Though we saw some decline in active users this week, the top 6 spots stayed exactly the same. Planet IX, a new staking style game, increased their share significantly, but are still just outside the top 5. Those top spots seem pretty solid. We’ll see if Planet IX can continue to grow enough and keep moving up.

The bottom 4 slots on the top 10 chart saw some shuffling this week, with Trickshot Blitz making their way back on to the charts.

Something is going on with the DappRadar chart we use to get these numbers, and for some reason, Bored Ape Yacht Club is not showing up in the 7 day chart. But, since the 1 day chart shows them at $1.72 million in trading volume, I think we can assume that they should still be in the top 10. But, we have to work with what we’re given, so this is the list according to DappRadar, though we’ll mark it with an asterisk.

However, even if with this issue, we see some surprising movement in NFT project sales this week. Azuki vaults back into the top 10, easily claiming the top spot with nearly $8 million in volume over this past week! And Undead Blocks, fresh off their loot box release in conjunction with Gamestop surges into the charts with over $2.4 million in sales in their first week! If anyone doubted that there was a market for NFT skins, this should put those doubts to rest!
