The most bizarre NFT artist of our time, PAK, has revealed “his” real identity. Federico Calpis is presumably one of the names behind Pak, whose controversial personality is speculated as an individual or a team, we can’t really say.
Federico Clapis, a digital artist using his Twitter ID, claimed to be Pak. Many even believe it to be true, as both Pak and Clapis have strikingly similar ways when it comes to showcasing their creations.
After the tweets, news reports started surfacing and one of them was retweeted by Pak..
NFT collectors can’t get enough of Pak’s inventive NFT creations for what they are. Pak’s fan base has even elevated him to the top tier of the list above most expensive NFTs ever sold.
His latest projects, LostPoets, and the Merge project have raised over $200 million, which is a remarkable feat in the NFT space.
Money aside, what these two projects achieved was a loyal and dedicated community whose massive support outlived the NFT projects themselves. LostPoets had sold a total of 65536 NFTs in one day, while Merge had been the most impactful NFT project, as it sold over 25,000 mass or m tokens.

Who is PAK?
PAK is a programmer, digital artist and cryptocurrency creator. The identity of Pak had always been anonymous.
However, with the latest incident, Clapis may be PAK, as he himself has been known to use multiple identities for various projects. Unlike PAK, however, he has been accommodating and straightforward with his identity.
Nevertheless, Federico Clapis is known in Italy for using different identities as part of his performances. If you’ve been a fan of Pak for a long time, this fact will definitely ring a bell.
Clapis became an active NFT artist shortly after PAK entered the NFT space. He is also known to reward his collectors who have invested in him, similar to PAK, and has a strategic approach to the market.
While this isn’t the first time someone has claimed to be Pak, his latest project, Carbon, is a collaboration with several artists and celebrities, including pop star Paris Hilton, who is also currently making headlines.
Out of nowhere, she also lambasted everyone and claimed she was Pak in a tweet, making the whole facade more suspicious.
Although there is so much ambiguity about who Pak really is, we can entertain the fact that Frederic Clapis’s revelation is true to some extent. But then again, Pak’s Twitter bio is a constant reminder of “The Nothing” if not everything.
