Triana's 2023 NFT Watch List

2023 is every project's chance to capture significant "attention market share". Based on a Q3 2022 report from Messari Research, it's more clear than ever that attention and liquidity have evaporated from the space after a brutal start to what will likely be a long crypto bear market pinned down by widespread financial recessions across the world.

While the average NFT daily trading volumes dropped dramatically, the average number of daily traders witnessed a much smaller decline.
