Sweeping The Floor

Definition of sweeping the floor

To sweep the floor is to purchase (all) NFTs from a set at the floor price. This is often done by investors who believe in a project and wish to purchase additional NFTs from a set while also helping to raise the floor price (because, if they and others buy up the lowest-price NFTs the floor price naturally rises, which can positively impact the perception of value the set has).
