The upward trend in terms of volume is prevailing throughout the NFT market and a number of other projects are also looking great. While Bored Apes experienced a 300 ETH sale, CryptoPunks had an 87.9 ETH sale during the past 2 hours in the open market.
DeFi projects such as Bend DAO that are based on NFTs issued 300 new loans against the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Furthermore, NFT-inspired AMMs (automated market makers) such as SudoSwap have seen a spike in volume, as the 7-day volume has exceeded 200,000 on the protocol.
It’s not only the Ethereum Chain where the demand for NFT collection can be seen, as Solana has also shown possibilities of a spike in volume. Y00ts and DeGods cover over 50% of the volume on the Solana NFT ecosystem.

Though crypto markets have hinted at signs of strength in 2023, the uptrend in NFT markets’ volume should not be considered to be a change in market conditions. Therefore, NFT collectors need to be very careful while making decisions regarding purchases.
