However, NFT volume was not driven by major corporate groups on the Solana network.

Popular projects like Mad Lads, Solana Monkey Business and Clayosaurrz have seen their floor price drop over the past week.

This suggests that the NFT volume was driven by new NFTs created on the Solana network that did not gain much popularity.

The interest and less popular NFTs indicate a healthy and thriving ecosystem.

However, Solana’s performance in other areas, such as the DeFi sector, is also important in determining how the protocol and its ecosystem will perform in the long term.

In terms of DEX (decentralized exchange) volumes, the protocol saw a massive decline in activity, going from $4 billion in volume to $1 billion.

Although DEX volumes have decreased, TVL (total value locked) on the Solana network has remained largely the same.
