NFT Sales Roundup: CryptoPunk Sells For $493K

This week’s Boardroom NFT Sales Roundup includes DigiDaigaku, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Azuki, and more.

NFT sales are down globally, and fan token sales are sliding despite the current, crowded spot in the professional sports calendar. CryptoSlam’s data show that over 169,500 buyers spent more than $82.6 million on NFTs in the past seven days, which is down 3.5% compared to the previous week. Overall, NFT action is down 23%, with roughly 817,300 transactions. Projects like Sorare, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Azuki, and Gods Unchained brought in the most sales attention this week.

NFT sales and blockchain volume changes over the past week, per CryptoSlam:
  • Ethereum and Solana sales are down 49% and 17%, respectively. The Ethereum blockchain attracted $60.1 million in sales, which is $50 million more than Solana.
  • A new Ethereum-based NFT project called Noylings broke the top 10 in sales, bringing in $1.6 million after opening its mint on Oct. 13. The project features 7,777 clay-like characters that wear different shaped eyeglasses.
  • Immutable and Polygon sales are up 1.5% and 16%, respectively.
  • Fan token sales volume is down 15%, with the market bringing in $856.2 million. That number had previously hovered north of $1 billion.
