The 10k Club began after the first popular ENS digits club the ENS 999 club got minted out in March of 2022. In an interview with the Hedgehog Blog ENS influencer, Daniel Got Hits, explained how the 10k Club started. "As soon as they [the 999 club] minted out, people were like — okay fuck it we're going to mint it out all the way to 10k [0000.eth to 9999.eth]. I was like, 'you guys are insane, that's never going to happen'. It took years for the [first] 999 to sell out!". "[But,] the 10k sold out in about a day and a half. I couldn't believe it."  
The ENS marketplace ens.vision was one of the first marketplaces to adopt and support the 10k club with its own category on the site. Other marketplaces which offer support for the category include Gem.xyz.
