A new report by Chainalysis shows that more than 80% of all non-fungible token (NFT) transactions were worth less than $10,000 in 2021, which are categorized as “retail.”

The report titled “The 2021 NFT Market Explained” further showed that more substantial transactions (collector-sized) increased from 6% in March to 19% in October. In addition, less than 1 percent of all the transactions were institutional-sized. But these transactions accounted for 26% of the real trading volume during the period.

According to Chainalysis, a collector-sized transaction is worth between $10,000 and $100,000, whereas an institutional-sized transaction is worth more than $100,000.

The report revealed that institutions and collectors accounted for the major share of NFT transfer volume denominated in USD since March.

Moreover, retail transfers came to 11% of the volume and collector-sized transactions made up 63% of the volume for the time period studied.

Overall, the study shows that the NFT market is far more retail-driven than the traditional cryptocurrency market, where retail transactions make up a negligible share of all transaction volume.

Samsung Electronics has merged its mobile business with its consumer electronics division in a major restructuring. In addition to merging its business division, the company has also replaced all of its CEOs.

Samsung has named Jong-Hee Han, the head of its TV business, as Vice-Chairman and co-CEO of the newly merged mobile and consumer electronics divisions.

Samsung President Kyehyun Kyung has also been named co-CEO and will now lead its chip and components division.

Although the mobile business of Samsung generated the biggest revenue for Samsung in the third quarter of 2021, its chip business also generated substantial revenue due to increased demand for server DRAMs and for computers in general during the pandemic.

Samsung is aiming to become the number 1 chip contract manufacturer within the next decade and has invested billions of dollars into the business.

With this restructuring, Samsung aims to streamline its business structure and aims to strengthen its business competitiveness.

Toyota Motors has announced that it will build a new $1.29 billion battery plant for electrified vehicles in North Carolina, United States.

This announcement comes a few months after the Japanese automaker had earlier announced in October that it will build an electric battery manufacturing facility in the United States, a key component of the company’s plans to make 70% of its cars electric by the end of the decade.

With this new manufacturing plant, Toyota expects to be capable of producing enough lithium-ion batteries for 200,000 all-electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles when production is scheduled to begin in 2025. The company further plans to expand its battery production up to 1.2 million vehicles per year.

The electric battery manufacturing plant in North Carolina is expected to create 1,750 jobs in the state, and the investment in the facility is scheduled through 2031.

While Toyota has been slow to invest in all-electric vehicles, its move to invest in EV battery components will reduce its costs and lower the risks of supply chain disruptions.
