Additionally, as of Oct 25, the trading volume for the Collectible Avatars is up 799%, as the project saw widespread adoption. Potential purchasers can find the NFTs on Vault, Reddit’s crypto wallet. They can then wear and display the avatars as profile pictures after creating content on the popular social media platform.

As a result of the Reddit Avatar craze, users created over 3 million wallets and minted over 89,000 NFTs. Despite the fact that the number of users declined in the previous hours, the overall sales continued to flourish.

Notably, Reddit NFTs’ success came on the back of tanking sales in the sector.

NFT Sales Plunged 97%

According to a Bloomberg report in late September, NFT sales have gone from $17 billion in January to merely $466 million in September. The demise of the NFT mania came with the over $2 trillion wipeout that took over the crypto market since it peaked in November 2022.

Additionally, according to Dune, NFT Marketplaces LooksRare and OpenSea were the leading platforms in dollar sales before the ubiquitous decline.

NFT Sales Plunged 97%

Despite the decline, it is early to call the time of death on NFTs. As CoinChapter reported in September, tech giant Apple went ‘super greedy’ on the NFT sector, boosting sales.

The IT giant’s decision to charge a 30% commission on nonfungible tokens (NFT) sold through apps on its marketplace. This has angered NFT developers and others, given Apple is treating NFT transactions in the same way as standard in-app purchases.

It is not likely that Reddit NFT avatars alone could revive the dwindling non-fungible token market. However, they could still prove valuable to their holders, as the number of NFT traders hasn’t changed dramatically amid the trading volume collapse, according to last month’s statistics.
