Despite these factors, the activity on the Solana network stayed high. According to data from 28 April, Solana managed to keep up with Polygon, the Ethereum mainnet, and Arbitrum in terms of daily activity.
The spike in activity could be attributed to the interest in the platform’s NFTs. Blue chip collections on the network, such as y00ts, DeGods, and Solana Monkey Business, contributed greatly to the NFT success.
According to solana floor’s data, the overall volume of the blue-chip index on the Solana protocol increased materially over the last month.
Solana’s dApps contributed to the growth of the protocol as well. According to Dapp Radar, popular dApps such as Rarible, MeanFi and Saber observed a spike in terms of unique active wallets on the protocol.
Saber, a marketplace on the network, also witnessed a surge of 3.33% in terms of volume. Subsequently, the number of transactions on the network also grew.
