The Weekly Rundown – NFT Sales August 14-20 2021

This last week FOMO was getting high in the space, and we have seen some projects’ retracements to new lows, while others are doing great. But from our top 4 collectibles in the last 7 days, Bored Ape Yacht Club and Punks were replaced by Parallel Alpha and Pudgy Penguins on the rankings.

Gas has been crazy for a while, and OpenSea is still one of the biggest ETH burners.

What CryptoArt is Telling Us

Crypto Art Sales Analysis Aug 20

CryptoArt sales are rapidly bouncing up. So let’s quickly break it down:

  • June sold $16.18M
  • July has sold $20.9M
  • August has sold $26.09M

Art sales are now stronger than ever, and with the SuperRare token launch, people can get exposure to 1/1 of art and the CryptoArt industry without buying specific pieces.


Markets seem to be heating up a bit, but Christie’s has some auctions in the upcoming month, so that could be an interesting catalyst. Let’s see what happens.
