The teen Fortnite pro who won Yuga Labs’ Dookey Dash competition has sold his prize, a one-off Golden Key NFT, for 1000ETH (about $1.6 million) to a billionaire scrap metal dealer from New York.
UK gamer Mongraal – real name Kyle Jackson – announced Monday’s OpenSea sale on Twitter.
“I have agreed to sell the key for 1000ETH to @AdamWeitsman,” the 18-year-old posted.
“Super nice guy and thrilled the sale went through with him.”
Adam Weitsman is the owner and CEO of Upstate Shredding-Weitsman Recycling. His Twitter profile picture is one of Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs.
Jackson initially listed the winning key for sale on OpenSea for more than $3 million.
He said royalties from Monday’s sale would be paid in full, meaning Yuga will collect 5% of the purchase price.
Jackson, who has 2.1 million followers on Twitter and more than 5.4 million on Twitch, denied he was paid to play Dookey.
He said he used his own Sewer pass, the game key given to those who owned a BAYC NFT.
