Although less popular than Ethereum, Solana’s NFT market has managed to attract a number of non-mixed token collectors. One of their favorite projects is DeGods, which is doing great on the Magic Eden market.
Last Monday, the latter was the scene of a special event in which a collector invested almost a million dollars to acquire 69 DeGods. The latter in particular bought all these NFTs at the same time, targeting those that were the lowest value within the collection.
Investment made to support the transition from DeGods to Ethereum
Known as Pokeee on Twitter, the NFT collector announced on 13 January that he would buy 69 Forever on the condition that his post gets 1,000 likes. Through this challenge sent to the project community, the investor wanted to financially support the migration from DeGods to Ethereum.
Launched in late 2021 by developer DeLabs, DeGods leads all Solana-based projects with 3.7 million SOL traded to date. Despite this great success, DeLabs announced last month that the project will be redirected to Ethereum to expand its fan base.
After getting more than 3,000 likes within 3 days, Pokeee has fulfilled its promise paying out $900,000 on January 16 to buy 69 DeGods. This group buy was perhaps thanks to Eden’s Sweep Magic function, which allowed the market for Pokeee to exceed the limit of 50 NFTs it had authorized.

A big collector of Bored Apes
Pokeee’s interest in DeGods is much greater with the latter knowing that there are several NFTs on the market that are highly sought after by the collector. He claims on his Twitter profile to be the owner of the popular Ethereum wallet Pokeee.ethereum.
This notably includes three of the most valuable NFTs from Bored Ape Yacht Club’s renowned collection, making it a whale of a project. The man who introduced himself to Magic Eden as the head of a private crypto fund confirmed that he is a big fan of NFTs, and that he intends to support DeGods in its rise.
He has just given proof of this with this huge investment that puts the project forward, and the NFT market attracts less crowds than before.
