August is shaping up to be a record month for nonfungible token sales with almost $900 million spent on them over the past 30 days.To get more news about ENJ, you can visit official website.
According to data from the tracking portal Nonfungible, $896 million has been spent on NFTs over the past 30 days. The number is very likely to exceed $900 million by the end of the month marking a new record for the burgeoning industry.
The number is more than triple the previous best month for NFT sales in May when $255 million were sold. August has seen sales skyrocket and it has been largely down to CryptoPunks and Axie Infinity.
According to Cryptoslam, a record $397 million in CryptoPunk sales have occurred so far this month. The average sale price for the pixelated punks is a whopping $214,000. One of the most expensive ones ever sold was number 7523, a rare alien punk wearing a face mask that went for a whopping $11.5 million in a Sothebys auction in June.
Earlier this week, credit card giant Visa announced that it had purchased its own CryptoPunk for 49.5 ETH, worth just under $150,000 at the time of purchase. Head of crypto at Visa Cuy Sheffield said:
"With our CryptoPunk purchase, were jumping in feet first. This is just the beginning of our work in this space."
Chinese industry outlet Wu Blockchain reported that Chinese investors are buying up CryptoPunks like proverbial hotcakes. Cai Wensheng, the founder of smartphone software firm Meitu, splashed out on CryptoPunk 8236 with 125 ETH, roughly $387,000.
Meitu was one of the first publicly traded companies in China to bet big on cryptocurrencies, purchasing $100 million in Bitcoin and Ethereum earlier this year.
NFTs have also been driving the adoption of the staking cryptocurrency Tezos. According to a blog post earlier this year, Tezos NFT platforms have proven to be attractive for artists due to low transaction fees and a more energy-efficient proof-of-stake consensus mechanism favored by eco-conscious artists.

Hello everyone! I like how lately, everyone has become more interested in NFT and cryptocurrency. It is a fascinating subject if you want to earn large sums of money and invest for a more extended period. If you are an artist and can't sell your works, it is really recommended to start posting your works as an NFT. The possibility of selling something and increasing your sales is higher. If you don't know where to start, I can suggest a financial Bible that could help you understand that world better. If you click on this website you'll find many articles about finance, and some of them can bring light to your mind. Wishing you all good luck!
