According to data collected by The Block Research, OpenSea, one of the largest NFT marketplaces, saw record-high Google search interest last week.
Search interest increased from 73 in the first week of August to 100 in the second week — the maximum amount of interest possible.
The rise in Google searches for OpenSea corresponds to an increase in trade volume on the NFT platform. As previously reported by The Block, OpenSea trades increased by more than 194 percent from July to August, reaching $830 million in volume for the month.
OpenSea is a New York-based startup that received venture funding from Andreessen Horowitz in March. OpenSea is now worth more than $1.5 billion, with the most recent $100 million in venture funding secured in July.
