Asian pop icon Jay Chou’s PhantaBear outperforms BAYC

Asian pop star Jay Chou has released a new NFT collection. The collectibles come with benefits and membership to the Ezek club. The 10,000 bears were sold out in less than 40 minutes. The project is expanding rapidly. In the last 24 hours, these Bears flipped BYAC in trading volume.

Volume records

These algorithmically-generated NFTs have flourished. According to NFTGo, in the last 24 hours, this project has grown by %20 in market cap. The project created a huge trading volume. Shortly, the wave of traders out-competed all the other NFT projects in the market. Over the last 24 hours, PhantaBear has created an immense trading volume.


The average price has risen rapidly. The initial price for minting a PhantaBear was 0.26 ETH. This is almost $1,000. The price has had a 20x boost since then. This has made enormous profits for many of the investors in a brief span.


The chart above displays the changes in floor and average price over time. You can see that Whales started to join the scene on January 7th. The transaction volume and frequency are increasing with average price and floor price.

Analyzing profits

We can analyze the ROIs by looking at the Unrealized Profits metric.

This metric indicates the unclaimed profits for every address by using this formula:

URP = Estimated value - Holding value

The estimated value of a portfolio is computed by multiplying the number of NFTs by the maximum value of the current floor and average prices.

Estimated value = max(avg, floor) * number of NFTs

Using these metrics, NFTGo can estimate the returns on investment for the top holders in the collection. You can see the latest chart here.

The chart above illustrates that a number of top holders have generated elevated returns by buying large quantities of the collection. The first place is accumulating almost 4% of the entire supply.

The chart below illustrates the relationship between liquidity and the number of transactions. We can see how the number of sales impacts liquidity.

Traders and holder trends drive liquidity. The enthusiasm people show for the project is the greatest indicator of the prices. The number of holders at first started with a subtle yet upward slope and was followed by a decrease on the 7th of January. But soon the project started to develop more rapidly as the number of traders started to ascend.

Holders in-depth

The community of PhantaBear holders is expanding. From NFTGo’s latest stats, the number of holders has increased to 5,096. The noteworthy gain is in the number of Whales entering the project. The project went from having just 7 Whales to 22.

The enlargement in Whale transactions can improve price and liquidity in the market. Whales tend to pay higher prices for the NFTs. This chart shows the estimated unrealized profit made by Whales.

But the value isn’t only for the top holders and Whales. Other holders own virtually 80% of the project's value.

By looking at the holding concentration charts, we can see how many people are buying higher numbers of PhantaBears.

We can see a trend that is predominantly present in other NFT avatar projects. 70% of the holders are holding only one NFT. While the majority are holding only one NFT, many of the holders are holding on to their PhantaBears. Despite the recent breakthrough in trading volume, the holders are staying with their NFTs. The other bigger piece of the pie chart is people holding the NFT for 1-7 days. This is followed by the rate of adoption growth we saw at the beginning of this section.

The rarest NFT was bought for 9 WETH. This NFT has some of the rarest attributes in the collection.

The second place has a very close rarity score to the first place. This Bear was sold on Jan 2nd for 20 ETH.
