Despite myriad challenges facing the general crypto market, the non-fungible token market has remained strong. The crypto market is down as most investors fear a regulatory crackdown on the sector, uncertainty due to rising interest rates in the United States and the United Kingdom, and the alarming rise in the debt ceiling.

NFT Sales Drop 10% In The Past 7 Days

According to CryptoSlam, an on-chain market data aggregator, the non-fungible token market has showcased strong resilience amid the recent crypto market turbulence, flipping just 10% from last week. In the past seven days, the NFT market has recorded a trading sales volume of $153 million.

During this period, the non-fungible token market has seen a sharp increase in the number of traders transacting in the ecosystem. The number of NFT buyers has surged by 45% to 522,464, pushing the number of total transactions in the global NFT market to surpass 2 million. In the past seven days, NFT transactions have surged by 7%.

Bitcoin and Ethereum Rival For NFT Market Dominance

Binance vs Ethereum NFTs

In the past seven days, the non-fungible token market has experienced stiff competition between Ethereum and the flagship crypto, Bitcoin, over the NFT market dominance. Recently, Bitcoin ordinals have gained traction, dethroning Solana NFTs and becoming the second most traded NFTs.

Bitcoin Ordinal found its way to the NFT market earlier this year after Bitcoin developer Casey Rodarmor inscribed the non-fungible tokens using Satoshi Ordinal theory. Since then, Bitcoin has gained massive adoption, with more than 9 million Ordinals inscribed.

Bitcoin NFTs now aim to outperform the dominant Ethereum NFTs after successfully ganging down Solana NFTs. In the past seven days, Bitcoin NFTs have recorded a trading sales volume of $22 million, rallying below Ethereum, which has attracted $88 million. Bitcoin NFTs have seen a sharp drop of 47% this week.

Solana NFTs appear to be crawling back after suffering a big blow the past week. In the past seven days, Solana has pumped 47% on its trading sales volume to $12 million, aiming to reclaim its market dominance. The new Mythos Chain takes fourth place this week after amassing a trading volume of $7 million.

Ethereum Accounts For $117M In NFT Wash Trades

Ethereum has continued to suffer a bad reputation this week due to its rapid rise in NFT wash trades. NFT wash trading happens when buyers and sellers in an NFT transaction are the same person. The shadowy practice is prohibited in most conventional financial markets because it’s often used to manipulate markets and create a false sense of high demand.

In most cases, some traders may try to manipulate the prices of certain NFTs to make them appear more valuable. Ethereum has accounted for more than $117 million of wash trading in the past seven days, representing 57% of its total sales volume. Bitcoin has also accounted for $2 million of the NFT wash trading. Bitcoin NFT wash trading has pumped 24,576% during this period.

LookRare, a digital market platform for Ethereum non-fungible tokens, has dominated the highest number of NFT wash trading this week. The NFT marketplace has accounted for 96% of the NFT wash trading. X2Y2 NFT market platform has also recorded notable NFT wash trading.
