The Art Blocks Friendship Bracelet NFT Collection has recently taken the top spot on the OpenSea marketplace. The collection was available to existing holders of Art Blocks NFTs until Tuesday of this week, after which the collection quickly rocketed to the top of the leaderboard.
The 38,413-piece collection was conceptualized by Art Blocks founder Erick Calderon (Snowfro), and designed by artist and Japanese Generative Art Foundation Director Alexis André. The animated artwork was inspired by the novelty bracelets shared between kids and was available to any existing holder of an Art Blocks NFT. The token holders were able to claim up to two tokens for free since its release in late October up until the claim window period closed on Tuesday.
The collection has been hugely successful, with 24-hour trading volume on OpenSea at 996 ETH (over $1.3 million) and a total trading volume of 7,437 ETH (about $9.9 million).
The success of the Friendship Bracelet collection is no surprise given the past performance of Art Blocks NFTs. Generative art NFTs minted on Art Blocks have consistently ranked highly across marketplaces, and the Friendship Bracelet collection is no exception.
It is clear that the Friendship Bracelet collection has been a hit with token holders, and the success of the collection is a testament to the power of the Art Blocks platform. With the claim period now closed, the collection looks set to remain at the top of the leaderboard on OpenSea for the foreseeable future.
