Despite a fall in monthly sales volume, Axie Infinity continues to hit new milestones in the non-fungible token (NFT) space.

Axie Infinity is one of the most popular names when it comes to play-to-earn games and digital collectibles. 

According to Be[In]Crypto Research, Axie Infinity had a total sales volume of approximately $4.07 billion as of April 30, 2022. 

This comes as a huge boost to the project after it lost $600 million through the Ronin bridge hack in April.  

This places Axie Infinity ahead of Yuga Labs’ Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC), and the recently acquired digital collectible, CryptoPunks. 

Other projects in the running for the most sales volume include Flow’s NBA Top Shot, Art Blocks, VeeFriends, Moonbirds, Azuki, World of Women, Bored Ape Kennel Club, and CloneX.
