Solana’s NFT ecosystem has concerns to address
CryptoSlam’s data revealed that Solana’s NFT sales volume plummeted by more than 56% last month. To add to the misery, its number of sellers dropped by a whopping 4131%.
In fact, the blockchain has also witnessed a few popular NFT collections, such as y00ts, migrate to Polygon [MATIC] in the past. Interestingly, y00ts has made a strategic decision to ignore the possibility of a move back to Solana and announced its migration to the Ethereum [ETH] blockchain.
As evident from Santiment’s chart, the blockchain’s total NFT trade counts and trade volume in USD skyrocketed during May and the following week. However, the good days came to an end as both metrics plummeted over the coming months.
But the latest announcement made by Solana Mobile regarding Saga could help turn the situation around in the blockchain’s favor. Notably, Solana Mobile revealed that it has cut down the device’s price to $599.
The motive behind the price reduction was to increase the adoption of mobile Web3 and continue to enhance the experience for the community.
