Last week, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) saw all-time sales pass the $40 billion mark. According to DappRadar, a massive $32.8 billion of those sales came from the OpenSea platform. A number of NFTs, such as Potatoz, CloneX, and Tracer NFT are on the rise.
- Potatoz allows you to stake your NFT and watch a seed grow into a potato with utility.
- CloneX surged toward the top ten in weekly sales with a metaverse-ready offering.
- Tracer NFT can reward a healthy lifestyle with move-to-earn sneakers.
Potatoz registered over $1.2 million in sales, with a 378% rise over the last seven days. Created in July 2022 by pop culture meme platform 9GAG, the Potatoz NFT collection is the gateway to a metaverse project named Memeland.
An investor buying one of the NFTs will discover it starts as a seed and grows through a staking mechanism to become a fully-fledged potato over 69 days. Each Potatoz NFT has utility in the ecosystem with private club membership, exclusive access to the creator NFT marketplace, exclusive IRL events, and privileges in upcoming drops from 9GAG.
This week, CloneX entered the top ten collections by sales with a 35% gain to almost $2.8 million at a floor price of around 8 Ether ($12,500).
The collection of 20,000 urban punk avatars is metaverse-ready with the ability to tap into accessories from RTFKT, a creator of virtual sneakers and fashion accessories, and other creators. Each NFT will give holders access to forging events where holders can mint new items for their characters. A further perk will be access to the RTFKT ecosystem and CloneX experiences.
RTFKT created CloneX in collaboration with renowned Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami. The avatars will be 3D rigged models, meaning they could be used as AR filters on camera, in Zoom meetings, or in games.
