The cryptocurrency movement started not less than ten years ago with the movement evolving stronger day by day. Over the years various government agencies and organization has made several attempts to clamp down on the use of cryptocurrencies but it has all ended in a futile effort.
This article is not written to cover the basics of cryptocurrencies that we already know, besides If you are coming in for the first time and you want to understand the basics of cryptocurrencies, I wrote a comprehensive guide on this blog to help you with the basic knowledge of cryptocurrencies with a link below.
Luckily for you, if you already know about cryptocurrencies, I am going to be showing you another wonder that has been discovered through cryptocurrencies.
These wonders are called Non-fungible tokens, popularly known as NFT’s.
If you are new to the cryptocurrency world, there are possible chances that you might hear of how NFT’s have started making waves globally, also, you might have seen how creatives get to protect their work with these, and also make money at the same time.
In this article, we are going to be going in-depth into the world of NFT’s and also discover how we can take advantage of this new global trend.
What are (Non-Fungible tokens) NFT’s?
In this section, I am going to be taking things step by step by defining what ” Non-fungible means”.
Non-fungible” means that it’s unique and can’t be replaced with something else.
Bitcoin, Etherum, Sol coins are fungible, meaning that they can be traded for something else such as other coins and even cash, but this is not the same with “Non-Fungible tokens”.
Non-fungible tokens are digital assets that represent real-world objects like art, music, and videos.
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) allow you to buy and sell ownership of unique digital items and keep track of who owns them using the blockchain.
Why You Should Start Creating NFT’s
If you are like most people who are scared of investing their hard-earned money in cryptocurrencies, then you should participate in NFT’s to become part of the cryptocurrency community and eventually benefit directly from it.
The Innovations behind NFT’s has made it possible to reach billions of cryptocurrencies users all over the world to donate to your artwork.
In this section, I am going to be noting clear reasons why you should start taking advantage of NFT’s now in their early stage.
1. You Get To Create Genuine Ownership of Your Artwork.
The world is a copycat and this has caused so many creative works to become pirated in the wrong hands, making the original creators get less for their artwork.
The foremost advantage of non-fungible tokens is evident in the proof of ownership. Since NFTs are on a blockchain network, they can help in associating ownership to a single account.
Most important of all, NFTs are indivisible and could not be distributed among multiple owners. At the same time, the ownership advantages of NFTs ensure that buyers are safe from the concerns of fake NFTs.
For example, downloading a picture of the Mona Lisa from the internet does not make you its owner, nor does it qualify you to make money selling it.
NFTs, ensure that you own the real thing and therefore have ownership overvalue. In simple words, NFTs can convert the traditional norms of verifying and managing the ownership of assets.
As you can find NFTs on a blockchain network, it is reasonable to transfer ownership of NFTs easily. Therefore, you can also find the advantage of the easy passing of asset ownership with NFTs in many real-world scenarios.
2. NFT’s Makes Your work Authentic.
One of the benefits of non-fungible tokens relies on the uniqueness of the tokens. NFTs are created on the blockchain, thereby implying the corporation of unique records with them. The unique traits of NFTs showcase their potential for providing value.
At the same time, NFT creators have the privilege of issuing only a specific number of NFTs to introduce scarcity of supply, thereby making the artwork expensive.
Immutability in blockchain-based NFTs ensures that they are immune to modifications, removal, or replacement. Therefore, NFTs can easily showcase their authenticity as the most valuable quality.
3. Creation of Economic Opportunity
Up until now, Content creators have frequently encountered the concerns of other platforms gulping down their profits and potential for earning in form of middlemen.
For example, A music artist selling his song on Spotify, Amazon Music and many others would have shares of the profit of their work collected by these middlemen, thereby causing a reduction in total profit, but this is not the case in NFT’s.
In NFT’s the totality of your artwork belongs to you, making you the sole owner of all rewards that it attracts. The benefits of non-fungible tokens could lead to the expansion and growth of a completely new creator economy.
With the help of NFTs, the ownership of content is blended into the content only. So, when the creators sell their content, the funds directly go to them. If a new owner sells the NFT, the creator could receive royalties by setting up smart contracts while developing NFTs.
The original creator can earn royalties for each re-sale of the token since the NFT metadata includes the creator’s address, This can go on for as long as it can.
