CryptoPunks was launched in the year 2017 by a company called Larva Labs that was owned by a couple of skilled developers named Matt Hall and John Watkinson. At first they have started this as a fun project with a main objective to entertain the people, but later this project has transformed into a serious NFT project in the cypto industry.
During the project launch, the famous NFT standard ERC721 doesn’t even exist, hence the developer duo used ERC20 token standard to create CryptoPunks. In this process, the developer team has modified the standard ERC20 in order to produce these CryptoPunks as non-fungible items. Several believe that this is the starting point for the development of ERC721 token standard.
