Unfortunately, it’s difficult for newcomers to know which possibilities are worth investigating. Thankfully, several NFT aggregator services can assist in offering a better understanding of these businesses.

Taking the industry by storm
An NFT aggregator is a platform that allows traders to trade NFT collections from different marketplaces without having to visit those marketplaces. Some NFT Aggregators like Gem and Genie took the industry by storm amid concerns about centralized marketplaces. But the former recorded some impressive stats.
According to data compiled by @sohwak on crypto data and insights platform Dune Analytics, Gem which only started seeing significant volume in January has already surpassed Genie, which was significantly active late last year.
“Gem, an NFT aggregator, is increasingly favored by investors. Its daily transaction count of 3,816 and a daily transaction amount of 5,363.32ETH. Gem has accumulated nearly 30,000 new addresses.”
