Creative Resource Design Bundles looked at what the most in-demand NFTs are and how many times they’re searched on Google each month. According to a press release, Axie Infinity tops the list with 3.86 million monthly searches.
In recent months, NFTs have exploded in popularity. The global number of searches for NFTs averaged 5.1 million hits per month, a five-fold increase compared to the end of 2021. This is mainly due to the fact that celebrities and the media refer to NFTs as “new cryptos”.
In terms of searches, Axie Infinity is number 1. The collection consists of Axies, characters within an online game very similar to Pokemon. Each character is digitized as an NFT and stored on the Ethereum blockchain. The collection can be considered the most popular NFT available, with an all-time value of $4.14 billion and 1.9 million traders and worldwide searches averaging 3.86 million per month.
