Data shows the total volume of the Cardano-based NFTs has reached a new all-time high after surging up more than 300% in the last ten days.
Cardano Daily NFT Volume Sets New ATH At 4 Million ADA
Ater having remained low for the last few months, the 24 hour volumes on the ADA non-fungible token marketplaces have observed a significant uplift during the past month.
The “trading volume” is a metric that measures the total amount of NFTs being traded in marketplaces on any given day.
Here is a chart from the non-fungible token marketplace tracker OpenCNFT that shows the trend in the volume for the Cardano-based NFTs during the last year:

With the current month arriving, however, the indicator’s value has enjoyed some sharp uptrend as activity in ADA non-fungible token marketplaces has shot up.
The last ten days or so especially have registered some huge growth in the volumes. On 14 October, the metric’s value was around 943 million ADA, while by today this has increased to a whopping 4 million ADA.
This is a rise of more than 320% in a relatively short period. Also, the latest 4 million ADA volumes have been the highest these marketplaces have ever observed.
While the Cardano NFT environment has been thriving recently, the same can’t be said about the overall market. The below chart shows the trend in the total non-fungible token volume.

From the graph, it’s apparent that the trading volumes in the general NFT market have been very poor for months now, with seemingly no respite in sight.
At the time of writing, Cardano’s price floats around $0.3489, down 5% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 23% in value.
Below is a chart that shows the trend in the price of the coin over the last five days.
