As the actual utility of Non Fungible Token (NFTs) projects comes under intense scrutiny, recent data suggests dwindling interest in the space. Especially in comparison to the explosive growth and attention the NFT space saw last year. The rug pulls, scams, and more importantly, the cryptocurrency bloodbath, have all led to falling interest in the space.

Opensea, the world’s most popular NFT marketplace, appeared to have recorded new lows last month when compared to its performance in April. Opensea Ethereum and Opensea Polygon noted a crippling decline in performance last month in comparison to what was recorded in April. 

Let’s take a look at recent data from Dune Analytics.