4. Boost Inclusive Growth.
In a traditional setting, when an artwork is created and sold at an auction, the art creator, gets to make money on that instance only and knows nothing about that art as soon as it leaves their custody, this is entirely different in the world of NFT’s because you get to collect artwork from the initial creator of the artwork at a certain cost which is made directly to that person.
On the other hand, buyers have the option of liquidity in different types of assets with the help of NFT’s, and if you intend to sell that same artwork, for a higher value, the original creator of that same art also gets a certain royalty.
How To Start Investing In NFT’s.
You can start benefiting from the wonders of NFT’s as an artist or a collector. NFTs have exploded in popularity during the pandemic, leading many investors to wonder how to buy them.
Digital art from the artist Beeple and the popular pixelated CryptoPunks character portraits have each been sold as an NFT worth millions of dollars.
Artists, collectors, and speculators alike have gathered to the movement as cryptocurrencies and other digital assets have skyrocketed in price. In this section, I am going to spell out how to start investing in NFT’s from both sides.
NFT’s lives in a blockchain, this is to say that there are various ways of creating NFT’s. I find it shocking when people only talk about only a sing;e way method to creating NFT’s which are native to Etherum and leave out other Blockchain platforms such as Solana and Binance Open chain.
There are various ways to start creating NFL’s It all depends on the blockchain that you want your NFT’s to exist. To start creating NFT’s you need to get the following setup.
1. As a Creator/Artist.
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are one of the hottest things in the world of creators at the moment, particularly in digital art.
People spent more than $300 million in the first two months of 2021 alone, and that was before Beeple shocked the world with a $69 million sale in March.
Are you a creator? do you have a talent in art, music or Videography, then you are just one step to actualizing your Million dollar dream.
1. Get Creative.
The first thing you want to do before venturing into the world of NFT’s is to get your house in order, this also means that you need to ensure that you have enough creative works to be deployed.
Most NFT artists do their artwork in collections, making them more valuable and eye-catchy, and if all you have is just a single piece of art, they are still good to go, just make sure to have enough on your plates.
Moreover, you should bear in mind that all NFT’s are digital artwork, this is to remind you if you have only physical artworks available, you need them to be converted into digital files such as images, audios or Video files.
Just in case you are new to going digital with your art, Digital art for beginners doesn’t have to be that difficult. Digital art is a talent that is perfected through time and practice. There are, however, a few steps that you have to check off before you start getting familiar with digital art.
You will need a tablet or computer to work with when creating digital art. It can be an Android or Apple tablet. I suggest you purchase a pen to go with it such as the Apple pencil, or a Digiroot Universal Stylus for Android devices. (Digiroot Stylus Link opens to Amazon to find out the price).
1. Choose an illustration software, program, or app on which you want to make your digital art, I prefer Adobe illustrator
2. Sketch and decide what you want to create.
3. Practice, practice, practice to get yourself familiar with the software you are using.
4. Watch videos, tutorials, or join courses to learn more about how to create digital art and start creating till you get perfect.
2. Choose your prefered Blockchain platform.
The next step to creating NFT’s is to decide on what blockchain platform you want your NFT to live on. The most popular by far is Etherum, but you can try out other blockchain platforms like Binance and Solana because they support NFT’s too.
3. List your NFT on a marketplace.
NFT marketplaces are platforms where NFTs can be stored, listed, traded and in some cases minted (created). You need a place to store your digital art as soon as you finish creating them, the same way you also need a platform to be able to invest in potential growing digital arts.
These marketplaces are just like conventional marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon and Alibaba.
To access and use these types of marketplaces, you will need to have the following on the ground.
1. A crypto wallet.
A cryptocurrency wallet is an app that allows cryptocurrency users to store and retrieve their digital assets. As with traditional currency, you don’t need a wallet to spend your cash, but it certainly helps to keep it all in one place.
When a user obtains cryptocurrency, such as bitcoins, she can store it in a cryptocurrency wallet and from there use it to make transactions.
For example, if you plan to buy or sell NFTs based on the Ethereum blockchain platform, you will need to use a compatible Ethereum wallet such as MetaMask.
For NFTs sold on the Solana platform, you will need to use a wallet service such as Sollet, or Phantom and so on depending on the individual blockchain service.
2. some coins in the wallet.
