Last week, the NFT Meebits collection was the main competitor in terms of NFT sales and still is this week. Over the past seven days, Meebits recorded sales of $1.9 billion, up 104.40% from last week.

Terraforms saw sales of $1.2 billion last week up more than 298%, and Loot saw $468 million up 79% from last week. Cryptophunks V2 sales increased by 88% this week and Azuki NFT sales increased by over 141%. Collections that were once the main competitors in terms of NFT sales like Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) have seen their sales plummet. BAYC’s sales have fallen more than 34% in the past seven days.

Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) sales were up over 4%, but the MAYC collection slipped to the tenth largest NFT compilation after being a top five contender. Additionally, The Sandbox NFT’s sales were down over 31% after the metaverse project surged significantly two weeks ago.

Overall, NFT markets and sales have managed to avoid the crypto market carnage that crypto assets have been experiencing lately. These funds, although lower in value, still buy NFTs in large numbers and the billion dollar NFT industry remains profitable.
