Galaxy Digital’s Report Says NFT Developers Have Secured $1.8B in Royalties Up Till Now
This is noteworthy, keeping in view that the position of OpenSea is that of the biggest marketplace of NFTs in terms of its trading volume, as per DappRadar.

The venue has witnessed more than $147M in payouts up till now. As per the data provided by Dune analytics and referred to in the respective report, an amount of nearly $91.6 was made by Nike – the platform which obtained RTFKT (a startup of digital collectibles) – in consolidated non-fungible token royalties.
Apart from that, the rest of the real-world companies such as McLaren Nickelodeon, Adidas, Gucci, and others have also earned from NFT royalties although the amount collected by them is much lower than the prominent Web3-based entities including World of Women, Doodles, The Sandbox, Art Blocks, and so on.
In August 2022, X2Y2 (a marketplace for non-fungible tokens) incorporated an optional structure of royalty payments for purchasers.
In the same vein, in the previous week, Magic Eden (the NFT platform based on Solana) decided to leave the responsibility of the royalty payments’ number on the collectors. NFT royalty counts as a comparatively unique phenomenon while looking at the whole history of the NFT world, per the report.
