Earlier this week, Snoop Dogg joined Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson in a Twitter space to discuss music, NFTs and cryptocurrencies.
Cardano is a smart contract platform that is often touted as an Ethereum ETH/USD rival blockchain. Last month, Cardano’s head of ecosystem growth Morgan Schofield announced that the blockchain had successfully minted 4 million NFTs.
Still, Ethereum remains the most dominant chain for NFT trading accounting for 97% of total volume.
According to data from Defi Llama, the NFT trading volume on Ethereum is around $19.85 billion. Cardano ranks eighth among all blockchains with about $29.4 million in NFT trading volume.
Price Action: According to data from Benzinga Pro, ADA was trading at $0.95, down 6.7% in the last 24 hours. ETH was trading at $3,013, down 5.26% over the same period.
