Dune Analytics has released a new report that studies the activities of NFTs across the blockchains they are being hosted. The report claims that the platform looked into several aspects of activities across these blockchains. These activities include transaction volume, dominance, number of users, and growth, amongst other factors. In terms of where it gathered its information, the analysis platform used OpenSea, Coinbase NFT, and Rarible, among other marketplaces. However, this analysis will compare these activities across just Ethereum and Solana.

  • Daily transaction volume

The report looked at the transaction volumes of NFTs on both blockchains over 24 hours. While the Solana blockchain accounted for over $3 million, Ethereum had more than $19 million in its volume in the same period. A look at the average trade size in 24 hours showed that Solana registered about $57, while Ethereum had just $216.