A little amount of coin is needed in your crypto wallet before buying, listing or minting an NFT. Again, you will need to find out which cryptocurrencies are supported by the marketplace you intend to use.
For example, if you plan to list on Opensea.io then you need some ether, you need some SOL to list on Solnart.
3. A user account registered on the Marketplace.
You will need to set up an account on the particular marketplace you wish to purchase NFTs from. It’s worth noting that, for the most part, listing and creating NFTs on a marketplace platform incurs a blockchain network fee.
The fee differs depending on which blockchain-based system you decide to use. For example, Ethereum boasts the largest ecosystem of NFT dapps (decentralized applications). But it has the most expensive fees.
4. Choose your prefered Marketplace.
However, various marketplaces can help you with listing your NFT arts as a creator, in this section, I am going to be dropping a few ones that would be useful to you.
OpenSea was the first decentralized non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace for buying, selling, and trading NFTs.It was founded in January 2018 by Alex Atallah and Devin Finzer.
OpenSea brands itself as the biggest marketplace for digital goods.
Since its development, OpenSea has experienced significant growth, as have NFTs in general accumulating sales of over $6.3 Billion and still counting.
In this section, I am going to be giving you a walk-through guide on how to get started with listing your first NFT on Opensea.io.
1. log in to opensea.io.
After signing up on opensea.io, you would be prompted to link your crypto wallet to be able to make payments and also be asked to fill in your profile details as recommended by the platform.
Doing this makes your profile appear genuine to collectors, you would be shooting yourself in the foot if you don’t do this.
2. Create a collection on Opensea.io.
A collection on opensea allows you to group similar arts in one place. Creating a collection is not compulsory, but it makes sense to group similar arts in a collection to be able to attract collectors on the platform.
It is common practice for every serious NFT creator to group their artwork into a collection so that they can compete in the crypto market, as successful pieces of art that you see in the NFT marketplace are properly collected.
To create a collection in opensea.io, you need to navigate the section as shown below and fill in the details appropriately.
One important part of the collection section is the choice of Blockchain as shown below. This section allows you to choose which blockchain that you want your NFT to live on, and opensea.io comes with two options which are Etherum and Polygon.
If all you want to be able to sell your NFT for free without paying any Gas Fee, then I recommend you select Polygon as your blockchain, selecting Etherum will make you pay over $300 in gas fee before your NFT can be listed on the market place.
Also, bear in mind that when you choose a certain Blockchain for your collection, you will not be able to change it anymore, you have to delete that collection and create a new one with the appropriate settings in mind.
3. Start adding your art to opensea.io.
After creating the collection, the next step is to start uploading the individual pieces of art at your disposal and tag them to the collection that you previously created.
You can do this by clicking the create button in the Opensea.io dashboard and filling up the details as listed to you.
Also, make sure that you set the default blockchain as polygon so as not to pay a Gas Fee, you can as well decide to choose Etherum because it is popular and ROI is guaranteed because your NFT is automatically Supported on Opensea, Rarible, and Cargo App, which makes it a better option.
4. Mint Your art.
Minting is the process of validating information, creating a new block, and recording that information into the blockchain.
Mining and minting terms were created from real-world coin making. Gold and silver are “mined” out of the ground and then “minted” into coins for circulation, the same goes for how cryptocurrencies are brought into existence.
The next and final step to take to finally list your art on the NFT market is to mint it to a blockchain, this automatically makes your NFT available on your prefered blockchain, either Etherum or Polygon which finally makes it available to the entire public for purchase.
All you need to do to be able to mint your NFT is to set up how many pieces of your art you want in circulation and how many you want to be able to release. Looking at NFT for the first time, I see it as creating and listing a token.
5. Promote Your NFT’s.
The NFT market welcomes all artists from world-famous with a million audience on social media channels and other promotional channels, to begin with.
A lot of creators release their NFT collections or separate artworks every day. We believe that you are a great artist and your artworks are unique. However, sometimes that it is not enough to get your art to the right collectors.
By promoting your art, you attract the attention of more people who are likely to spend their means on it.
Nevertheless, some artists, especially beginners who do not have a marketing team, just mint NFTs and stop there, these particular individuals end up getting their arts dumped in the junkyards.
Now that you have succeeded in creating and listing your NFT, the next thing is to employ the necessary steps in getting your NFT’s to go viral which in turn makes you money.
