Solana NFT Prices are Defying Crypto Winter. Here’s Why
According to DappRadar, y00ts and DeGods’ digital collectives top the NFT collection list on Solana. Notably, marketplaces like OpenSea and Magic Eden are leading the way on the network. The most popular collections in the past day were also the network’s LILY and y00ts collectibles.
Chris Burniske, the co-founder of crypto venture firm Placeholder, took to Twitter to point out the current uptrend in terms of sales.
New Launches Continue
Despite the market weakness, traditional marketplace Sotheby’s digital vertical has also launched the NFT sale of Pudgy Penguins. The platform recognizes the sales volume of the collection, stating that “Generating over $200M in trade volume, the brand IP of the Penguins has proven to catch the hearts of many with its positive ethos and cute appearance.”
The FTX Aftermath
Interestingly, in the aftermath of the FTX collapse, Solana seems to be fighting the slowdown. The Solana blue chip NFT floor price has continued to spike in the last 30 days. At the time of writing, SF NFT Index is up 5% in the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, as per on-chain analyst Decentrader, Pudgy Penguins is also pulling a decent performance in the green, beating the broader downturn.
