In the last month there has also been an increase in sales with around 293,000 trades in total. This was a 36% jump from the previous month.

A large part of this expansion can be attributed to the migration of the popular NFT project, y00ts.

However, network adoption was a cause for concern as the number of new addresses fell sharply since the peak observed on March 31, data from Santiment revealed. The weighted sentiment, which was trending in the negative territory, supported the above behavior.
