According to the platform, the earnings do not include sponsorship revenue, engagement incentives, or grants as they generated only by creator fees from the resale of their work. OpenSea said:

"Even in a year characterized by tumultuous market conditions, this year’s data proves that creator fees are revolutionary – and that what we’re building more broadly in the NFT ecosystem is working."

OpenSea neither provided details on which NFT collections were the most successful in terms of creator fees nor when was the peak of sales.

Earlier in late October, analysts at Galaxy Digital found that creators of Ethereum-based NFTs made over $1.8 billion in royalties, with 428 collections accounting for 80% of the sales.
