Aoki is Confident About NFTs, Set To Launch “Neon Future”
In contrast to the belief that NFTs are in a bubble and will soon fade away, Aoki is bullish that the NFT trend will last. According to the announcement, Aoki and Bilyeu are coming together to launch the “Neon Future” NFT set. The pieces were created by digital artist Maciej Juciara, and it is set to go live on Nifty Gateway on the 27th of April. Also, the DJ has composed five original music tracks for the project.
In a tweet, Bilyeu expressed his excitement about the new partnership.
Getting to partner with @steveaoki and @maciej_kuciara on this amazing NFT series inspired by #NeonFuture is a mind bogglingly cool moment for me.

Confident about NFTs, Bilyeu predicted that a time would come where people will own the NFT version of their car.
The anticipated NFTs will not be Aoki’s first launch. The DJ launched the “Dream Catcher” series on the 7th of March. The launch was in collaboration with artist Antoni Tudisco. Same as the upcoming NFT drop, Dream Catcher was available on Nifty Gateway.
After a successful launch of the NFTs, the Dream Catcher generated $4.25 million in sales. Out of the total sales, there was an $888,888 winning bid from a single piece of the art. The hge single bud came from T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) CEO John Legera.
The NFT Market
The NFT space saw a great deal of expansion in early 2021. Lately, the NFT market has been bubbling with celebrities and notable individuals making debuts into the sector. However, a report from NonFungible.com showed that sales declined in April.
According to Aoki, he likes to “be early in as many things as possible.” He said that his investment in Bitcoin was when the digital asset was trading around $11,000. At the time, Aoki said he thought it was late. However, he is trying to be more cautious by constantly on the watch “for the next thing” like NFTs.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk mentioned his attempt into the NFT market in February. Shortly after starting his NFT action, he told followers that he had changed his mind. Aoki revealed his desire to partner with Musk in the future. “I’ve been trying to actually work with him. I want to be in a room with him for a few hours and just get into a zone and start to create,” said he.
