The Ethereum Name Service (ENS) was included in the list of the top 5 collections based on number of sales. After selling $5.3 million of NFTs, ENS took third place. Merely 295 people supplied the funds, signifying a remarkable 1022 percent rise.

From around 190,000 purchases, the DMarket collection on Mythos generated $4.6 million in revenue. With sales of roughly $2.7 million, Bitcoin Puppets on the Bitcoin network took fifth place. The wide range of successful collections demonstrates the varied investment styles and levels of interest present in the NFT market.

The overall drop in NFT sales suggests a cooling period for the market. However, the increased activity in certain networks like Ethereum and Immutable X shows there are still areas of growth. The significant rise in active buyers on the Ethereum network indicates a sustained interest in NFTs despite the overall sales decline.

Final Thoughts

This week’s NFT market performance shows a mix of ups and downs. While Ethereum and some networks saw positive growth, the overall market faced a decline. High-value sales and new entrants in the top collections indicate that interest in NFTs remains strong, even as market dynamics fluctuate.
