Here are stats from the report:

  • CryptoSlam’s ‘organic’ sales figures, which exclude suspicious trades marked as ‘wash trading,’ show that approximately $381 million worth of Ethereum sales were excluded, while only $10.1 million worth of Solana sales were removed from the data.
  • Solana’s total of $366.5 million in trades nearly reached the network’s all-time high, as reported by CryptoSlam. The previous peak was approximately $373.5 million worth in October 2021, a time when the cryptocurrency space was gaining significant momentum.
  • Solana witnessed approximately double the number of unique buyers and sellers compared to Ethereum during the same month. Additionally, the network recorded a significantly higher total number of NFT transactions during that period.
  • According to CryptoSlam, Solana had approximately 218,000 sellers and 279,000 buyers involved in nearly 6.6 million NFT transactions. In contrast, Ethereum had around 114,000 sellers and over 143,000 buyers participating in about 698,000 transactions during the same period.
  • Ethereum’s NFT sales volume in December 2023 remained relatively stable, hovering around the previous month’s total of nearly $350 million. In contrast, Solana experienced a substantial surge from approximately $83 million worth in November 2023.
  • The increase in users and transactions on Solana may be attributed to the broader momentum surrounding the platform and the excitement surrounding specific projects, which offer potential access to airdrops and other incentives. For instance, Tensorians, the NFT project associated with the prominent Solana marketplace, Tensor, recorded $28 million worth of trades in December 2023, while Mad Lads generated $24.5 million in trades.
  • The leading Ethereum NFT project in December 2023 was the Bored Ape Yacht Club, with NFT trades amounting to $19.5 million. Following closely, Pudgy Penguins secured the second spot with approximately $18.3 million worth of trades.

According to CryptoSlam’s data, Bitcoin Ordinals trades, the protocol facilitating NFT-like media on the Bitcoin blockchain, generated more trading volume than Ethereum and Solana combined in December 2023. The data indicates a total of $881.2 million worth of trades across over 493,000 transactions.
