Shawn Yue’s NFT presale sets new world record, bags top position on OpenSea in short time

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continue to dominate the digital art space while changing the way we perceive assets. Riding this high tide is Hong Kong actor Shawn Yue as his latest NFT set a world record at an online auction.

Shawn Yue’s Zombieclub Token grabbed all the attention in the crypto world when the NFT reached the top on OpenSea within two hours and 42 minutes of going on presale on 15 March 2022.

Know more about Shawn Yue’s new record and other NFTs

Yue’s recently launched ZombieClub Token NFT went on presale at the marketplace at 9 pm on 15 March and made an incredible record by reaching the top position in such a short time.

Taking to social media, Yue thanked his team and community. He said, “Thank you to each and every one of the ZOMBIES who supported us. This is your accomplishment, I love you all! Remember, we don’t want to be proud, this is just the beginning for us, the four of us have our sights set on more, we are ready to charge out of Asia!”

According to media reports, Shawn held regular meetings and worked hard along with his team for almost half a year to plan and execute the launch of his NFTs. Juggling work and NFTs, Shawn is also a doting father who insists on spending quality time with his family.

Other NFT records

This is not the first time that the Monster Run actor has made headlines with his NFT collections. In 2021, he raised over HKD 121.6 million (SGD 21.1million) by selling 14 NFTs through an online auction. Among them was a Cryptopunk NFT, which earned him a whopping HKD 33.85 million (SGD 5.9 million).

For the uninitiated, a Cryptopunk series comprises 10,000 unique 24×24, eight-bit-style pixel art avatars and is considered to be one of the first major NFT projects. It was launched in 2017 and since its inception, each of its NFT is valued in millions.

Celebrities react to the NFT record

Yue received huge support from his celebrity friends after launching his NFTs. Noted names like Jay Chou, JJ Lin, Stephen Fung, Kai Ko and Eric Chou have talked about ZombieClub on their respective social media platforms.
