CryptoArt is Growing Exponentially – A Data Rundown

While some people are trying to get their heads around collectibles such as NBA Top Shots, other groups of NFT investors and collectors are more focused on the CryptoArt scene, which continues to make new records daily. The best part of this new medium for art is that now is just the beginning of something revolutionary.

Let’s briefly zoom out and analyze the market so after that, we can look through the new top 10 artists (as the rankings are changing weekly) :

  • December 2020 sales were around $8.9M, with $7.3M of that volume with Nifty Gateway.
  • January 2021 sales were around $11.8M, just a shy 25% increase in a month, with Nifty Gateway having $8.72M of that volume.
  • February 2021 sales were around $91M, approximated 771% increase in just 30 days, with Nifty Gateway having $75M of that volume of 82%.

With the data presented above, we can see a clear trend in crypto art growth and Nifty Gateway being the dominant platform, with 82% of all the sales happening in the space. And this reminds us more and more that artists are migrating to the CryptoArt world every single day.
