In a landmark achievement for the NFT market, Solana NFTs surpassed a major threshold, overtaking Ethereum in monthly sales volume for the first time ever.
As per CryptoSlam, Solana NFT sales skyrocketed to approximately $366.5 million, overtaking Ethereum’s $353.2 million in December 2023. Excluding suspicious activities such as “wash trading”, this data underscores Solana’s escalating influence in the NFT market.
A notable rise in user engagement on the platform is evident, marked by an increase in both sellers and buyers. Sales volume nearly hit a record-breaking level, closely matching its all-time high during the bull run in October 2021.
Comparative Dynamics and Emerging Trends
In December, Ethereum’s NFT sales remained stable, while Solana experienced a dramatic increase from its performance the previous month.
A surge in Solana’s price is credited to this upswing. As are the projects of Tensorians and Mad Lads. Meanwhile, Ethereum’s flagship NFT collections, such as Bored Apes and Pudgy Penguins, continue to bolster the blockchain’s sales statistics. And let’s not forget Bitcoin Ordinals’ rise, remarkably generating more trading volume than both Ethereum and Solana combined.
Still, Solana’s landmark achievement — surpassing Ethereum in NFT sales volume for the world’s first time — signifies a pivotal moment in the evolution of Solana NFTs.
