Artists have realized the great potential that blockchain technology can bring on board to assist them to reach a greater audience at a minimal cost. The Gemini-backed Nifty Gateway is the exchange that has facilitated most of the NFT exchange. The coronavirus pandemic has made an online business that was previously done onsite more predominant. Global meetups for artists and interested investors are now taking place through blockchain technology at the comfort of their homes. Notably, most of the proceeds from the auctioneers have ended up in charity to help the homeless and people in need.

That’s how I feel about NFTs today,” Ryan noted.
With minimal regulations in the NFT industry, investors are warned to do prior research before putting their money into the market. High net worth entrepreneurs like Mark Cuban have in the past highlighted that they are interested in the NFT market.
