  • Solana recorded a spike in NFT sales volume in the past 24 hours.
  • The general NFT market has witnessed a decline in sales activity in the last month.

The sales volume of Solana [SOL]-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has climbed by over 30% in the past 24 hours, CryptoSlam’s data has shown.

According to the on-chain data provider, the value of all Solana-minted NFTs sold during that period totaled $3.17 million.

During the period under review, 78,165 NFT sales transactions were completed on the Solana network. 

On a month-to-date basis, NFT sales volume on Solana has totaled $65.11 million, marking a 57% drop from the $152 million recorded in April. 

CryptoSlam’s data showed that monthly NFT sales volume on the network had decreased after peaking at a year-to-date high of $250 million in March.

In comparison, the past 24 hours have been marked by a decline in NFT sales volume on the Ethereum [ETH] network. With $7 million recorded in sales during that period, the chain has logged a 20% fall.

The Bitcoin [BTC] network has fared considerably better, with a 10% surge in NFT sales volume during the same period. 

The NFT market in the last month

The NFT market has witnessed a steady decline in trading activity in the last month.

According to NFTGo’s data, in the past 30 days, the total volume of NFT sales across all collections was $448 million, recording a 15% fall. 

However, due to the recent surge in the values of several cryptocurrency assets, NFT market capitalization has registered a minor rally. At $8 billion as of this writing, this has risen by 1% in the last month.
