While Digging4doge may have been bored, he explained that he has a method to his boredom.
" I still have a trippy full set (#6083) which is like a grail piece & I bought the 2nd trippy I traded today for 190e 2 months ago to flip, he explained. "I had it listed for 250 on the trippy floor & nobody offered anything close, then it was listed for 300 when everything pumped & still didn’t sell... I claimed the land from it & got offered 2 apes for it today one being a 4t so I figured it would be easier to liquidate and give me more options & more airdrops in the future if I chose to HODL..plus higher end pieces are harder to sell & I can list the floor one @ 1.4x the floor and earn $looks rewards passively on looksrare .org"
