BlockPunk is NOT a cryptocurrency.
All content on BlockPunk are limited edition digital copies or collectibles. The real-world analogy for a cryptocurrency is dollars or pounds; a digital collectible’s real world analogy is closer to assets like Blu-Ray box sets, baseball cards, fine art or live experiences like concerts.
As dictated by the smart contract, any BlockPunk content you own belongs to you, although you do not have the commercial rights and the intellectual property still belongs to the original creator. Like any piece of merchandise you can own, the market price is determined by demand, scarcity, and your asking price.
Again, please note that buying a digital collectible does not equate to owning the copyright of the creation. The copyright will always belong to the original creator.
