Nike has enjoyed a prosperous position among other brands. Various luxury brands have been in competition with it, but few have come on par with it. The reason is the continuous innovation, quality, and high-end services. What has recently brought it to the news isn’t the increased sales in the traditional market. Rather, it has topped the list of leading revenue makers in the NFTs amongst the top brands.
Other athletics and fashion brands are on the list, showing significant gains. Though the recent few months have brought bearishness to the market, these brands have continued to thrive. An amazing fact about the list is the presence of athletics and fashion brands more than any other category.
Here is a brief overview of how Nike has topped the list of the leading names in NFT sales.
NFT sales and luxury brands
Luxury brands have attracted considerable traffic despite the market changes. They have a specific customer base that continues purchases regardless of regular sales fluctuations. As the NFT market thrived, fashion and athletics brands understood its importance. They made their due share in revenue by creating their NFTs and selling them. A recent report shows that Nike has been the most successful of them, attracting the highest amount of revenue.
Nike has given a tough time to other companies as it retained its customers. The revenue that it made from the sale of NFTs is multifold compared to other brands. The other names in the list include Dolce and Gabbana, Tiffany, Gucci, Adidas, Lacoste, etc. The list shows the interest of customers in fashion and sports brands.
The transactions and the amount other brands earned are lower than Nike. The mentioned data is for one of the most depressive years for the market. According to available data, the market saw a slight spike in sales in May 2022, while the rest of the months have shown a decline in sales. A year back, these sales were setting new records as their value grew tremendously.
