Sky Mavis’ Axie Infinity has been revealed as the most Googled non-fungible token (NFT) collection in the world according to the data gathered by creative resource Design Bundles.

With 3.86 million monthly global searches, Axie Infinity came out on top. The SandBox, a virtual world on metaverse, was second with 553,000 searches followed by NBA Top Shot, an NFT collection of NBA video highlights, with 477,000 searches.
Sorare, a blockchain game with a virtual football team with digital player cards, is in fourth place, receiving 417,000 global searches. Decentraland ranks as the fifth most googled NFT collection, with 201,000 global searches. Decentraland operates similarly to The Sandbox where users buy virtual plots of land through cryptocurrency.
