As we already announced, Bitcoinist will follow Andy Milonakis NFT journey. And by doing that, we will cover everyone’s. Using this novel art collector’s tweets and videos, Bitcoinist will document a period in time. The NFT boom.

A Recap: What NFT Projects Are These Four Part Of?

These four acquisitions summarize Andy’s first few days in the NFT world.

The collections these belong to are: Gutter Cat Gang, Gutter Rats, Bored Ape Yacht Club, and CryptoBabyPunks.

After that, Milonakis gives this show his first video appearance. Sadly, it’s in annoying circumstances.

That’s one of the tragedies of being famous, too many gifts… with strings attached. In any case, Andy Milonakis handles it gracefully.

His First NFT-Focused Twitch Stream

Even though our hero isn’t as famous as he used to be, Andy Milonakis’ Internet presence has been constant. Twitch is one of his tools of the trade, using the livestreaming service he’s constantly in touch with his base. And now, he’s got a new topic to discuss… and a new sponsor.

The Internet loves Andy Milonakis, and he has over 600K followers on Twitch. It was a no-brainer for the Fast Food Punks to come as sponsors with a piece worth over $10K.

Apparently, the winner was a first-time NFT holder. Cheers to that person. The Fast Food Punks define themselves as “a parody” of the original CryptoPunks.

Andy Milonakis’ First NFT Sale

The people that weren’t lucky enough to experience “The Andy Milonakis Show” on MTV might not know this, but our hero is a very artistic person. He used archive.org’s Wayback Machine to explore his old website and found some drawings from a decade ago. This was one of them:

As you might suspect, Milonakis minted the picture of the drawing and it became his first-ever NFT. He created an Opensea account under the name iamnotverygood and tried to use his influences to get verified:

And twenty seconds after verification, Andy Milonakis sold his first NFT for a whole ETH. In a tweet, he said “IT FEELS GOOD TO BE A WASHED UP MTV STARR. I LOVE U. AND TRUST IM HERE TO STAY.” At the moment of writing, 1 ETH is worth over $3900.

Less than 20 minutes later, the iamnotverygood store had 15 unique items for sale:

A few hours later, Andy Milonakis sold out his first NFT collection. Total earnings: 7.5 ETH. That’s over $29K at today’s prices. In less than a day…

Of course, we could argue that Andy Milonakis’s been working towards this his whole life. That his previous successes and the work he’s put into staying relevant and in people’s heads for all this time is what let him leverage his fame into an artistic career. And we’d be right, an extremely talented non-famous person would have a hard time selling 7.5 ETH worth of NFTs in one day.

However, the fact remains. Andy Milonakis came, saw, and conquered.
