This week’s NFT Sales Roundup includes Mutant Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, and more.

CryptoSlam’s data shows that over 193,000 buyers spent more than $150 million on NFTs in the past seven days. That’s up 17% compared to the previous seven days, with projects like CryptoPunks and Art Blocks dominating sales.

Here are some percent changes in NFT sales and blockchain volume, per CryptoSlam:

  • Ethereum did $127.5 million in sales, up 21% compared to the past seven days.

CryptoPunks brought in $25.4 million, and BAYC only sold about half of that, with $13.4 million as of July 15. Art Blocks and Mutant Ape Yacht Club brought in $7.5 million and $6.4 million, respectively
