Navigating NFT Market Trends: Recent Decline in Sales Sparks Shift Among Top Blockchains

Between January 20 and January 27, 2024, there was a noticeable decrease in the sales volume of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), plummeting by 21.25% compared to the previous week. The prominent blockchains, Ethereum and Bitcoin, both experienced substantial declines, ranging from 28.78% to 12.62%, respectively.

The NFT market faced a sharp decline at the beginning of 2024, with sales dipping by 1.31% below the figures of the last week in 2023. Although there was a slight uptick in NFT sales the following week (approximately 0.05%), the most recent week saw a notable 5.05% decrease in digital collectible sales.

This week marked the steepest decline in 2024, with a sales plunge of over 21% compared to the preceding seven days, totaling $228,327,660 according to metrics from

This downturn contrasts with the surge in NFT sales at the end of 2023, primarily driven by Bitcoin blockchain-based transactions. However, recent weeks have witnessed a shift, with Ethereum regaining its position as the leader in NFT sales volume. Ethereum’s NFT sales over the past seven days amounted to $74.97 million, reflecting a 28.78% decrease from the previous week.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin experienced a 12.62% week-over-week drop, achieving $55.92 million in sales over the same period. Solana secured the third position with $53.69 million in sales, representing a decrease of 11.85%.

Polygon’s NFT sales claimed the fourth spot at $15.66 million, but experienced a significant 36.40% drop. In the fifth position, Avalanche garnered $7.98 million in sales, with a noteworthy 41.25% decline in its NFT market.

All five leading blockchains in weekly sales experienced double-digit losses. Among the top ten, Ronin, particularly supporting Axie Infinity, witnessed a significant 209.09% surge, achieving $1.76 million in NFT sales.

High-Ranking NFT Collections and Top Sales

In the realm of unique digital collectible collections, the Cryptopunks series secured the highest position in sales this week, amassing $13.67 million, marking a 32.23% increase from the previous week.

Bitcoin’s Uncategorized Ordinals experienced $9 million in sales, witnessing a 3.75% decline from the week prior. Solana’s Froganas reported $7.04 million in sales, a substantial increase of 420.77% compared to last week.

In the fourth position, Solana’s Cryptoundeads achieved $6.75 million in sales, facing a 58.82% decrease. In the fifth position, Avalanche’s Dokyo NFT collection registered $5.85 million in sales, experiencing a 33.70% drop in sales volume from the previous week.

The highest-priced digital collectible of the past week was Cryptopunk #6,940, fetching $507,618 seven days ago. BNB’s Lockdealnft #18,858 realized a sale of $147,157 four days ago, while an Axie Infinity NFT commanded a price of $143,559 this week.

An Uncategorized Ordinal was acquired for $88,386, and a Cardano’s Meld Diamond Hand #2,813 went for $56,186. The sales of Cryptopunk #6,940 and the Axie Infinity NFT contributed significantly to the sales boost on their respective chains.

Sales of blockchain-based digital collectibles faced a challenging period throughout 2022, and most of 2023 also witnessed a downturn in NFT sales until the year’s end. Bitcoin’s entry into the NFT sales arena initially boosted overall sales, but BTC-focused NFT sales not only decreased this week but also experienced a 28.15% drop the week before.

NFTs based on Solana and Polygon showed an increase in the latter part of 2023, yet they have recently encountered modest falls in their overall digital collectible sales volume. Whether this downward trend in NFT sales continues or a resurgence occurs remains to be seen.
