Data Shows Sellers Dominating And Causing An Imbalance in NFT Market

    Throughout April, there hasn't been a day where the number of sellers on the market hasn't surpassed the number of buyers.

    In April, the nonfungible token market has consistently seen more sellers than buyers, without a single exception. Recent data from the analytics platform NFTGo has revealed that there hasn’t been a day in April when the number of buyers outnumbered the number of sellers.

    Based on the data, this could indicate a potential lack of demand in the NFT market that could be concerning for those planning to sell their NFT soon. The last recorded day buyers exceeded sellers was on March 11, when there were 9,756 buyers and 9,754 sellers.

    The turbulent market conditions have been met with various community reactions on Twitter. Ovie Faruq, the co-founder of Canary Labs, stated in a tweet on April 26 that the NFT market is “not functioning” at the moment.

    Cointelegraph previously reported that the NFT market experienced a decline on March 12, after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank caused fear in traders. Before the bank’s collapse, NFT trading volumes were hovering between $68 million to $74 million on March 10; however, on March 12, they fell to $36 million. The dip was also accompanied by a 27.9% drop in daily NFT sales count between March 9 and March 11.

    According to a March 20 CoinGecko report, the top six NFT marketplaces saw a rise in wash trading in February for the fourth month straight, with a total volume of $580 million. The report revealed that the market witnessed a 126% increase from the previous month’s volume of $250 million — with the report attributing the overall recovery of the NFT marketplace as the reason for the increase.

    On April 5, while there were more buyers on the market — 18,495 — there were also 36,423 sellers. Days before, on April 19, the NFT market hit its second lowest point in the past twelve months, with only 5,893 buyers — a slight increase from the lowest recorded date in the past twelve months, which was on June 18, 2022, with 5,343 buyers.
