After a slight decline, the non-fungible token market is up 34%. Let’s talk about new trend collections, the most successful blockchains and expensive purchases.
The week that ended on April 5 was a good one for the NFT market. Token sales increased by 34% from $579 million to $779 million. An excellent result, especially considering that the previous 7-day ended with a loss of 2%.
The weekly sales leader was not Cryptopunks or even BAYC, but the Azuki collection. Her weekly sales nearly doubled to $95 million.

The most expensive purchase of the week was Cryptopunk 8865 – 450 ETH, or almost $1.6 million, was paid for it.
