NFT Sales Dip — Bitcoin Dominance and Solana's Rise Challenge Ethereum’s NFT Authority 

In the last week, sales of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have fallen by 12.26%, totaling $463.87 million, marking a decrease from the previous week. NFTs centered around Bitcoin topped the chart, amassing $265.61 million in sales, despite a 13.71% decline from the preceding week. Meanwhile, Solana NFTs climbed to the second rank, relegating Ethereum to third place in this week’s sales.

NFT Market Update: Digital Collectible Sales Slide 12.26% Lower Than Last Week

As NFT sales began climbing once more with Bitcoin surging to the forefront since early November, this week witnessed a 12.26% dip in sales, according to figures from cryptoslam.io. Conversely, the count of NFT buyers surged by 72.05%, and sellers increased by 56.61%.

This week’s priciest NFT, “Deep Vision #05128” on Cardano, fetched $551,750. Ethereum’s “Frxethredemption T” followed with a $369,208 sale price, and BNB’s “Lockdealnft #91” closed at $329,824.

Bitcoin’s “Bitcoin Frog #8518” garnered $137,957, while Avalanche’s “Nodeldnft #126” and Solana’s “#3524” realized $51,312 and $39,492 respectively, rounding off the top six most expensive NFT sales by blockchain.

Among the ten leading NFT collections over the past week, nine hailed from the Bitcoin blockchain, with only Solana’s “Open Solmap” compilation breaking in as the fifth highest, amassing $10.24 million in sales.

Previously, Ethereum-based ‘blue chip’ NFT collections like Cryptopunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) dominated sales charts. Yet this week, BAYC dropped to 27th, and Cryptopunks to 45th, as Bitcoin led the pack again with $265.61 million in sales, representing 57.25% of all NFT transactions this week.

Solana recorded $88.42 million in sales, while Ethereum pulled in $75.91 million. A while back, Ethereum previously enjoyed the majority of NFT sales, but this week saw Solana’s share at 19.06% and Ethereum’s at 16.36%.

Additionally, NFT transactions on the BNB chain surged by 118.84%, with Arbitrum seeing a 39.48% spike and Avalanche enjoying a 28.74% increase compared to last week. Despite the modest dip in NFT sales this week, the rise of Bitcoin-centric NFTs, highlights the dynamic and ever-changing nature of the digital collectibles space.

Solana’s ascent to the second spot further underscores the changing landscape, as Ethereum takes a step back in the rankings. The recent drop in rankings for BAYC and Cryptopunks certainly raises an intriguing question: Are these once-dominant ‘blue chip’ NFT collections facing a significant shift in the NFT landscape, or is this just a temporary setback?
