OpenSea’s Single-Day Transaction Volume Surpasses 3-Month Record High of $260M

The world’s largest NFT marketplace, OpenSea, hit a three month record trading volume of over $260 million on the 9th of January. The platform’s all-time high, however, was reached in August 2021 at $322 million in transactions.

On the same day, OpenSea announced plans to improve the site’s reliability and support. The company will be expanding its engineering team to more than 200 professionals, re-developing core parts of the platform, and reducing customer support times.

OpenSea has already generated $2 billion in NFT sales this year, and received $300 million in funding.

The most successful projects on the marketplace have been Bored Ape Yacht Club and Mutant Ape Yacht Club.

Blockchain journalist Colin Wu reported that, due to NFT popularity on the 9th of January, some users experienced lag and downtime on the OpenSea platform. One of the reasons for this was an NFT issued by a celebrated Chinese singer Jay Chou, which brought a flood of Asian users to the marketplace.

On the Flipside

  • OpenSea has faced some serious security issues.

We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
