Fast facts

  • NFT sales on Ethereum increased by 36.06% in the last 24 hours, more than any other blockchain with at least US$100,000 in sales over the period. 
  • According to JP Morgan, Ethereum is losing out to rivals like Solana in NFT sales due to exorbitant fees. 
  • Ethereum’s average transaction fee is down to US$11, a near 80% discount from early January, but still expensive compared to Solana’s US$0.00025 average fees. 
  • August’s London hard fork was expected to lower transaction fees as the blockchain moved from an auction-based gas mechanism to a base fee system.
