OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace, has broken its own record in Ethereum trading volume for the month of January. NFT trading on the Ethereum blockchain surpassed the $3.5 billion mark only about halfway through the month, according to data from Dune Analytics.

Over the course of January, OpenSea has exceeded $169 million in sales each day. The most successful day in sales on the marketplace was January 9, with $261 million in trading volume recorded.

The jump in January broke OpenSea’s previous all-time high of $3.42 billion, which occurred in August last year. It also had another major month of sales in December, with $3.24 billion reported.

With almost two more weeks in the month, there’s still time for OpenSea to notch an even higher sales record.
