Will Avalanche’s NFTs help AVAX go up? Refer to these metrics for an answer
The number of NFT trades on the Avalanche network surged and the interest in dApps increased.
On the other hand, daily activity on the network declined.
The NFT market has primarily been dominated by Solana, Polygon, and Ethereum, attracting considerable user attention. Nevertheless, according to current data, Avalanche may be poised to close the gap and compete with these protocols soon.
According to recent data, it was observed that Avalanche NFT transfers surged. During April, the Avalanche network experienced over 2 million NFT transfers, a figure that was five times greater than the previous month of March.

The increased interest in Avalanche NFTs could be attributed to Blue chip AVAX NFT collections. Over the past few months, popular NFT collections like Chikn and Doggerinos have witnessed a significant surge in volume, as per the data from AVAX NFT STATS.
The dApps operating on the Avalanche network experienced a similar level of interest. Trader Joe, one of the leading DEXs on the Avalanche network, witnessed a surge of 183.8% in the count of unique active wallets on its network in the past month.
As a result, the volume and quantity of transactions on the network also increased during this period.
