Bitcoin NFTs reach record sales volume with 4 billion USD

According to NFT data tracker CryptoSlam, on June 4th it was revealed that NFTs on the BTC blockchain have reached an all-time high total sales volume, surpassing 4 billion USD. This data includes NFT sales, which totaled 3.97 billion USD, and wash trading, which contributed 82 million USD.

In the last 30 days, NFTs using the BTC blockchain led the sales volume among blockchains, recording 171 million USD. This amount put the BTC network ahead of Ethereum and Solana, which recorded, respectively, 59 million and 90 million USD in sales last month.

Bitcoin NFTs lead in volume, but rank fourth in total sales

Although Bitcoin-based NFTs are leading the rankings in terms of volume over the last 30 days, they only rank fourth in total sales among blockchains. The Ronin blockchain is ahead, occupying the top three spots with a cumulative sales volume of 4.2 billion USD.

NFTs based on the Solana blockchain are in second place, reaching a record 5.5 billion USD in total sales. In turn, the Ethereum network maintains leadership in NFT sales, with an impressive volume of 43.8 billion USD in sales recorded to date.

The NFT market as a whole experienced a drop in sales volumes in May. According to CryptoSlam, there was a 54% reduction in the monthly sales volume of NFTs compared to April. While in April sales exceeded 1 billion USD, in May the volume was just 624 million USD.

This decline also directly impacted BTC-based NFTs, which suffered a 68% drop in sales during the month of May.
