NFT Market Booms Investigating the Purchases of Major Investors and Influencers

In the past week, the Bitcoin ecosystem and related markets have been continuously hot. But perhaps some people haven’t noticed that the NFT market is also gradually moving out of its rising trend. According to BlockBeats’ observation, since November, whales have been buying Weirdo Ghost Gang, Yuga Labs’ Gordon Goner, Squiggle series, World of Women, doodles, and other NFT products. All signs indicate that the NFT market is gradually warming up.

NFT market trading volume has steadily increased in the past two weeks, with the floor price of multiple projects skyrocketing

According to NFTGO data, Ethereum NFT trading volume has increased by 79.46% in the past month, reaching 208,880 ETH. NFTs traded in USD have also shown substantial growth, with a trading volume increase of 102.83% in the past month, reaching a volume of 380 million USD. Looking at the data from the past week, the activity in the NFT market has been continuously refreshing. On November 7th, according to Dune’s data, Ethereum NFT trading volume exceeded 10,000 ETH, reaching 10,351 ETH, a three-month high.

In addition, on November 8th, according to Dune’s data, the trading volume of Bitcoin NFTs approached 16 million USD, reaching the second-highest historical point. This has also fueled the recent rise in the NFT market.

The NFT trading volume has been steadily increasing over the past 5 weeks, with the lowest point being 29,704 ETH, equivalent to approximately 56 million USD in the week ending October 9th.
