According to data released this week, the total value of non-fungible token (NFT) sales across more than a dozen distinct blockchains has topped $36 billion. While there are 18 competing blockchains that offer NFTs, Ethereum-based NFT sales account for more than 75% of all sales. While Ronin has the second-highest number of NFT sales, NFTs from the game Axie Infinity have long been the best-selling collection, with more than $4 billion in global sales to date.

As the NFT ecosystem has grown into a multibillion-dollar business, the world of blockchain-based digital collectibles has become a force to be reckoned with. According to this week’s data, total NFT sales have reached $36 billion to date.
The $36 billion in sales listed on cryptoslam.io’s NFT dashboard come from 18 distinct blockchains, including Ethereum, Ronin, Solana, Avalanche, Wax, Polygon, and Flow. However, Ethereum’s $27 billion in NFT sales is 75.02 percent of total sales across all chains.
Aside from Ethereum, the top blockchains in terms of all-time NFT sales are Ronin ($4 billion), Solana ($2.2 billion), Flow ($1 billion), Polygon ($591 million), Wax ($430 million), Avalanche ($277 million), Immutablex ($98.7 million), Palm ($50.5 million), and Tezos ($40.4 million). The top nine blockchains’ total NFT sales account for approximately 24.61 percent of all non-Ethereum-based NFT sales.
The next nine blockchains below Tezo’s position account for only 0.37 percent of the total $36 billion in NFT sales volume. The only two chains having more than a million unique NFT purchasers are Ethereum (1,300,118) and Ronin (1,742,207).
