The DappRadar report also mentioned the tremendous rise in the popularity of generative art, which is art created at least in part by autonomous systems.

High gas fees on the Ethereum network saw several DeFi and NFT projects move off the platform in February, in favor of those with less costly transactions. Binance Chain recently surpassed Ethereum in terms of transaction volume and unique active wallet count and the report noted the rapid growth of several copycat NFT projects on Binance Chain, such as Binance Punks and Bashmarks.

NFTs garnered so much attention in the first six weeks of the year that CoinMarketCap added a dedicatedsectionfor the sect on Feb. 15.

A record price for a single NFT sale was set on Feb. 26 when aBeeple Crossroads NFT sold for $6.6 million, more than 100 times its original price.

On Mar. 2, a new NFT sales record was set when electronic music artist 3LAUsold$11.6 M worth of NFTs from his own website in a single evening. Only hours earlier, musician Grimescompleted $5.8 M in NFT salesin 20 minutes.

Not everyone is impressed by the rapid rise of NFTs. On Mar. 2, Litecoin creator Charlie Leecompared the surge in NFT popularity to the ICO crazethat occurred through much of 2017. He believes their relative simplicity and low barrier to entry will encourage widespread adoption of cryptocurrency, but that ultimately “few (NFTs) will hold and have value.”
