Bitcoin price fell to as low as US$65,000 after trading around its all-time high throughout the week but sales volume of the network’s non-fungible tokens (NFT) stole the spotlight on Friday.

Bitcoin emerged as the top blockchain for NFTs over the past 24 hours, recording over US$22.2 million, as of 1:40 p.m. ET.

This represents an increase of 76.04% from the previous day’s sales of US$12.6 million.

The number of NFT transactions also rose by 19%, from 5,744 to 6,835, indicating a surge in activity on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Ethereum recorded sales of over US$14.8 million, a decrease of 15.72% from Thursday, while Solana had US$8.7 in sales, a 4.22% drop.

Polygon, an Ethereum scaler, also made notable strides in the past 24 hours.
