  • OpenSea Ethereum and OpenSea Polygon saw declines in sales volume, total NFTs traded, and the number of traders.
  • The general market saw a 9% growth in sales volume.

With $246 million recorded in NFTs sales volume so far this month, data from Dune Analytics showed that Ethereum-based NFTs recorded their lowest sales on OpenSea since the year started. 

As more users move away from speculative asset classes, OpenSea, the leading NFTs marketplace, continues to see a decline in its market volume and users count. 

Trouble in paradise

Per data from Dune Analytics, Ethereum-based NFTs worth $246 million have been traded on OpenSea this month. This figure represented a 23% decline from the $319 million recorded as sales volume for Ethereum NFTs on the marketplace in October and a 94% drop from the $4 billion recorded in January.
