How Much the Most Popular NFTs Cost Right Now

In this article, we will review the most popular digital assets on the market and find out how much they cost right now.

In recent years, NFTs have turned into a multi-billion-dollar asset class that’s attracted investment from many prominent figures. As the sector grows, more and more projects are released. NFTs represent abstract digital art to music, sports memorabilia, film snippets and even real estate.

NFT sales have catapulted over the years. 2021 saw a huge upswing in the interest in digital assets and the sale of NFT projects. The year saw some jaw-dropping sales of NFTs. While 2021 was a year of remarkable growth and gains for NFTs the entire cryptocurrency market has experienced a bad run this year in what has been called the “crypto winter.”

Despite this, many NFTs have shown their resilience as a growing technology and offer users some sort of utility making headway in these stormy clouds. A report published by Verified Market Research has projected that NFTs will increase in value to USD 231 billion by 2030. Let’s take a look at the prices of the most popular NFTs right now!

1. Bored Ape Yacht Club

Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) was created by Yuga Labs LLC. This collection includes 10,000 art pieces of cartoon apes. Bored Apes NFTs became a forerunner in the industry as its launch coincided with the time when NFTs were at their hottest. These art pieces were created from 170 unique traits.

Each Bored Ape Yacht Club receives access to members-only benefits such as merchandise, real-life meetups, and various rewards. Bored Ape at one point had become so popular that a number of celebrities including Timbaland, Eminem, Neymar Jr. and Jimmy Fallon changed their Twitter profile pictures to Bored Ape artworks.

In April, the entry for Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs were at USD 400,000 but have fallen since the crypto crash to around USD 150,000. The floor value for Bored Apes is currently at 58.50 ETH which equals to USD 73,039 in terms of current ethereum exchange rates.

2. CryptoPunks

Launched in June of 2017 by product studio Larva Labs, and acquired by Yuga Labs in 2022, CryptoPunks is one of the first NFT collections on the Ethereum blockchain. It contains 10,000 unique 24×24 pixel art images that usually depict punk-style human characters (male and female). But there are rarer CryptoPunk art pieces which are considered more valuable because of their rarity. These include zombies (88), apes (24), and aliens (9). Each CryptoPunk can also exhibit a combination of 87 unique attributes. These are known as “traits” and include things like hats, pipes, necklaces, earrings, eyepatches, and more.

CryptoPunk NFTs have been sold in the past for millions of dollars with CryptoPunk #5822 being sold for close to USD 23.7 million on Ethereum. Earlier, CryptoPunks had the highest floor price in the marketplace until Bored Apes crossed it in December 2021. However, numbers from the last ten days showed that the floor value of CryptoPunks stood above the 60 ether zone while the floor value for BAYC dropped below the 60 ether limit.

3. Azuki

Azuki was created by Chiru Labs, a group of Los Angeles-based artists and developers with backgrounds in crypto, technology, and gaming. At its core, Azuki is a collection of 10,000 generative avatar NFTs launched on January 12, 2022. It received attention initially because of a popular marketing campaign on Twitter. Each token within the Azuki collection is the result of a randomized selection of traits. The collection features anime-style profile pictures and had an initial mint price of USD 3,400 for 8,700 art pieces, which sold out in the first four minutes. Those who own Azuki NFTs can access their metaverse called ‘The Garden’.

Azuki has continued to stay high in the OpenSea rankings for sales and floor price five months after its launch. The collection has made USD 300 million in trading volume after 30 days. Azuki’s floor price is currently hovering around USD 11,005.18 with a 24-hour sales volume of 47.52 ETH. Until now, a total of 10,000 Azuki NFTs have been minted with a market cap of USD 110,051,760.

The collection’s artwork contains 2D imagery of birds each of which has several unique features, including beak size, hair, eye color, and accessories such as eye patches, headbands, and monocles.

5. VeeFriends

In less than a year, VeeFriends has become one of the most influential and unique NFT collections on the market.

Vaynerchuk got involved with crypto in 2017 and with NFTs much later in 2020. He has built a personal NFT collection that consists of 10, 225 NFT art pieces with artwork done by Vaynerchuk himself.


VeeFriends’ current price floor is USD 6,886 with a 24-hour sales volume of 17.36 ETH.
