NFT Sales Roundup: The SandBox Drops $1M on a MoonBird

Last Updated: July 5, 2023
This week’s roundup also includes big NFT sales coming out of Bored Ape Yacht Club, Clone X, MeeBits, and more.

Popular NFT collections like Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, and Meebits still top the rankings in weekly sales, but some new players are looking to take over the game.

MoonBirds has been the biggest buzz in the NFT community since the project from PROOF Collective dropped on April 16. The collection includes 10,000 pixelated birds with quirky features. Moonbirds’ floor price on OpenSea is 32 ETH, or roughly $90,000. While selling a MoonBird for a quick profit might look appealing right now, holders should think hard about that because the longer a person holds a MoonBird, the more perks they get.

Looking at the overall NFT market in the past seven days, NonFungible reports that there have been about 31,000 NFT transactions, which includes sales, mints, and transfers. CryptoSlam’s NFT data shows that MAYC has attracted the most in sales over the past week, bringing in $93.2 million as of April 29. BAYC and MoonBirds topped the list, bringing in $83.4 million and $81.2 million in sales, respectively.
