Sorry; No NFT market crash so far!
Within a few short weeks we have witnessed sales records that have increasingly beaten the next, mainstream media who have discovered a passion for NFTs, Elon Musk writing a song about vanity and then selling it as an…NFT
Do you think that’s a lot all at once? Well, Tacos Bell and Pizza Hut are also in the game now! But our goal here is not to make an exhaustive list of all the international brands who are discovering the marketing power of NFTs but rather to ask a question that everyone who has been here since 2017 has asked: Are these the signals of a top and might it be time to sell before it all collapses?
This is a question that some media have recently wanted to answer prematurely! It almost seems that some have been eagerly awaiting a Market Correction, to finally prove that NFTs have just been in a bubble.
We’re really sorry to disappoint but we’ve looked at our data from all angles and there’s no NFT Market Crash to report yet!
What about NFT average price?
The average price of NFTs spiked quite astoundingly in February, peaking at around $4,000 in mid-February. Since then, record sales continue to follow, averaging almost $1,500.
Of course, this shift in the curve was predictable, and is even reassuring as to any potential “Market Correction” that may arise.
This current average price represents an increase of around 10 times the average price of an NFT 6 months ago ($142 at the start of October 2020).
Can this be considered a price crash and the start of the market correction? Not exactly, the trend seems more to show a stabilization on a high plateau following a speculative peak.
The volume of assets traded has experienced an interesting lag, which can be explained by the growing interest of new buyers following record sales.
The volume of NFT trades per week more than doubled compared to the previous Quarter from ~ 20,000 trades per week to more than 40,000 weekly trades. Likewise, there is a high plateau phenomenon around 40,000 weekly trades, following the peak in mid-March at almost 80,000 weekly trades.
What happened at the NFT projects level?
The average price of a CryptoPunks increased from $ 2,500 to $ 95,900 in the space of a few months, dropping back down to around $ 45,000 by the end of March.
