Dune Analytics says that the number of Ethereum-based NFTs sold on OpenSea in a single month reached its highest level since May.
Since the beginning of December, 696,908 Ethereum-based NFTs have been sold on OpenSea. At the time of this writing, the total monthly sales volume was $1.2 billion. This index, which has seven days left until the end of 2022, shows that sales have gone up by 74% since November, when they were worth $253 million.
It’s interesting to see that the $1.01 billion in daily sales reported on December 24 made up 84% of the $1.2 billion in total monthly sales of Ethereum-minted NFTs on OpenSea so far this month.
In reality, Ethereum-made NFTs were sold on OpenSea for less than $20 million over a few months.
Last week, OpenSea’s sales volume went up by 4%, but predictions for the top marketplace’s monthly sales volume pointed to a drop.
Dune Analytics says that the number of monthly sales on the OpenSea marketplace has dropped by 95% since April and may reach its lowest level ever in June 2021.
