Solana NFTs are on the rise
Solana Daily, a popular Twitter account that posts updates related to the Solana ecosystem, pointed out an interesting update. As per the tweet, MagicEden was the project with the highest number of active users in the last seven days.
A look at the blockchain’s metrics also told a similar story of growth. According to Dune’s data, Solana NFTs registered a gain in the total number of transaction counts over the last few weeks. A similar trend of increment was also seen in terms of transaction volume.
SOL’s NFT sales volume increased by more than 26% in the last seven days. The number of NFT buyers and sellers also went up by more than 30% over the past week. Dappradar’s data revealed that GGSG, Ec.io, and SolPunks were the top 3 collections during the time period.
Solana’s price turns bullish
Amidst all this, investors were having a good time as SOL price increased recently. According to CoinMarketCap, SOL’s price surged by nearly 2% in the last 24 hours. At press time, it was trading at $16.27 with a market capitalization of over $6.5 billion.
However, the surge might not last long as the price uptick was accompanied by a decline in trading volume, which is a typical bearish signal.
Solana’s one-week price volatility suggested that the price uptick might end as the graph registered a decline. However, as per Coinglass, SOL’s open interest increased. An uptick in the metric generally means that the on-going price trend continues longer.
Additionally, SOL’s Binance funding rate was also high, reflecting its demand in the derivatives market.
