why is the number 8 so attractive to NFT market whales?
According to one theory, Chinese investors are fascinated by the number 8, which they believe is a magic number pronounced “Fa” (發) in Chinese indigenous culture, meaning “wealth and prosperity.” Other numbers that are very popular in Chinese culture are the numbers 1314 and 520, which mean “this eternal life” and “I love you”, respectively.
