Tonight, on The Andy Milonakis NFT Show: A series of fortunate events lead our hero to finally buy the Bored Ape he’s been craving for. And after that, he got a Cryptopunk. Milonakis is finally in the big leagues as a collector. But, how did he get there? It all started in the live minting that we covered in this show’s previous episode. The Bright Moments DAO hosted it, and they released this video that summarizes the whole thing and puts the event into perspective:

Now, Jamie Foxx, Tobbie Maguire, Danny Trejo, Lukas Haas, and the biggest celebrity of all, Andy Milonakis. It’s a shame the art looks like knock-off Cryptopunks, but that’s neither here nor there. The Bright Moments DAO has a few aces down its sleeves, as we’ll see later. First, though, let’s check the temperature with Andy’s own NFT collection.

Gas prices are through the roof and the NFT market seems saturated. However, this is Andy Milonakis we’re talking about here. His collection is going to sell in a matter of hours. Just look at what this creative genius did in his spare time.

This joke references Bleeple’s “Human One,” which sold for almost $29M through auction house Christie’s. And the artist himself answered Milonakis tweet, because he knows what’s up.

Creature World Amusement Park

Always active in the NFT space, Andy went to the Creature Playground. The people behind the Creature World NFT collection and Open Sea produced the event. This is the poster.

Milonakis met the artist, Danny Colee.

And brought us this visual journalistic report.

This is another part of the playground and some of the merch available.

How Milonakis Won And Sold A Tyler Hobbs

The artist behind the Fidenza NFTs has a new collection. Tyler Hobbs uses code to produce his pieces and has been incredibly successful with it. The “Incomplete Control” collection consists of only 100 pieces, and the Bright Moments DAO gave away one. Everyone who had a Cryptonewyorker had a ticket to the raffle. Guess who won.

After paying 15 ETH for a Golden Token, Milonakis had a choice to make. Option A.- Wait and mint the Tyler Hobbs piece. Option B.- Sell the winning ticket and go in an NFT buying frenzy. Guess what he did.

The selling of the Golden Token was an adventure in itself. 

However, in the end, Andy sold it for 80 ETH. That’s roughly $368K at the time of writing.

What Did Andy Buy With The Loot?

He started with a Cool Cat that’s wearing the same shirt that Milonakis had in a promotional photo for his MTV show.

Then, Andy finally joined the Bored Ape Yacht Club. This is something he’s been craving since the “indecent NSFW proposal” from Episode 5.

And then, he got the Holy Grail. A Cryptopunk.

To finish the shopping spree, Milonakis got his second Baby Kongz

In total, he spent about 50 ETH. Almost all of his earnings.

Let’s close this episode in a wholesome way. With Andy thanking the Bright Moments DAO and saying, “I hope one day to hold something from Tyler Hobb’s as well, but that sale got me a bunch of stuff.” And with Milonakis thankfully receiving this phenomenal fan art that he got.

This episode was all about Andy Milonakis the collector. Will we premiere Milonakis’ own NFT collection on the next one? Keep your eye on Bitcoinist to find out.
