Experts said that the NFT sector is still doing great despite the market crisis. At the same time, the company believes that it will continue to expand in the new year. Also in 2022, there are many new networks and decentralized applications that will grow and strengthen their market positions, which will lead to increased competition.
Earlier, DappRadar presented a report according to which the number of active crypto wallets increased by 7% in October compared to the previous month. According to experts, this may indicate a crypto winter coming to an end. However, the report was published before the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange.
