More good news for Solana NFTs

The Solana Foundation launched its first NFT pitch contest, aimed at encouraging budding creators to build new NFT brands that have real world impact. Dubbed as ‘NFT Showdown’, the goal of the competition is to improve the quality of NFT projects in the Solana ecosystem.

The competition will provide a platform for creators to come up with business pitches that will explore the verticals of fashion, entertainment, or gaming, thereby driving the growth of utility NFTs.

Solana added that the winners of the contest will get mentorship from industry experts.

Solana’s new initiative attempts to address a sticky issue in the NFT landscape. Over the last few years, hundreds of NFT collections with soaring valuations have flooded the market. But rather than utility, it was the reputation which was primarily driving the value.

Of late, Mad Lads, a collection of 10,000 unique profile picture (PFP) NFTs, has played a major role in reviving the network’s NFT landscape.

Network activity jumps

Solana network started to assert its dominance in network activity when compared to other blockchain networks. At over 571k daily active addresses, Solana established a big lead over Polygon [MATIC] and Ethereum [ETH] in the last 24 hours.

In terms of trading activity, Solana again outpaced other networks by logging 25.5 million transactions over the last 24 hours, significantly higher than the second-best Polygon network which recorded a little more than 2 million transactions.
