What else does the report say? A total of about 42 000 NFT traders were recorded in September, with a peak of 66 000 in March. Bloomberg also noted that the ongoing crypto winter has caused the industry’s total capitalization to drop by about $2 trillion.

On September 12, the total number of NFTs issued on the Solana blockchain reached 312 000. On September 4, this figure was only 39 000. Also, this month, the marketplace posted its highest level of trading since May, at $11,5 million.

Apple also approved the possibility of selling non-fungible tokens in applications that are hosted on the AppStore. However, a 30% commission will be charged when selling NFTs through the apps.
