Art Blocks remains one of the most successful NFT platforms in the industry. First of its kind, Art Blocks is an Ethereum-based NFT platform that allows artists to create original NFT artworks based on alphanumeric figures generated by the Ethereum blockchain.

Users can mint their own unique NFT art just by picking a preferred style on the platform, paying for it and in turn, the NFT content is randomly generated via an algorithm on the Ethereum blockchain.

According to Cryptoslam, Art Blocks has recorded over US$1 trillion in sales volume since late 2020 when it started.This certainly makes the platform one of the most successful in the industry. Owing largely to its uniqueness and myriads of opportunities it provides to users.
