Dookey Dash Golden Key Sold for $1.6M
Twitch streamer Kyle Jackson, who is better known by his pseudonym Mongraal, recently sold his winning Dookey Dash key for 1,000 ETH (about $1.6 million). The one-of-one „Golden Key“ was earned by receiving the highest score on Yuga Labs‘ skill-based NFT game Dookey Dash last month.
Unlock Power Source with Golden Key
Dookey Dash pass holders can use their pass to summon their „Power Source“ on March 8th. Many have dabbled in the game but Mongraal was the only person able to earn the Golden Key. After receiving numerous offers from organizations like UPDAO and 9GAG, he eventually agreed to sell it for 1,000 ETH to Adam Weitsman of Upstate Shredding via OpenSea.
Royalties Paid to Yuga Labs
Mongraal has promised that royalties will be paid in full to Yuga Labs despite not selling the key at its initial asking price of 2222 ETH ($3.6 million). It is currently unclear how much these royalties will amount to or what they will be used for.
Largest Sale Yet?
The sale of this Dookey Dash key could be one of the largest digital art sales yet recorded and serves as an example of how powerful games built on Ethereum can be when combined with nonfungible token technology and creative monetization strategies from companies like Bored Ape Yacht Club/Yuga Labs.
This sale further highlights just how lucrative NFTs are becoming in today’s market and sets a precedent for other developers looking into deploying their own skill based games built on Ethereum’s blockchain technology.
