NFT, short for non-fungible tokens, is taking the world by storm. The first digital asset to make headlines was “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” NFT by American artist Beeple, sold for USD 69 million in March 2021- slightly more than one year ago. With such large sums being invested in digital assets, more investors have found their way into the metaverse via the more popular NFT projects.
The NFT space continues to witness new project launches every day. People of all walks of life, from world-renowned singers to movie stars to public figures, are investing in digital assets and showcasing them on social media. In turn, this has contributed to a thriving market for NFTs.
Today we’ll take a close look at some of the most adorable, delightful and unique NFTs with interesting utilities that have captured the attention of many. Some of these are slated to be released in the upcoming months. The Cryptoverze Editors’ Picks are in no particular order, are not exhaustive and do not constitute investment advice.
