2021 really was the year NFTs came to age, the NFT market generated over $23 billion in 2021. And just a few days into 2022, the NFT market space only seems to grow. 

As celebrities, athletes, musicians, and artists continue to offer their own NFTs to fans, NFT adoption continues to rise. Christies and other auction houses have begun to accept the idea of auctioning digital art.

We can’t say what the future holds but one thing is for sure – as more and more NFT comes into existence only the unique and original will get a chance to stand out. Things are only going to get more exciting in the world of NFTs, so brace yourself.
