We’ve only been in the new year for a few days, and OpenSea is proving to be NFT’s open sea.
NFT marketplace announced that it had sold $243 million worth of collectibles based on blockchain technology. It features everything from Bored Apes (to CryptoPunks) and CryptoPunks (to name a few). The figure went up significantly during new year’s eve. It made $170million on January 1, and $124million on December 31, respectively.

OpenSea outperformed its competition. DappRadar’s data indicates that Rarible is the second largest platform. It processed $260 million worth of transactions in 2021.
Only a handful of niche collectors knew about the potential of NFTs last year. OpenSea, however, is only one company that has tapped into this rapidly growing market. OpenSea contributed more than 60 billion dollars ($14 billion) to the 20 billion NFT revenues in 2021.
Statistics from Dune Analytics, a free blockchain data analytics platform, shows that OpenSea’s daily trade volumes have exceeded $200 million for six of the ten days so far in 2022. OpenSea has the potential to surpass $2 billion worth of traded NFTs in 2022. Over $1.9 Billion in trade activity has been generated since 2022.

Bored Ape Yacht Club is the collection that OpenSea earned the most in 2021. Bored Apes was launched in April. Based on CryptoPunks original generative avatars (Crypunks), it started a new trend for NFT animal avatar projects. BAYC has seen a trading volume of about 280,000 ETH, or around $1.06 billion, since its launch, accounting for 6.3 percent of OpenSea’s total volume.
Although these collections command record prices, data suggests that there are two potential emerging markets: the Prime Ape Planet PAPs and Bored Ape Kennel Club. They will be tested over time, but they are making a significant contribution to an already thriving market with some amazing numbers.
