This past month, the Renga NFT collection has been making a buzz in the NFT collection, often taking the top spot in OpenSea as the most traded NFT for the week and rising by quite a bit in trading volume as well as floor price.
Now, it’s made even bigger news as the collection has officially overtaken Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), arguably one of the biggest NFT collections in the world, to take the spot of the most traded NFT collection on OpenSea throughout the month of September.
What Is Renga NFT?
The RENGA collection is an NFT project made by popular illustrator and comic artist Dirty Robot which started minting and sold out immediately back in late August.
The collection itself consists of 10,000 PFP NFTs with varying traits. It’s been incredibly hyped up and complimented by members of the community for its art style, how well-drawn the it is, as well as how distinct and different each traits are, making most of the NFTs seem unique.
The collection was even complimented by Bored Ape Yacht Club co-founder, Gordon Goner not long ago, who praised RENGA’s art.

The collection has been garnering so much attention in fact, that the collection has soared by almost 200% in trading volume within just these past 7 days.
