The crypto markets has plunged by 14% over the past 24 hours, including the double whammy of Ethereum’s loss of 18% and Bitcon’s dip by 16% while NFT sales are also suffering from the crypto market crash but primarily because of ETH prices plummeting.
On a lighter note, NFT trading volume has incremented over the 24 hours by 54%, which is an excellent opportunity for collectors to hoard prized NFT collections.
The prices of high-end and popular nonfungible token collections like Bored Ape Yacht Club have also plunged; its lowest NFT floor price dropped by as much as 16%, or $107,000. The Bored Ape floor price plummeted by 11%, or roughly 74.5 ETH.
Nevertheless, the project has depreciated since May. On April 29, you can buy the cheapest Bored Ape NFT at 152 ETH or a whopping $429,000. You’ll see the enormous difference in the numbers.
