The non-fungible token market continues to heat up with strong sales volume on OpenSea, an NFT marketplace for buying and selling items.
A waitlist for the highly anticipated Coinbase Global Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) NFT marketplace has more than 2.5 million people signed up, which could increase the valuation and demand for NFT projects. Coinbase announced several partnered NFT projects last week, which led to increased valuations of particular NFTs.
Every week, Benzinga takes a look at the top ten NFT projects by sales volume. This week saw six projects gain in sales volume, three decline and one new project join the list.
