What is the current state of the NFT market?

Crypto l NFTs | OpenSea | Volume


The following article deals with the question of how the overall NFT market is currently performing. Let's therefore take a look at the data with a focus on volumes, transactions, prices and public interest.


Volume and transactions

Since the beginning of the year, monthly volumes have declined significantly. In particular, the Opensea marketplace has seen a sharp drop in monthly volume.

A further breakdown by category or chain shows a similar picture. Declining volume in both categories Gaming and Art NFTs.

The breakdown by chain reveals the dominance of Ethereum, but at the same time also its sharp decline in volume.

A decline in the number of monthly transactions is also evident although it is not as drastic as in volume.

Prices

In order to be able to make a statement on how the overall market for NFTs has developed (in terms of prices), NFT benchmark indices provide some useful information.


Nansen NFT-500: The benchmark index consists of 500 NFT collections and represents an average of 85.4% of the daily market volume since 1 January 2022. This index aims to track the activity and movement of the NFT market.

Nansen Blue Chip-10: The Blue Chip NFTs index is a collection of notable and classic NFTs. It is also the first index constructed by Nansen. While the old index consisted of 20 constituents, the revised Blue Chip-10 index consists of ten well-established NFT collections weighted by market capitalization.

Again, a clear downward trend can be observed. But what about the the public interest?


Public Interest

The google search trends are used as a measure of public interest.

The current data show a clear trend for the overall NFT market: sharply declining volume, fewer transactions, falling prices and less interest as measured by google search trends.
