    Metaverse and NFT Steam Continues to Produce High-Quality and Expensive Collectibles

    The metaverse and non-fungible token (NFT) excitement has remained high in the final month of the year. Decentraland and The Sandbox have handled a large number of sales in the recent week.

    According to seven-day sales figures, The Sandbox made $19.3 million, while Decentraland made $6.6 million. According to 30-day sales figures, Decentraland’s $28 million in revenue is about 200 percent higher than the previous month.

    While Opensea experienced a 22.88 percent increase in sales this month, Solana’s Magic Eden marketplace saw an 86.9 percent increase in monthly sales of $148.86 million. Superrare’s 30-day sales of $26 million increased its value by 15% since last month.

    Atomicmarket, a Wax blockchain NFT marketplace, saw $38.96 million in sales, a 73 percent decrease. Rarible’s NFT market sales fell 4.5 percent last month, totaling $18.27 million. Foundation’s monthly sales were $10.38 million (down 11.94 percent), while Aavegotchi’s sales were $5.78 million (down 35 percent ).

    Despite online conversations about Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT floor pricing rising just above Cryptopunk (CP) NFT floor values, the greatest sale this month was Cryptopunk #4156, which sold for 2.5K ETH or $10.35 million at the time of sale.

    Furthermore, Cryptopunk #9953, which sold for 399.69 ETH or $1.57 million, was the sixth-largest sale this month. While CP floor pricing are slightly higher than BAYC floor prices, they are almost equal at 52 to 53.5 ether per NFT. At the time of writing, CP’s daily media price (56 ETH) is greater than BAYC’s daily median value (55 ETH).

    This month’s most expensive BAYC sale was Bored Ape Yacht Club #9452, which sold for $1.42 million or 347 ether. Furthermore, four weeks earlier, Bored Ape Yacht Club #9449 sold for 285 ether, or $1.17 million.

    While five CPs were among the top 15 most costly NFT sales this month, only two BAYCs were among the top 15. Another major transaction in the recent 30 days was the acquisition of Axie Infinity #1157920892 for 550 ETH, or $2.33 million. In the last 30 days, the top 15 NFT sales totaled $41.56 million.
