Leading Ethereum NFT floor prices, sales fall while Ordinals rise

The value of the price floor for several leading Ethereum NFT collections has seen a significant drop over the last week, while Bitcoin Ordinals have increased.

According to CoinGecko and Magic Eden, collections reported declines in the price floors of Bored Ape Yacht Club by 37%, Mutant Ape Yacht Club by 42%, and Pudgy Penguins by 38%. Conversely, the NodeMonkes Ordinals collection on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain has witnessed a 65% increase in value during the same timeframe.

The price floor refers to the minimum price at which an NFT from a collection is available for sale. The fluctuation in value is accompanied by a noticeable decrease in monthly trading volumes and the number of trades for NFTs on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain.
