  • Solana’s NFT sales volume surged by more than 200% last month.
  • SOL also ranked first on the list of cryptos in terms of monthly transactions.

Solana [SOL] has remained a major player in the NFT ecosystem for quite some time, with several top collections onboard. However, its recent effort, Solana Saga, took a blow because of lower sales.

While that happened, the blockchain’s network usage surged over the last month.

A look at Solana’s NFT space

Solana’s co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko recently made a statement regarding a product of the company. He told Unchained that the Solana Saga phone has sold only 2,200 units and will need higher sales, such as 25,000 to 50,000 units, to build a core user base.

He also mentioned that discussions are ongoing within the company and may launch new models, enhanced applications, store discounts, and many more.

Not only does Solana Saga boost the company’s portfolio, it also plays a part in the blockchain’s NFT space. Therefore, AMBCrypto had a look at how the blockchain has been performing in the NFT niche.

CRYPTOSLAM’s data revealed that SOL’s NFT sales volume surged by more than 274% in the last seven days. Its total NFT transactions also gained upward momentum last month.

However, it was surprising to see a noticeable drop in SOL’s number of NFT sellers and buyers.


After quite a few cold weeks, the blockchain’s NFT space did gain traction, which was evident from Santiment’s data.

SOL’s NFT trade count in USD spiked sharply on the 6th of December. Nonetheless, its NFT trade counts remained stable throughout the last month.

Solana’s network activity is also rising

Apart from the NFT space, the blockchain also gained traction in terms of network activity.

As per a recent tweet from CryptoRank, Solana had the highest number of transactions in November, as the number hit the 622 million mark. Polygon [MATIC], Tron [TRX], BNB Chain [BNB], and Sui [SUI] also made it to the top five on the same list.

AMBCrypto’s look at Artemis’ data further pointed out that the blockchain’s captured value also somewhat increased last month. This was evident from the fact that SOL’s fees and revenue moved northward in the recent past.
