According to Dune Analytics, as of Jan. 11, monthly sales on the OpenSea marketplace are $2.21B, already more than half of the August 2021 numbers, a record month for the platform. It is safe to say that if the pace, which is largely attributed to the NFT hit, PhantaBear, does not slow down, January 2022 will break the August record of $3.43B.
The PhantaBear collection now tops the OpenSea rankings, with $54.46M worth of NFTs from this collection sold in the last 24 hours. In second and third place in the OpenSea rankings are the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Doodles collections, with $52.14M and $50.28M in volume respectively. In the last 24 hours, the volume of Doodles sold has dropped by almost 45%.
Another indicator by which OpenSea is actively gaining momentum is the number of active traders on the platform. Last month that figure reached an all-time high of 362,679 users, and this month it’s clearly looking to renew it – it’s not even mid-January yet, and the number of active OpenSea users has already reached 266,296, according to Dune Analytics.
