NFTs like it’s been raining –
Internet Computer Price (ICP) users, if you want to get your NFT inspired by 90s hip-hop music duo Insane Clown Posse (acronym: ICP), and the first ICPunk NFT, don’t miss the Wednesday, September 8 at 8pm UTC.
A quick look back at the history of Internet Computer Price (ICP)
For starters, Internet Computer Price was founded in 2015, and has grown through fundraising to a total of $195 million. Now under the leadership of the Dfinity Foundation, the ICP token allows its users to create apps, websites, or any other digital service such as social networks. And since last May
, it is an understatement to say that the ICP token has been the talk of the town! Remember, just 5 days after its launch, the ICP token had briefly become the 4th largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization.

Moreover, during its listing on Coinbase the ICP could be bought at $630 while on Binance the offers went up to almost $3,
At the same time, on the HitBTC exchange ICP peaked at around $407. These huge price differences, across multiple exchanges, are not common in cryptocurrency listings.
These impressive disparities find some semblance of explanation in the fact that the ICP token, upon launch, was listed simultaneously on all major cryptocurrency exchange platforms. And while the phenomenon was spectacular, it also demonstrated all the volatility unique to ICP trading.

This unprecedented launch was consciously orchestrated by Dfinity in order to make the ICP token known to the maximum number of traders. The other big surprise reserved by the ICP token is the presence of major intentional players, such as Andreessen Horowitz
a venture capital fund, particularly invested in cryptocurrencies.
The NFT race is on
It’s no secret that non-fungible tokens (NFTs)
will continue to be the
talk of the town in 2021. They even broke all records last July, generating more than 3 billion dollars
in sales. So it is easy to understand why Dfinity wants to position itself in the NFT market.
The foundation has announced the issuance of 10,000 NFTs, which will be available to PKI users. However, due to early releases, only 3,000 NFTs would still be available. With a limit of one non-fungible token per user, these users will have to claim their NFTs at the time of their release scheduled for next Wednesday at 20:00 UTC.
