Blur Emerges as NFT Lending Giant, Capturing 82% of Market Share

Not long ago, Blur proclaimed its entry into the NFT lending arena, and since then, it has logged $308 million in NFT loan volume. This information stems from a May 25, 2023, study published by, indicating that 46.2% of the NFT marketplace’s transactions now involve loan activities.

Sara Gherghelas from Dappradar explains that while Blur has monopolized NFT lending volumes across the sector, the trading volume on their platform has diminished. “The trading volume over the past seven days was $104.35 million, a 15.93% decline from the preceding week,” Gherghelas states. “This shift suggests that Blur is currently being primarily used for loans rather than trading. In fact, in the last seven days, nearly half (46.20%) of Blur’s activity originated from NFT loans, transacted by an average of 306 unique daily users.”

The fluctuations in trade volume might be ascribed to Ethereum’s overall decrease in NFT sales over the last 30 days, sliding 26% lower than last week. Conversely, Bitcoin-based NFTs have taken center stage, securing roughly $175,084,024 in NFT sales over the previous month, as data from suggests. In spite of the surge in Bitcoin-oriented NFT trade volume, 30-day sales across 22 blockchains dipped 10.15% lower than the preceding month’s figures.
