NFT Market Prediction Post Bitcoin Halving

As the highly-anticipated Bitcoin halving event draws near, industry experts in the non-fungible token industry anticipate that the crypto milestone will not only impact the crypto market but also have a positive effect on the NFT ecosystem. While expressing his insight in a past interview, Oscar Franklin Tan, CFO of Atlas Development and a top contributor to the NFT platform Enjin, remarked:

“As Bitcoin’s price rises, we expect to see a rise in interest and demand for NFTs, particularly those integrated within altcoin ecosystems. These NFTs, unlike profile picture (PFP) projects, often receive token airdrops or serve as digital collectibles within the token-gated network.”

Statista, an on-chain analytic firm, projects the NFT market revenue to reach $2.3 billion in 2024. The firm also expects the NFT market to show an annual growth rate of 9.10% and reach $3.3 billion by 2028. The average revenue per user in the NFT market is projected to reach $162.1 in 2024.
