Web3 gaming received a bit of a boost recently from notable web2 companies such as Nike and Ubisoft, while Azuki dominates the NFT charts with their new Elemental collection release. Let’s take a look at who’s on top of the charts this week!
Who says NFTs are dead?! Despite some technical difficulties and very short minting windows for their NFT holders, the new Azuki Elementals collection sold out during pre-sale, raking in over $38 million dollars!
Web3 gaming remains hot as well, with new playtests from Heroes of Mavia, Sparkball, Rogue Nation, My Pet Hooligan, and more! And for those like games AND NFTs, the mint for Parallel Avatars opens this month, and Boss Fighters opened up pre-registration for their upcoming Alpha Pass sale!

Move over BAYC, Azuki is on top of the charts this week! With their recent release of the Elementals collection, Azuki really shook up the rankings this week. And though the average price for an original Azuki NFT has fallen by over a third, the trading volume for this NFT collection has been insane with over $66 million in trading volume this past week!
But it wasn’t all quiet for the Bored Ape Yacht Club. On back of the release of their HV-MTL Forge game, the HV-MTL NFT collection saw a surge in interest. It will be interesting to see if the Otherside pops onto these charts when we get closer to the release of their Legends of the Mara game.
With all of the hype around these PFP projects, Gods Unchained is nearly pushed out of the top 10. But they manage to hold on with a solid $4.15 million in trades!
