NFT Trading Volume Rises in a Backdrop of Market Slump

January 6, 2023


As 2023 begins, NFT trading volumes seem to be on the rise despite the continued market downturn. According to data from NFTGO, January 5 saw a record-breaking 32,000 ETH traded in a single day on the NFT market. This marks the first time in three months that this has occurred. Similarly, OpenSea’s ETH trade volume reached a two-month high on the same day.

Data from DappRadar shows that 2022 saw an increase in total NFT sales volume nearly on par with 2021’s high. In 2022, the NFT market organic trade volume across blockchain platforms and marketplaces was around $24.7 billion. That is slightly lower than the $25.1 billion recorded in 2021.