In this section, I am going to list out possible promotional channels to help you successfully position your NFT for success.
1. Start a website(SEO).
A business’s online presence, regardless of industry, can have a massive impact on its success. In this day and age, some businesses still don’t realize that a majority of their customers will visit their website before making a purchase.
Having a strong online presence, particularly a website, can be a make or break for generating more revenue. Yes, the quality of your website impacts results, but the purpose of this article is to stress the importance of making sure you have a website.
Owning a website does not automatically allow you to generate sales as an NFT artist, you also have to be able to effectively optimize your website for search engine optimization, and this is where blogging needs to be utilized alongside your website.
Blogging is fast becoming the quickest way to express yourself online. With it being both free and potentially valuable to start a blog, more people are joining the blogging community than ever.
These days, not all companies have embraced the blogging world, what the majority of them do is own a professional website and not bother about optimizing it for search engines like Google, using a blog that is regularly updated to show current offers and promotions, potential clients and readers will see you as more approachable, current, and most importantly more involved in your business.
For instance, as an NFT art, you can create a website that describes what your art is all about and at the same start blogging on the side which helps you rank on Google, attract potential readers who will eventually collect your art.
I wrote a comprehensive guide on this blog to help you get started with owning your first website/blog, click the link below.

2. Use Twitter.
Twitter is working to dive into the rising market on NFTs, which has seen digital artworks take on a new life of their own, which has gone viral and also generated billions in sales.
If you are following the trend on Twitter users switching their profile images to portraits of animated monkeys, cats, trolls, and a broad range of other creations are ways to showcase their NFT’s to the world.
Twitter is seeking ways to integrate a feature that allows NFT artists to link NFT’s with their purchase activity that would then enable Twitter to provide a mark of ownership on any NFTs displayed (an ‘Ethereum checkmark’ as Twitter refers to it), this coming feature will make it easy for it NFT artist promote their collections.
Twitter is also developing a new ‘Collectible’ tab, where users would be able to display their owned NFTs to profile visitors (note, too, the ‘Reactions’ tab instead of ‘Likes’, which is connected to Twitter’s ongoing.
The founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey has been a major advocate for cryptocurrency over the last decade he has pushed for the development of the crypto community on his platform, this remains the major reason why Twitter has a huge cryptocurrency community on it than every online community on the internet.

3. Create a Discord.
Discord is a web-based communication app like Slack, which many users are familiar with due to its widespread use in the business world, Discord is in the same category.
Over the years, Discord has grown in popularity and has evolved from being a tool for gamers into a full-fledged service for anyone looking to chat or join online communities.
Discord was first released by Jason Citron and Stanislav Vishnevskiy in 2015, the app quickly became popular with gamers.
On Discord, users can engage in voice and video chats, send private text-based messages, and take part in communities, which are called “servers” on the platform.
Users can even begin their communities, aka servers, and invite users to join. Inside each server, users can set up channels assigned to specific topics so that users on each server can discuss with others the issues they would like to discuss.
Discord is completely free to join. Yes, other chat services like Slack have free tiers with messaging limits.
Discord does not have any such limits. It’s completely free to use with complete access to your messages, history, communities, etc. Furthermore, it’s free to start your server too.
Discord enables you to Check out as many servers as you can and engage with the community. Share your art, discuss ideas, and make some friends. Getting pretty personal will go a longer way than just spamming links everywhere.
4. Telegram is Awesome.
Telegram is a social chat platform that has more than 400 million active monthly users currently present on it. The growing popularity of the platform allows marketers to enjoy many of the following advantages, such as allowing marketers to keep their audience informed with the use of Telegram channels which can create either a publicly or privately channel and invite your current customers to join it.
Telegram groups is also another feature on the Telegram platform that allows you to interact with your customers directly. A Telegram group is a chat where you can communicate with your audience, and your group members can interact with one another. You can also add administrators to manage your group more efficiently.
You can let your loyal customers help new leads by answering questions about your product or service with a group. Telegram Groups are a great opportunity to build a community.
Chatbots remains another amazing feature present in Telegram that allows you to Delegate answering FAQs, handle orders, and consult clients to chatbots, which is available 24/7.
This way, your customer support team can work on more complicated issues, develop auto-reply flows to send messages after a user enters a keyword specified by you, for example, “delivery,” “price,” or “refund.
