OpenSea dazzling data

Why are so many organizations so Fomo to NFT? Opensea’s explosion in August may provide the answer.

We can intuitively see the outbreak of OpenSea from the data analysis created by user rchen8 on Dune.

As can be seen from the above figure, Opense’s transaction volume began to grow in June, with a transaction volume of 150 million U.S. dollars in June, a doubled to 326 million U.S. dollars in July, and a nearly 10-fold increase in August. It is indeed NFT summer.

2. Opensea earns $200 million a month
