OpenSea, non-fungible token marketplace transaction volume reached a new high of almost US$326 million, a 119% increase from a historic high achieved in June.

The Crypto Art World

Throughout history, from the Greek statues and the Renaissance painters to conceptual art, art was only a part of the physical world. This idea of existence gives art its value. In the actual world, there can only be one unique sculpture or painting. People can buy a print of any artwork at the Louvre in Paris, but they’ll never own the actual masterpiece.

A few years ago, anyone could take any digital image and replicate it. This time, it was impossible to determine who owned the original image.

However, blockchain technology changed this situation. It enables us to encode a digital object with ownership data.

That means the art will move to the digital world, a place where people will spend more time.

The Rise Of Nft Mania

OpenSea, founded in 2017, is considered the world’s first and largest digital marketplace for non-fungible tokens and crypto collectables.
