The astronomical figure follows a surge in activity in the space that saw sales peak at $176 million per day earlier this year. World-renowned auction houses, Sotheby’s and Christie’s got in on the action, with the latter hosting the now-infamous Beeple Collection sale, raising a record $69 million.
Several of the largest players in the NFT space, including Cryptopunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club, continue to see spectacular sales, with Cryptopunks alone selling just under $15 million worth of NFTs on average over the past 7 days. Despite the market saturation, a new kid on the NFT block, Wicked Craniums is storming into the market, curating a dedicated fanbase. But what are Wicked Craniums and why are they so popular?
Wicked Craniums: The New Kid on the Block
Wicked Craniums are an NFT art collection hosted on OpenSea. Each piece is a skeleton-themed caricature that represents one of 10,762 “Craniums” belonging to a fictional island called Osseous. There are over 180 differentiable features that make each Cranium unique and highly collectible.

Priced at 0.06 ETH (~$113.70 at current market rates), each Cranium affords its owners several features, including access to a members-only social platform called The Cradle, in which Craniums can share introductions, social media handles, and images. There are also a number of members-only projects that kick off as more Craniums are sold and each owner also has full commercial and use rights for each Cranium.
