Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are changing the way we think about art—and investors are starting to take notice.
In the last year, NFTs have become one of the most talked about and researched terms in the Crypto world.
So, what exactly is an NFT? NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token.” It is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files.
Some NFTs are selling for insane amounts of money, and they are only gaining momentum. For example, world-renowned auction house Christie’s and artist Mike Winkelmann, known as Beeple, made non-fungible token (NFT) history towards the end of February when the house launched its first-ever auction of an NFT without any accompanying physical artwork. Bidding skyrocketed to $1 million within minutes, and finally sold for a jaw-dropping $69m. Some CryptoPunk NFTs are selling for over $7m.
We did some research and these are the top 10 trending NFTs currently available on the market:
