Solana secondary NFT sales reach half a billion dollars in three months


03 Nov 2021

#Solana

CryptoSlam ranks Solana as the fourth-best NFT blockchain behind Ethereum, Ronin and Wax in terms of 24-hour sales volume. Secondary sales volume for Solana-based nonfungible tokens (NFT) has reached almost $500 million since the start of August. According to data from CryptoSlam, secondary sales of Solana NFTs have generated a total of roughly $497.7 million from around 348,000 transactions as of Tuesday, with the average sale per NFT tallying in at $1,500. The data shows that Solana saw a record month for secondary NFT sales volume during September with a total of $189.4 million. While Solana is seen by some as an “Ethereum killer,” the Ethereum blockchain remains the most popular, with NFT aficionados and secondary sales on Ethereum topping $2.2 billion that same month.

Messari research analyst Mason Nystrom highlighted the data via Twitter on Wednesday and noted that while Ethereum still “dwarfs Solana in total NFT secondary sales,” the upstart network has quickly established itself as one of the top NFT blockchains in the space of a few months.

CryptoSlam’s rankings list of the top NFT blockchains sees Solana currently sitting at fourth in terms of 24-hour secondary volume with $1.9 million. Leading the pack are Ethereum ($37.7 million), Ronin ($23.5 million) and Wax ($4.5 million). Solana’s top NFT project is the Degenerate Ape Academy, which has generated $105.9 million worth of secondary sales since its launch in mid-August. The Degenerate Ape NFTs depict animated gorilla avatars with unique traits, and the project has seen $454,000 worth of secondary sales over the past 24 hours.

According to data from CoinGecko, the price of Solana’s SOL token has gained 30.3% over the past 30 days to sit at around $225 at the time of writing. This recent pump has seen SOL tag a new all-time high of $229.76 earlier on Wednesday. The market capitalization of SOL is now around $68.1 billion, making it the fifth-ranked digital asset in terms of total capitalization, sitting slightly ahead of fellow “Ethereum killer” Cardano (ADA), which has a market cap of $63.1 billion.

Cointelegraph Markets Pro has a price target of $250 per SOL by year-end, citing on-chain data from the decentralized finance sector and the derivatives market as key indicators for the prediction.
