Coupled with this, Algorand’s weighted sentiment grew tremendously over the past few days, as can be seen from the image below. This indicated that the crypto community had a positive and optimistic approach towards the platform.
The spike in weighted sentiment could also have impacted the growth in Algorand’s NFT volume.
