OpenSea, one of the largest NFT marketplaces, saw record-high Google search interest last week, according to data collected by The Block Research.
Search interest jumped from 73 in the first week of August to 100 — the maximum amount of interest possible — in the second week.
The Google search trend for OpenSea coincides with increased trade volume on the NFT platform. As The Block previously reported, OpenSea trades increased over 194% from July to August and already reached $830 million in volume for the month.
OpenSea is a New York-based startup founded in 2017, receiving venture funding from Andreessen Horowitz back in March. OpenSea is now worth over $1.5 billion, with the most recent venture funding of $100 million secured in July.
