Despite the sales, Cuban’s wallet still holds a large number of NFTs, roughly 1600 items worth more than 1,900 ETH, or upwards of $6 million. Mark Cuban is renowned in the NFT arena for his advocacy of the industry and his strong position on the future of digital assets since 2021.

According to the Blur NFT marketplace data, BAYC led the pack with a double-digit drop of 22% in the last 30 days, shedding off $13.10 million as of June 18. The price of BAYC dropped significantly to historic lows of less than 10 ETH.
