It is the third week of the year, and it already feels like a long time. We had a huge market crash recently, LooksRare is doing crazy volume, and most people speculate a huge chunk of it is wash trading. There are even big people in sports like Neymar joining the NFT, and companies are starting to make some moves. OpenSea acquired a crypto company, Microsoft acquired a gaming company, and apparently, RadioShack, a dead U.S. company, is doing DeFi? Yes, nothing surprises me anymore; that’s why I prefer data analysis, less drama, and more concise information.
Let’s quickly look at the data.
Big Sales of the Week
**Most top sales were wash trades from LooksRare and are omitted here. We filtered the data as much as we could.

Markets are really down lately. Usually, at times like these is when you should reflect on your crypto strategy and, more importantly, focus your energy on building something. Maybe you are a developer, content creator, or are just trying to find your place in the crypto world. Just go ahead and take advantage of these less euphoric times and start contributing to the crypto community.
