- Polygon NFTs gained significant traction in December 2023.
- NFT collections associated with a Stepn-linked game are driving increased volumes.
- Polygon still ranks behind Solana, Ethereum, and Bitcoin in volumes.
Following a largely lackluster performance for most of 2023, the Polygon PoS chain mustered significant momentum to show significant strength towards the end. Aside from the impressive price performance of MATIC, the native token of the Polygon network, data suggests that Polygon’s NFT ecosystem also witnessed significant buzz in December 2023.
Polygon NFT Sales Skyrocket
In a tweet on Sunday, December 31, Polygon-focused X account Today In Polygon highlighted that the monthly Polygon PoS NFT sales volume had reached its highest point since February 2023, with over $47 million in December 2023. The spike suggests that interest in Polygon NFTs is on the rise.
CryptoSlam data suggests that NFT collections related to Gas Hero, a Web3 massively multiplayer online game (MMO) from Find Satoshi Labs, the developers of Stepn, have contributed the most to Polygon NFT sales in the past 30 days. The GasHeroBadge collection led the pack, raking in $15.8 million within the period. GasHeroCoupon came a close second with $13.6 million.
The game has gained significant traction in recent weeks through multiple giveaway promotional campaigns, even though it has yet to launch.
On the Flipside
- Polygon remains far behind the competition in NFT sales volume despite its strong performance in December 2023.
