Most Valuable NFTs Stem from Veefriends, BAYC, Cryptopunks, Cyberkong — Opensea Still Prompts the Most Amount of Sales by an NFT Marketplace. Veefriends' "Thoughtful Three Horned Harpik," which sold for 100,000 ether or $316 million, was the most expensive NFT sold. Following the Veefriends NFT, Cryptopunk 5822 sold for 8,000 ether, or $23.7 million.

Despite having sold billions of dollars worth of NFTs in recent weeks, NFT sales have been gradually falling. Weekly NFT trade volumes have decreased, and weekly NFT revenues have also decreased in recent weeks. It will be intriguing to observe how the NFT industry manages the slowdown if the crypto economy is genuinely in a bear market cycle.