Finally, you can leverage Telegram to drive traffic to a website. Share links to your landing pages, invite your customers to check out your new collection or share a link to your client reviews.
This way, you get to increase traffic to specific site pages which of course can be your NFT collection.

5. TikTok Helps a Lot.
There are over 1 Billion users on TikTok with a majority of these users coming from the US alone, If you own a business, TikTok marketing can be a great channel for your brand, as there is relatively little competition on the platform. However, if you’re new to TikTok, you may not know how you can use it to market your company.
Using TikTok for marketing is much easier than you think. There are currently three key options for brands looking to utilize TikTok for promotion and some of them includes; Creating your brands’ channel and uploading videos relevant to your business that stands a chance of going viral, making use of social media influencers to open your content to a much broader (but well-targeted) audience or better still Pay to advertise utilizing TikTok’s new campaign options, the combination of these three options makes it easier for you to go viral on this platform and attract sales to your NFT’s.

6. Facebook is Great.
If you’re a brand hoping to thrive on social media, mastering Facebook marketing is going to be key. More than 2.8 billion people use the platform every single month. That’s a lot of potential eyeballs on your business.
If you are working with a limited budget, you can set up your Facebook Page for your business free of charge on Facebook. This business page can be used to showcase your NFT’s and every activity behind their development including a link for prospective collectors to begin collecting.
Then, once you have created your Page, you can use it to create content, share your contact information, link to your website, build a product catalogue and communicate with your customers which is also free.
If you do have some cash to spare there is an option to use paid marketing strategies like Facebook ads and sponsored posts from your Facebook Business Page, too.
As at the time of writing this post, Facebook just announced a change of brand name which came alongside tons of development to the future, amongst which includes, company’s metaverse support for non-fungible tokens (NFT) in a possible boost to the Ethereum protocol, where the digital collectables format has thrived which will, in turn, will it easier for people to sell Limited Edition digital objects like NFTs, display them in their digital spaces and even resell them to the next person securely.
If you ask me, I think this is good news for cryptocurrency enthusiasts all over the world, with the previous efforts being used to fight against cryptocurrency advancement by the government, this is a sign that in the long run cryptocurrencies are going to become mainstream.

7. Instagram Works Fine.
Instagram as a social media platform has moved to an entirely different level making businesses of all sizes in every industry capable enough to hold a huge base of potential customers through their posts at every opportunity.
Just look at the numbers. Instagram, started in 2010 and absorbed by the social media giant Facebook in 2012, now has one billion active monthly users and 700 million daily active users. Of these, 400 million users check out Instagram stories regularly.
One of the most important stats concerning Instagram for business? 72% of Instagram users have purchased a product or service they saw on their feed, this also makes it a win-win for cryptocurrency enthusiasts who intend to make a voice out of it.
You can decide to publicize your NFT’s via the use of Instagram by optimizing your Bio, showcasing your NFT’s which will, in turn, create and generate awareness.

2. Become an NFT collector.
NFT marketplace such as Opensea.io brings about two categories of people which includes the collectors and the artists. NFT artists are those who create the artworks as stated above while the collectors are those who shop this artwork at an early stage and resell later for profit.
All you need do as an NFT collector is to be able to spot a lot of these arts in their initial stage and purchase them as soon as possible before they go viral and begin to appreciate.
Most NFT collectors will be on the losing end because they don’t know how to identify a profitable project. You also must know that not all NFT projects is going to be a success.
There are major factors that drive the success of any NFT, you just need enough information to be able to discern which one helps you hit the jackpot.
In this section, I am going to be listing out signs you should watch out for when collecting NFT’s for profit.
DYOR stands for “Do Your Research” — it is a term and acronym that gets bandied about a lot in the world of Crypto.
Essentially, the statement suggests that in Crypto-economy, your success in the crypto-world depends on you to study the projects and discover their viability before actually investing in such projects.
Just in case you have no idea how cryptocurrency works, I recommend you click the link below to get started.
Here’s a list of important factors to consider while investing in NFTs.
1. The Influence and Size Of Community.
The driving force of any thriving cryptocurrency project is largely dependent on the size of its community, the more influence a crypto project can gain over time, the more profitable it becomes, that is why cryptocurrencies are called community economy, meaning that it takes like-minded people coming together to make it work.
