Notable NFT projects on Solana

NFT is a one-of-a-kind digital asset that cannot be replaced by another token, which means it is completely unique. There are many different uses for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), such as demonstrating ownership or tokenizing works of art by artists and game developers, and so on, due to their characteristics.

Leading the list of notable NFT projects on Solana last week was Stepn, a Move To Earn project with $167 million in transactions. Following Stepn was Degods with $162 million in transactions, which was considered the project with the largest community on Solana.

Shadowy Coder was ranked third. Each Shadowy Coder NFT, which was minted for 2.5 SOL in November 2021, is now trading at a floor price of 160 SOL. The remaining NFT initiatives were primarily in the fields of metaverse, web3… and are highly usable.

Avalanche Ecosystem

Avalanche is a revolutionary blockchain that is created to build and scale decentralized applications (dApps). The project seeks to unseat Ethereum as the most widely utilized smart contract in blockchain ecosystems, with features that include easier access for all users of any level of experience.

The Avalanche ecosystem was in a booming period with 478 projects and partners developed in just 20 months. Recently, Avalanche also teamed up with Coinbase to integrate Coinbase Wallet into Avalanche's dApp. This would enable Coinbase Wallet users (mostly in the United States) to gain easier access to Avalanche.

Some outstanding numbers in the Avalanche ecosystem could be mentioned: Avalanche's total value locked (TVL) reached 4.22 billion USD, the transaction level on the DFK Chain subnet exceeded 10 million, and the Unique Contracts Deployed index reached 166,000. These are all remarkable numbers, indicating that users and developers on Avalanche are quite active.
