What Are The Top 5 NFT Statistics, Facts & Trends?

Now that we’ve gone through what non-fungible tokens are and some of the history behind them, we can dive into some statistics about NFTs.

1. How Many Buyers Are There?

According to nonfungible.com — a site that tracks NFT transactions on popular marketplaces — most days in April and May of 2021 had between 1,000 and 3,000 unique wallets buying NFTs.

This was a total of almost 30,000 unique buyers in April and almost 25,000 in May. This is down slightly from the 39,000 unique buyers throughout March, but this is a significant increase in buyers compared to 2020, when most months saw fewer than 10,000 unique buyers.

2. What’s the Most Expensive NFT Video Ever Sold?

Not only does he have the most expensive NFT of all time, but in February 2021, Beeple’s “Crossroad” sold for $6.6 million, making it the most expensive video art sold as an NFT. This short, 10-second animation depicts a giant Donald Trump — lying on the ground and covered in logos and slogans — with people walking past.10

3. What’s the Most Expensive NFT Song Ever Sold?

Back in March 2021, SlimeSunday and 3LAU put a song up for auction on Nifty Gateway. The auction winner — who paid $1.33 million to name and own this NFT — would later name this song “Gunky’s Uprising.”

4. When Was the First NFT Minted?

Although there is some dispute over what can be considered the first NFT, Kevin McCoy’s “quantum” — minted on May 3, 2014 — was revolutionary for its time and a major factor in the development of modern NFTs.

Alongside Anil Dash using the namecoin blockchain, McCoy used “quantum” as a demonstration for how people could sell digital artwork online. Its importance in NFT history was cemented even further on June 10, 2021, when the piece was sold again for $1.47 million.15

5. What Was the First NFT Worth a Million Dollars?

Back before NFTs had their recent surge in popularity, a piece of art called the “Forever Rose” went for exactly $1 million. This sale, which was finalized on February 14, 2018, was split among 10 buyers who each paid $100,000 for one-tenth of the NFT.16
