The crypto market is down today with a 14% drop in overall value in the past day and 16% loss for BTC as well as an 18% loss for ETH. NFT floor prices drop as collections are feeling the hurt of the crypto marekt in part to the falling ETH price but the FNT trading volume increased sharply in the past day to 54% suggesting that collectors are taking advantage of the lower prices. The popular BAYC NFT saw its floor price listed on the secondary marketplace drop to $107,000 and representing a 16% drop in the last day when measured in US dollars.

Some collectors could be taking advantage of the cheap ETH and dropping valuations to gather some expensive NFTs at a lower price. Overall, the crypto analytics sites show that there was a 54% increase in trading volume in the past day, compared to the previous 24-hour window.

The bored ape yacht club leads the list for the trading volume in the past day with $5.8 million worth of NFT sales. An NFT serves as a deed of ownership to an idem and they are often used for digital goods like artwork, profile pictures, and sports.

The NFT trading volume dropped last month when the prices started suffering and the market continued struggling ever since.
