2min Read

Base’s increasing number of transactions could be the comeback the NFT market needs. Alongside this, Yuga Labs’ NFTs witnessed a rise, while BAYC and MAYC showed promise as well.

Base is a silver lining in a struggling NFT market: Here's why

Share this article

  • The NFT market showed renewed activity after a period of decline.
  • Yuga Labs’ Blue-Chip NFTs stood out, while BAYC and MAYC’s collections also showed strong performances.

Over the past several months, the NFT market experienced a notable decline. However, a fresh surge of enthusiasm has emerged, largely driven by the Base protocol. This newfound interest is injecting vibrancy into the NFT market.

Realistic or not, here’s APE’s market cap in BTC’s terms

Base comes to the rescue

Data from Parsec Finance revealed a rising trend in Base NFT transactions, particularly notable in the Rainbow World collection, which defied broader NFT market trends. This rise in Base NFTs suggested a potential positive impact on the market.

Conversely, the outlook for PFP NFTs remained somber. PFP NFTs, or profile picture NFTs, witnessed a decline, with the USD market cap of top projects dropping from $5 billion to $2.2 billion, a 56% decrease from the peak in February.

A broader view of NFT activity across marketplaces also revealed a decrement. According to Dune Analytics, NFT trades and volumes fell across major NFT platforms.

This decrement in volume and trade may have broader implications for the NFT sector.

What’s cooking at Yuga Labs?

But regardless of the above trends, Blue-Chip NFT collections by Yuga Labs have maintained relatively stable performance. For instance, Bored Ape Yacht Club’s [BAYC] floor price rose by 8.48% last week while its volume increased by 49% in the last 24 hours, according to NFTGO’s data.

Similarly, Mutant Ape Yacht Club [MAYC] exhibited a 14.8% weekly increase in price and a 69% surge in sales over the past 24 hours.

The growing interest in Yuga Labs’ NFTs might also contribute to the growth of ApeCoin [APE], whose price surged to $1.473. However, Apecoin’s turning network growth indicated a falling interest in transferring APE.

Likewise, its velocity suggested a reduced frequency of APE trading.
