NFT digital horse game Zed Run had a staggered drop on Friday as the retail prices for horses skyrocketed from last month’s drop.
The price for the most coveted horses, the Z1 Nakamoto, was $37,112, up 130% from the drop on April 2, when the Z1 Nakamoto could be had for $16,118.
Those who couldn’t afford, or click fast enough to get the best, had a choice of nine other different types of genesis, first generation horses, of which there are a limited edition of 38,000.
The lowest class of horse, the Buterins, ranged in price from $123 to $623. The next class up, the Finneys, ranged from $1,510 to $3,800. The Szabos went from $6,500 to $13,643, and the Z2 Nakamoto could be had for $19,597 — a huge jump from the $7,200 cost last month.
Despite the staggered drop, clicking on horses and buying them was difficult on Friday as the game that allows people to make real money by selling, breeding and racing horses has picked up steam.
On the March 19 drop, there were roughly 400 stables on the platform. There are now more than 70,000.
Those looking to buy horses with cool names weren’t disappointed on Friday. The dropped featured horses with NBA player nicknames, including Chef Curry, Round Mound of Rebound, Dame D.O.L.L.A., Big Shot Rob and Ice Trae.
