Dominance in Monthly Sales Volume

In the last 30 days, Bitcoin-based NFTs have led the market in terms of sales volume, recording $171 million. This places Bitcoin at the top of the sales volume leaderboard by blockchain, outpacing Ethereum, which recorded $159 million, and Solana, which saw $90 million in sales during the same period. Despite this recent dominance, Bitcoin is currently the fourth-largest blockchain in terms of all-time sales volume. The Ronin blockchain holds the third spot with $4.2 billion in sales. Solana-based NFTs rank second with $5.5 billion in all-time sales, while Ethereum maintains its lead with an impressive $43.8 billion in recorded sales.

Impact of Market Downturn and Transaction Value Surge

The broader NFT market experienced a substantial downturn in May. On May 31, CryptoSlam reported a 54% decrease in monthly NFT sales volume compared to April. In April, the NFT market saw over $1 billion in sales, while May’s sales volume dropped to $624 million. This decline in sales volume also impacted Bitcoin-based NFTs, which experienced a 68% reduction in sales during May.

Despite the overall decline, Bitcoin NFTs achieved a significant milestone in transaction value. On May 28, Bitcoin transactions reached an estimated value of over $25 billion, marking the highest transaction value in the past year. Data from Bitcoin explorer Blockchain.com revealed that Bitcoin holders moved approximately 367,000 BTC on the blockchain on May 28. At that time, Bitcoin’s price was around $69,000, making these transactions worth $25.5 billion.
