Why the waning sales?
The fall in average sale value was the reason for the sinking NFT sales. Despite reaching an all-time high in monthly sales volume during April, the average sale value in June was much lower.
In June, the average sale value of an NFT was $58.50, and this was a 79% decrease from April’s $387.43.
Volume for April was approximately $311.55 million.
