The world of NFT art is a billion-dollar business. Not surprisingly, everyone from Grimes to Damien Hirst is involved in a lucrative venture. However, sometimes it can be difficult to know which artists are worth paying attention to.
First, you need to answer the question of what is NFT art.
In the modern world, many things have lost their physical value. In just a few years, virtual clothing and augmented reality games have appeared, and the popularity of streaming services has increased exponentially. Therefore, it is not surprising that in the era of new technologies, new art has also appeared.
NFT art is, in fact, digital art, the works which exist only on digital media (although no one prevents you from printing a piece of crypto art, as you do with a regular picture from the Internet). Paris Hilton, Eminem, Justin Bieber, and even Snoop Dogg now have a digital art collection. They are not afraid to spend a lot of money on the work of digital artists, despite the fact that many experts call NFT art just a kind of hype.
NFTs art continues to be hugely popular. Non-fungible tokens are works of art created on the blockchain with unique encryption codes, the authenticity, and ownership of which can be verified. An NFT might be anything from a piece of digital art to an album.
