Executive Summary


Our estimate of the NFT market capitalization of PFP and generative art is 8.07M ETH ($13.53B). This is down from an ETH-based peak of 9.84M ETH ($28.11B) on May 2, 2022 and down from an USD-based peak of 8.11M ETH ($28.54B) on April 4, 2022.

PFP Collections account for 81.1% of the total market cap [6.54M ETH ($10.97B)], Generative Art for 17.23% [1.39M ETH ($2.33B)], and certain other collections for 1.67% [134.82K ETH ($226.04M)]. We intend to add other categories such as 1 of 1 art in the final report for a complete view of the space.

The Top 3 collections by market cap are all Yuga-affiliated collections: CryptoPunks at 1.28M ETH ($2.14B), BAYC at 1.26M ETH ($2.1B), and Otherdeed at 806.43K ETH ($1.35B).

Fidenza (ranked #6 overall) has the highest market cap of a generative art collection with a market cap of 300.2K ETH ($503.33M)

The highest one day sale volume in NFTs happened on May 2, 2022 hitting 140.22K ETH ($390.41M) total volume. The second highest volume was on August 29, 2021 with 89.4K ETH ($290M) traded.

The historical market caps over the last year show strong correlation with ETH, something we hope to explore more in the comprehensive report.

Currently we support 406 collections with valuations supported by more than 700 models and more than 4 million valuations per day.
