The total volumes done by the collection in the first 7 hours exceeded those done by next 7 most popular collection in the last 7 days combined.
One of the NFTs in the collection, “Moonbirds” #7963, also became one of the most expensive NFTs of all time, fetching 135 ETH ($420,000). That puts it as number 9 most expensive NFT sales of the week.
