The trading volume of NFTs has markedly decreased since the previous bull market, with a recent figure of merely $37 million per week, a sum that constitutes less than 1% of Bitcoin's daily trading volume. This downturn begs the question: are NFTs facing extinction, or is there potential for resurgence?

  • Why NFTs are not dead

  • How Blur successfully dethroned OpenSea

  • Outlook for the NFT market and Blur
