The NFT marketplace has shown signs of revival with an 18.30% increase in sales, reaching $106.32 million in the first week of November 2023. This surge in activity is a welcome change from the previous month’s sluggish performance, with both buyers and sellers becoming more active in the market.
Ethereum Leads the Way
Ethereum continues to dominate the NFT space, with sales totaling $60.91 million, an 8.55% increase from the previous week. This enduring preference for Ethereum-based NFTs underscores the blockchain’s strong position in the market.
Bitcoin NFTs Make a Remarkable Leap
Bitcoin-based NFTs have made a significant mark, with sales soaring by 154.75% to $13.17 million. This impressive performance indicates a growing interest in Bitcoin’s potential within the NFT sector.
Diverse Blockchains Showcasing Strength
Other blockchains like Solana and Mythos have also made their presence felt. Solana’s NFT transactions amounted to $8.53 million, while Mythos followed closely with $7.46 million in sales. Immutable X rounded off the top five, with $5.69 million in sales, showcasing the diversity and resilience of the NFT market across various platforms.
Top-Selling NFT Collections
The Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) led the week’s top-selling NFT collections with sales of $10.79 million. The Captainz and Dmarket followed, with significant sales of their own. Notably, Bitcoin’s BRC20 NFTs also made a substantial impact, with sales hitting $7.3 million.
The most expensive NFT sale of the week was BAYC #6022, which fetched $303K. This sale, along with other high-value transactions, highlights the continued enthusiasm for premium NFTs among collectors and investors.
Sustaining the Momentum
While the 18% increase in sales is a positive indicator, the NFT market must maintain this momentum to fully recover from the recent downturn. The coming weeks will be crucial in determining whether this resurgence is a temporary spike or the beginning of a sustained upward trend.
