In its report, Dappradar said in terms of cryptocurrencies, Dogecoin was the luckiest cryptocurrency regarding its performance. Dogecoin closed at $0.12 this month, with a 50% increase since the beginning of the month. The growth was driven by Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter worth $44 billion.
Regarding the NFTs, the trading volume of NFTs was down by 30% from September, recording $662 million, the lowest amount registered this year. Moreover, the value of total sales declined by 30% month-over-month.
Nevertheless, the report mentioned a growth in the number of unique traders by 18% to 1.11 million, saying it shows that new people are becoming more interested in entering the NFT industry and that the demand is still high.
