Minecraft Creator Buys Rare Aphex Twin Vinyl for Over $46,000
As the web was recently shook by the $46,300 sale of test pressing of Aphex Twin's "Caustic Window," it has now turned out that the buyer is none-other than Markus Persson, the creator of massively-popular "Minecraft."

As Factmag reports, the initial fundraiser for the album's release has gathered $67,424, just to have over 100 people bid on it on eBay.

"So I kinda paid a lot for a double LP from the '90s," Persson tweeted soon after the purchase.


"He's a really cool guy, and didn’t even consider the charity aspect when buying it (but was really happy to hear that half is going to charity) - he's been an Aphex fan since he was young," James "Joyrex" Thomas, the man behind the original Kickstarter campaign, stated. "My daughter was blown away that the guy who made the game she endlessly plays bought a record off her dad for 46k."

The album can be streamed below, make sure to give it a listen and let us know if it's worth the figure.
