Thanks to Artman for coming to an agreement with me.”
Following the deal, the Bored Ape Gazette asked OhhShiny what he traded Artman for the impressive ape. While OhhShiny declined to disclose the specific sum, he did say that it was valued “north of 400 Eth” in his opinion.

As Artman received Bored Ape #2488, OhhShiny received 425 Eth or $1,615,000 USD along with some amazing works of crypto art, including Beeple’s famous GigaChad.
“From the beginning, I knew this deal was going to be something special when @ARTMAN141 asked me if I was interested in art,” OhhShiny tweeted after the trade in January. “As some of you know, I'd spent a career in art before NFTs. Yes, I am interested in art! I love art, but what art could he own as special as my ape?!... It turns out, @ARTMAN141has a legendary collection. A collection that would be very hard to quantify in value. Filled with unique and editioned works by the best artists in the space. So, we began trading possibilities back and forth over what arrangement could possibly be made. In the end, we settled on a small treasure of @beeple's and @fewocious+ eth in exchange for what may be the most unique combo of traits in all of BAYC. I feel honored to have taken part in this and wish @ARTMAN141enjoys his collection in good health as I will with mine.”
