The non-fungible token market crunch continued in the third quarter as sales sharply plummeted in the earlier quarter. NFT trading volume dropped 55.6%, with dwindling interest across chains. In this article, we shall discuss the state and performance of the NFT market in the past three months.
NFT Sales Fell 55.6% In 2023 Q3
Data compiled by CoinGecko.com, an on-chain data aggregator, reveals that the non-fungible token market has dropped in sales volume as investors kept clear of risk assets amid a challenging macroeconomic environment. NFT trading volumes declined from $3.67 billion in the second quarter of 2023 to $1.63 billion in the third quarter of 2023.
The NFT market began plummeting sometime in June, leaving the majority of NFTs shielding more than 70% of their floor price value. The nearly 70% drop comes as investors continued avoiding risk assets, which have been battered in recent months.
Despite NFT trading volume dwindling, the Ethereum network maintained its dominance of 83.2% of the NFT market in Q3. Although Ethereum led in Q3, it has since declined from its peak in May and only slightly rebounded in September this year.
On the other hand, non-fungible tokens hosted by Immutable X chain NFTs have had a strong Q3, with monthly trading sales volume averaging above $20 million. Its NFT market share increased from 2.1% in Q2 to 3.9% in Q3. The remarkable surge was attributed to traction in the trading card game Gods Unchained, which launched on the Epic Games Store in August.
