CryptoPunks saw a triple-digit increase in sales volume and had 863 sales over the seven-day period. The moves come on the heels of Visa Inc V buying a CryptoPunk and continued interest in the project as one of the first well-known launches.

Axie Infinity, which is a play-to-earn NFT game, was the only NFT of the top 10 in sales volume to see a week-over-week decline in volume. There were over 400,000 transactions for Axie Infinity in the last seven days and it remains one of the top NFTs of all time, ranking first on Cryptoslam with a lifetime volume of $1.66 billion.

0N1 Force was a new project launched Aug. 19. The NFT project ranked sixth and had a 24% increase, which shows the project is continuing to see support after the original minting.

Curio Cards was a surprise on the top 10 list with a 1,795% increase in sales volume. Curio Cards were released in 2017 and are older than CryptoPunks. The project is seeing interest from investors such as Gary Vee looking to get in on older lasting NFT projects.

Christie’s will auction a complete set of Curio Cards in October, which could continue to add interest in the project.