If people see that Etherium is not going to be sustainable as they feel and they find a mind-blowing new cryptocurrency with more futuristic potential then you will rapidly see the value of Ethereum go down.
Your first step should be investigating the community strength of NFTs. The most reputable NFT collections usually have a thriving collector and fan communities that define the NFTs’ influence.
If an NFT brand has little to no community, it is already certain that it’s not going to make money.
2. Identify The Creator.
The major downside of NFT’s is plagiarism, you may find a certain art intriguing, but that art might have already been created by a popular creator somewhere which defeats the entire purpose of investing in that NFT.
You are dealing with a legitimate and serious NFT project; if it has been formally launched or endorsed by a big corporation, well-known people or established NFT artist.
The traceability of NFTs is one of the things that attracts artists, brands, and creators. You can find out who created the NFT, when it was issued, how many individuals have exchanged it, and even how much it has sold for in each trade.
This will prevent you from acquiring fraudulent NFTs from con artists who just right-click and save JPEGs and then proceed on selling them off as “originals” to ignorant art collectors.
3. Use Twitter.
Twitter remains the only online space where cryptocurrency enthusiasts are free to air their opinions just because the founder, Jack Dorsey is a crypto fanatic.
Twitter remains the only social platform where NFTs and NFT art is discussed; it is the finest and best platform to find plenty of NFT projects as well as market and promote your NFT art and collectables.
The NFT community is very active on Twitter rather than on any other social media platform including Instagram. This is to imply that in the NFT community details matter and Twitter allows users to share specifics about their art in a manner that other social media platforms can’t. Twitter in the future update is planning to integrate NFT’s alongside its platform.
4. Go on Youtube.
YouTube is another great platform to look for profitable NFT initiatives, there are NFT creators with a huge following on YouTube whose NFT projects are successful from the get-go because they have a huge following.
You should subscribe to YouTube personalities who make videos on NFT and NFT artworks and collectables regularly. They would guide you on which NFTs are worth your time and money. Watching a few videos can be refreshing and it would be easier to understand the concept of how it works.
5. Follow up cryptocurrency Niche Blogs.
Following up a reputable cryptocurrency blog is essential when it comes to successfully investing in NFT’s. Most NFT projects featured on major media outlets like Crypto Punks, Tech Crunch, CoinTelegraph, The Verge, Mashable develop in size and value immediately.
Keep in mind that NFT sites with a massive community are good NFT investments. These Media Sites are powerful in such a way that any NFT project featured on these outlets gets attention which leads to massive profits, hunting for NFT Projects on these sites will help you discover amazing profitable NFT projects.
Pros and Cons of NFT’s.
NFT has suddenly become an internet sensation causing it to become one of the major innovations of our time.
The value of some NFTs has skyrocketed in the past year and attracted a lot of attention from the collector community.
Despite all the hypes around NFT’s you still need to understand the pros and cons of NFT’s. In this section, I am going to be stating out pros and cons to know when starting with NFT’s.
1. Some physical collectables (such as art) have a long track record of appreciating value, which makes them one spot when it comes to innovation.
2. Buying and selling digital assets as NFTs generates profit to potentially far more buyers and sellers because they appreciate over time.
3. The use of Smart contracts in blockchain technology can ensure that artists and creators get paid based on the use and resale of their work in the future.
1. Since most NFTs represent static assets that don’t generate any income on their own, they are primarily valued by buyer demand. Consequently, sky-high prices may not last forever, and NFTs could lose substantial value.
2. Creating and selling NFTs is not free, you need to know how much to pay in gas fee and most cases, gas fees can add up to more than an NFT is valued by other users on a marketplace.
3. NFT requires a huge community to make them profitable.
The NFT movement is still in its early stage but has portrayed itself as a potential saviour on how cryptos can make the digital economy work for more people.
One thing about NFT’s is that it makes sense to create and sell digital assets as a creator. But when it comes to buying NFTs for their value as a collectable it becomes a gamble because the value is uncertain and will constantly fluctuate based on demand for the artwork itself.
Identifying a new NFT trend early can pay off big later on. Some digital works of art that originally sold for petty values have gone on to sell for many thousands of dollars, which made lots of money for the creators.
If you have an eye for art, music, etc., and you enjoy collecting, diving into NFT investing might make sense for you.
