A-Z of how the potential collapse of FTX has impacted the NFT ecosystem.

While the rest of the cryptocurrency market is reeling from the potential collapse of FTX, the NFTs ecosystem has not been forgotten.

Since the FTX debacle began on November 7, there has been a decrease in NFTs sales volume, market capitalisation, the daily count of NFTs traded, the number of traders in the market, and many other indicators.


An assessment of the performance of blue chip NFTs revealed a significant drop in Blue Chip Index in the last four days. According to NFTGo, Blue Chip Index is calculated by weighting the market cap (ETH/USD) of blue chip collections to reflect their performance.

The NFT collections that make up the Blue Chip NFTs category include but are not limited to Bored Ape Yacht Club, Cool Cats, CryptoPunks, Art Blocks, and CloneX.

Per data from NFTGo, measured in ETH, Blue Chip Index stood at 8,801, at the time of writing. However, since 7 November, this has dropped by 6%.
