Crypto foot fetish? Pixelated Feetpix NFTs Surge

Fear not, cryptocurrency-weary souls who see no end to their suffering in sight—purportedly erotic pixelated foot pictures are here, and they may have saved the day.

Feetpix (or, an NFT collection consisting of 10,000 extremely simple images of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite pendant, has taken crypto by storm, soaring ahead of Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and other blue-chip NFT staples to become the 5 .the most traded collection on the OpenSea NFT market on Tuesday.

The project has generated 640 ETH—about $855,000—in trading since its debut three days ago, with most of that volume coming in the last 24 hours alone. Feetpix was initially free to mint. The lowest price of the collection has since jumped to 0.135 ETH, or around $180. So far, the collection has more than 16,000 transactions.

What’s driving the cryptocurrency craze? Any secret pedicure benefits? Membership in a travel-focused DAO? Utility tokens that unlock a treasure trove of scandalous shoeless polaroids? No, no and no.

“0 plans, 0 promises, 0 marketing, 0 paid influencers,” Feetpix tweeted this morning. “One shared love for feet.”

The collection is neither more nor less than what it presents itself as: an opportunity to “satisfy your deepest and darkest fantasies”, as the description of the OpenSea collection reads. Feetpix is ​​simple Web pagewhich offers several answers to curious shoppers, is matched to a rhythmic dance number of echoing moans.

Feetpix’s rarity is based on attributes that include accessories such as socks, cigarettes, and panties, nail polish color variations, and skin colors including white, tan, brown, tan, and “normal” — a skin color that appears to be a variation of white.

As soon as Feetpix started climbing the NFT leaderboard on Tuesday, Crypto Twitter couldn’t look away. Perhaps these feet were no mere receptacle for lumpen socks, but instead something beautiful, shapely, electric: a sign of the end of the NFT bear market.

Many Twitter users hailed the project’s success as an indication that “degen season” — the glory days of high-risk crypto trading — is back.

The NFT market, which saw $25 billion in trading volume in 2021, crashed after the start of the last crypto winter in May. By the end of 2022, sales had fallen some 88%.

The absurdity and bare (barefoot?) uselessness of Feetpix reminded many of the earlier era of NFTs, when seemingly pointless collections often grew to incredible values.

Whether or not the hype and excitement fueled by these 10,000 pairs of feet will be able to revive the struggling NFT market is uncertain. The mysterious creators of Feetpix, for their part, mocked the sudden success of their own project, berating Feetpix wearers for showing clear signs of sexual deviance.

Not crazy about feet? There is also a very similar collection of on OpenSea, which offers much lower sales volume and the lowest price, but does not have the “normal” skin attribute.
