By December 30, 2022NFTs

Most Popular NFTs 2022 - AIO BotWe’re wrapping up the year by listing the top 3 most popular NFTs of 2022. To say that this was a hectic year would definitely be the understatement of the century. And, although the NFT scene did calm down after the market crash; things are still FIRE!

Thankfully, we don’t have as many weird NFT collection drops. But, that’s because the industry has become a lot more refined. Only people who know what they’re doing will make it through. And those are the people who will be making the most money with NFTs! If you want to be a part of those people, we got the thing! Join our FREE hub for NFTs and become a master too.

MOST POPULAR NFTs OF 2022

#1 BORED APE YACHT CLUB

⏩ SALES VALUE: $1.59 BILLION

First, of all the most popular NFTs in 2022 (and all time), is a no-brainer. We kickstart this list with none other than the Bored Ape Yacht by Yuga Labs. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that this is on top of the list whether they’re in the NFT industry or not. These apes have taken the world by storm! Everyone who is anyone has an ape NFT PFP. And, some of our favorite celebrities have been endorsed in the collection including Eminem and Snoop Dogg!
Despite everything that happened in the industry, even the market crash, these apes are still highly coveted!

⏩ SALES VALUE: $1.16 BILLION

Next, another one of the most popular NFTs in 2022 is another counterpart for the Bored Apes. The Mutant Ape Yacht Club collection ranks second among the top collections of the year. This collection is the cheaper and weirder part for the NFT apes. There are almost as twice as many Mutants as there are Bored Apes so they have higher trade frequencies. 

Owners of the Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFT got a cut of the ApeCoin dropback in March 2022. This allowed them to claim free Otherdeed NFT in April! So, the collection had a lot of NFT utilities to give it a bigger appeal!

Top NFT Sale: Mutant Ape Yacht Club #4849 for 350 ETH

#3 OTHERDEED FOR OTHERSIDE

⏩ SALES VALUE: $1.12 BILLION

Finally, the third of the most popular NFTs in 2022 is Otherdeed for Otherside – one of the largest new launches. Now this collection was groundbreaking, and in less than a year hit the charts! The initial mint and secondary sales generated almost $561 million within 24 hours! The concept of buying a plot of NFT land in the metaverse game world was just next level! So, it is without a doubt one of the most coveted non-fungible tokens of the season!

Of course, the entire year of the most popular NFTs can not be summed up in only 3 collections. However, these are the collections that had us in a chokehold! But, naturally, we have much more that we’re obsessed with and expect to see more of in 2023! So, check out our list of honorable mention NFTs below!
