NFTs feed Solana!
Solana’s NFT landscape faced a major challenge after hitting a three-month low in the last week of February. This was after Solana’s major network outage that caused significant FUD among the community.
Since then, NFT activity has recovered impressively. Data from Crypto Slam showed that the weekly sales volume was worth more than $17.5 million, a jump of about 32%.
The total number of NFT transactions also grew more than 9% from the previous week.
The expansion of Solana’s NFT ecosystem is significant, as the chain was hit by high-profile desertions not too long ago. DeGods, one of the most valuable NFT collections on Solana, announced last December that it would be migrating to Ethereum [ETH] while another collection of y00ts shifted to Polygon [MATIC].
At the time of writing, Solana was the second largest destination for NFTs behind market leader Ethereum, according to data from CryptoSlam.
Investors go long on SOL
SOL’s on-chain data raised concerns. From a monthly high of 1.79 billion on Feb. 20, trading volume went downhill, dropping 84% as of this writing, according to Santiment.
On the other hand, funding rates on Binance and dYdX increased, implying there was a demand for SOL in the derivatives market. This is generally seen as a bullish signal.

The bullish sentiment was reflected in the increasing Longs/Shorts Ratio, according to data from Coinglass. The number of long positions taken has increased sharply in recent days.
However, according to CoinMarketCap, the SOL was down 2.48% in the 24-hour period at the time of writing.
