Solana NFTs revive, beat Polygon: What about Ethereum NFTs?

  • In the last 24 hours, SOL’s NFT sales exceeded $3 million 
  • Ethereum continued to dominate Solana and Polygon in the NFT ecosystem

Solana [SOL] witnessed some traction in its NFT ecosystem last week as a few popular collections migrated back to SOL.

Does this mean that Solana’s NFT ecosystem is poised to witness further growth in the coming weeks? 

Solana outperforms Polygon

The NFT ecosystem boomed last week as sales across multiple chains increased. AMBCrypto’s look at NonFungible’s data revealed that the total number of NFT sales last week increased.

The total number of unique sellers also went up during the same time.

While the market grew, Solana onboarded popular NFT collections like y00ts and DeGod, which had migrated to other chains earlier.

To be precise, y00ts returned from Polygon [MATIC], while DeDod left Ethereum [ETH]. The inclusion of such top collections helped SOL’s NFT space.

As per a tweet from SolanaFloor, SOL’s NFT sales reached $25 million in the last seven days. The number was commendable, as Polygon’s weekly NFT sales stood at a mere $8 million.

Nonetheless, Ethereum remained the top player, as its weekly sales volume was $48 million, as per Cryptoslam.

AMBCrypto’s look at DappRadar’s data revealed the top-performing collections on Solana. Both y00ts and DeGods made it to the top 5, along with Mad Lads, Frogana, and SMB Gen 2.

However, it was interesting to note that despite high sales volume, SOL’s total transactions dipped by more than 10% while Polygon increased by 17%.

Nonetheless, they were both still considerably behind Ethereum. The king of altcoins’ 24-hour sales volume exceeded $6 million, which was a 17% increase from the previous day.

Ethereum’s total number of buyers, sellers, and transactions all increased by 9.8%, 8.9%, and 12%, respectively, in the past 24 hours.
