Among the most popular collections of blue chips, Azuki NFT suffered the most. Sales of the collection fell by about 77% over the past week, while the number of new buyers decreased by 74%.
The drop came after the collection sparked increased interest and an abnormal increase in sales following a blog post by the founder of the project under a pseudonym, which at the time reduced the collection’s starting price by about 45%.
Although the decline in NFT sales is due to a combination of factors, a more important reason may be the recent collapse of the algorithmic stablecoin. Terra UST, which caused a ripple effect throughout the crypto market.
Meanwhile, a major U.S. investment bank Morgan Stanley recently issued a warning about the NFT, saying they could be next to Terra.
