FLOW Blockchain Surpasses $1 Billion in All-Time NFT Sales
Flow continues to cross non-fungible token (NFT) milestones after reaching new landmarks to become one of the top five biggest blockchains by all-time sales volume.
Flow is one of the most popular blockchains when it comes to taking a stake in digital collectibles since the platform was created with the sole purpose of creating scalable and low-cost NFTs. According to Be[In]Crypto Research, Flow had a total sales volume in the region of $1.06 billion, as of June 5.
This comes as a massive boost to Flow after its native asset, FLOW, fell steeply in the market crash of May, erasing 50% of the coin’s price.
This milestone has placed Flow in fourth place behind Solana, Ronin, and Ethereum. With that said, Flow is above Polygon, WAX, Avalanche, Immutable X, Palm, Tezos, Panini, and Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
