Solana's bet on NFT
Solana is known to be betting heavily on the NFT sector. This was also the point made by blockchain co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko, who recently said that NFTs could become a big Disney-like entertainment industry in the future.
Looking at the graph above, we can see that the quantitative breakthrough of Solana NFT took place first at the end of August and then again in September. Apart from this, NFT minting on Solana is also growing at a great pace and has already reached the mark of 350,000 weekly NFT mints.
While Solana itself and its community await the long anticipated transition of the blockchain to the main network, the infrastructure around it continues to expand and impose competition on its main rival, Ethereum.Source
