Riley was a seasoned investor who understood the significance of buying fresh NFTs just before the crypto markets began a new bull market. Thus, he used wrapping, a well-known method for borrowing money, to get a loan against CryptoPunk #685.
Due to Riley’s inexperience with wrapping NFTs, the asset was delivered to a burn address, thereby eliminating it from circulation forever. Crypto Twitter users speculated that the NFT collector must have big resources, but Riley dispelled that notion by saying he had borrowed money to buy CryptoPunk #685.
