Solana NFTs did not do as well in the four months before November 2023. Since July 2023, the monthly sales volume for NFTs based on Solana struggled to record a volume above $40 million. However, things started to change after October 2023.

The sales volume for Solana-based NFTs started showing signs of life when it hit about $82 million in monthly sales in November 2023 — a 192% jump from the previous month when it only had about $28 million in monthly sales.

Furthermore, Solana NFTs continued their momentum in the following months. In December 2023, NFTs on Solana recorded around $365 million in monthly sales. The record was its second-highest monthly sales volume, following its $373 million record in October 2021.

While the sales volume slowed down a little in January, NFTs on Solana still recorded over $239 million in sales during the month. At the time of writing, February’s monthly sales volume stands at $161 million. Solana NFT’s sales performance has risen in recent months, with over $1 billion in sales volume in the last nine months.

The uptick in Solana NFT sales in December 2023 coincided with Solana’s (SOL $103) token’s bullish price action. On Dec. 26, 2023, SOL hit a high of $121.45, with a trading volume of $5.7 billion, according to the coin data tracker CoinGecko.
