  • BAYC saw its sales count jump in April, despite a decline in its floor price.
  • The quarter has been marked by a decline in MAYC’s sales volume and market capitalization. 

While blue-chip NFT sales declined by 12.2% in April, leading NFT project Bored Ape Yacht Club [BAYC] saw its sales count rally during that period, data from The Block Pro revealed. 

Per data from NFTgo, the Blue Chip NFT Index has dwindled since the year began. The Blue Chip Index is calculated by weighing the market capitalization of Blue Chip NFT collections to determine their performance. At 7,616 ETH at press time, it has fallen by 18% since 1 January.

Waning floor price, but spiking sales count

According to data from CryptoSlam, with 444 sales transactions completed in April, BAYC logged a sales volume of $43.83 million. This represented a 32% growth from the 336 transactions completed in March and a 16% rally from the $37.68 million registered in sales volume in March.

However, despite a jump in sales volume and sales count in April, BAYC’s floor price fell by 21% during the 30-day period, according to data from NFT Price Floor. At an average price of 46 ETH at press time, the collection’s price floor dwindled by 14% in the last month.
