JPMorgan Says Ethereum Is Losing Ground to Solana in the NFT Sector

Due to notably high transaction fees on the Ethereum blockchain, JPMorgan’s analysts, led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, believe that the largest smart contracts platform is already losing ground to rivals such as Solana in the non-fungible token (NFT) sector.

JPMorgan pointed out that Ethereum’s volume share of NFT trading has fallen from around 95% recorded at the start of 2021 to 80%.

In a research note sent to clients, Panigirtzoglou wrote:

“It looks like, similar to DeFi apps, congestion and high gas fees has been inducing NFT applications to use other blockchains.”

According to the major bank’s findings as stated in the report, the Solana network had been seizing market share from Ethereum in recent weeks.


Panigirtzoglou emphasized that if Ethereum keeps losing ground to rival blockchains, it would become a big problem for the market value of Ethereum:

“If the loss of its NFT share starts looking more sustained in 2022, that would become a bigger problem for ethereum’s valuation.”
