The NFT market has been on a rollercoaster ride this quarter. On the one hand, heavy pressure from macroeconomic trends and the fallout from the Terra debacle have hindered NFTs’ performance. However, NFTs are weathering the storm quite well. Moreover, Looking at a broader timescale, the yearly performance is staggering. Overall trading volume and sales count are up by 533% and 59%, respectively, from Q2 of 2021.
Although OpenSea is the premier NFT trading platform, its share has declined with the emergence of marketplaces like LooksRare, x2y2, and Solana’s Magic Eden. The decline in trading can be attributed to the drop in the market value of cryptocurrencies and rising competition in the NFT trading landscape. However, while the marketplace’s volume measured in US dollars fell around 70% since May 2022, volume in ETH is down by 55% in the same timespan.
In industry moves, Ethereum’s leading decentralized exchange (DEX) Uniswap has acquired the NFT aggregator platform Genie. Aggregator platforms accumulate NFT offers from various trading marketplaces across all chains to give a holistic view of the NFT market and meet traders’ needs in one place with decreased gas fees.
