Punks, Fidenza, Rocks, Penguins, Apes, Parallel Cards, Art Blocks, 0N1 Force, and lots of other collectibles and CryptoArt are taking the spotlight at the moment. But there is something bigger going on in the metaverse, and that’s Axie Infinity.
It’s doing close to $200M per week on transactions and is close to raking in $1B a month. Still, the biggest news that I saw the other day is that there are more Filipinos with a Ronin wallet than credit cards doing transactions using Axie’s $SLP and buying stuff from merchants. That’s big for the metaverse; people are using in-game currency on real-life transactions.
In other news, OpenSea is still killing us daily with those big gas fees.

What CryptoArt is Telling Us
We added Hen to our CryptoArt sales data thanks to a recommendation from TheArtMarket, a Spanish art marketing agency. So let’s quickly break it down for perspective:
- July has sold $20.9M
- August has sold $65.58M
We clearly see sales numbers increasing in different markets, with SuperRare really close to NiftyGateway sales, so there is currently a huge interest from collectors in 1/1 pieces. Some interesting pieces picking up traction from early March are Pak cubes and Trevor Jones BTC Angel. Even new artists are doing well in this market.
Markets are pretty euphoric, but you can see the long-term trend of the metaverse creating a strong culture around their users and with more people exchanging digital assets for real-life services, it is just a matter of time until we as humans spend most of our time interacting with 3D (metaverse) instead of 2D (Facebook, Instagram) services.
