What CryptoArt is Telling Us

Crypto Art Sales August 6th

CryptoArt sales are starting to increase slowly. So let’s quickly break it down:

  • June sold $16.18M
  • July has sold $20.9M
  • August has sold $10.75M

Art sales are picking up since last month and concurrently with the recent NFT boom. But compared to last March, unique art and 1/1 are outperforming open edition and multiple edition pieces. As of the last 7 days and for the first time in the last 12 months, SuperRare flipped Nifty Gateway on sales.


NFTs are obviously not dead, but you already knew that. The markets still look healthy but with an increase in FOMO in CryptoPunks and BAYC. So let’s see how sales develop in the next couple of weeks.
