OpenSea is the largest NFT marketplace in the world and recorded a volume increase of 542% over the last month, registering over half of its total lifetime trade volume of $2.423 billion during the period.
The growth comes at a time when crypto markets worldwide have been witnessing an upturn after a brief slowdown since April this year. Prices of

The first half of 2021 has seen NFTs being minted by pop star Katy Perry and rapper Jay-Z to the founder of the Internet, Tim Berners Lee. Lee tied up with auctioneers Sotheby’s back in June to sell the source code of the Internet. The auction eventually fetched over $5 million.

Indian NFT platform, Ratio, announced a cricket-based NFT service last week, while billion dollar football clubs from all over the world have also jumped into the space. As has the United States’ National Basketball Association (NBA).
In fact, NBA Top Shots follows OpenSea in the fourth spot for top NFT selling platforms in the world right now. The platform was launched less than a month ago, on August 4. DAppsRadar reports that the platform has handled $1.728 million in trade volumes over the past 24 hours alone, with seven-day volumes crossing $7 million.
OpenSea’s growth is a boon for the industry, which has been fighting to gain credibility in different countries. Experts have said that interoperability, scalability, authenticity and storage could be a problem for platforms in future. OpenSea supports the
