Bitcoin NFTs hit $4B in all-time sales volume

While the overall nonfungible token (NFT) space saw a 54% drop in sales in May, digital collectibles on Bitcoin reached a new milestone. 

On June 4, NFT data tracker CryptoSlam showed that NFTs on the Bitcoin blockchain reached a total all-time sales volume of over $4 billion. The data combined the NFT sales, which were $3.97 billion, and the wash sales, which were $82 million.

In the last 30 days, Bitcoin-based NFTs recorded a sales volume of $171 million, taking the top spot in terms of sales volume by blockchain. The network was followed by Ethereum, which had $159 million and Solana, which recorded $90 million in the past month.

Even though Bitcoin-based NFTs are leading the charts in 30-day volumes, the network is only the fourth-largest blockchain in sales. It follows the Ronin blockchain, which holds the top three spot with $4.2 billion in all-time sales.

The decline in sales volume also affected Bitcoin-based collectibles. The data showed that NFTs based on Bitcoin experienced a 68% decline in sales in May.
