Ethereum saw a steep decline in sales volume due to a lack of investor appetite for digital collectibles throughout July. 

Ethereum struggled in July but remained the biggest selling blockchain by NFT sales volume by around $535.7 million, according to Be[In]Crypto Research based on data from CryptoSlam. 

Despite grossing more than half a billion dollars, sales were down by 25% from June. In June, digital collectibles sales on Ethereum were approximately $722.4 million.

Why the drop in sales?
