Steve Aoki recently bought an NFT Azuki, now he is questioning whether his infamous ‘Aoki Curse’ is real or not. Previously, people have questioned this curse in the past. Apparently, there is a tendency for floors to drop around the time DJ Steve Aoki takes over the collection for some reason.
Will the Aoki curse continue?
The Aoki curse has made the rounds on Twitter on a few occasions where the world famous DJ has purchased an NFT from a large collection. Some notable examples include Moonbirds, his investment in Yuga Labs, 3Landers, Moonbirds and more (note, prices didn’t all drop after his purchases, and some examples include people questioning whether or not this would happen).
Recently, Steve Aoki bought the Moonbirds collection, whose popularity grew in the last month to an all-time high, before dropping.
Now, Aoki has bought an Azuki NFT for 23.98 ETH last night. People are certainly concerned, which may be reasonable, or maybe actually reasonable. The purchase was about 19 hours ago, and the current low price is 23 ETH. In the last 24 hours, Azuki’s floor price is down 7.11% in the last 24 hours, the time that included Aoki’s purchase.
What is Azuki?
Azuki is a popular premium NFT collection that was created in February of this year. Its core collection, titled simply “Azuki,” has a minimum price of 23 ETH. It once peaked at 31.5 ETH. Their secondary collection, BEANZ, has a minimum price of 3.6 ETH, and this morning they announced a partnership with Ledger.
Azuki has over 305,000 Twitter followers, and 129,000 Discord members. Some of his famous followers include Pranksy, FaZe Banks, and of course Steve Aoki.
The full collection and its secondary collection have gained a lot of hype since its release. Undoubtedly, they have become one of the biggest and most popular NFT collections.
