Why Create NFT Art?

For sure, NFT art will appeal to you if you’re a budding artist. Why is that so?

  1. Firstly, NFTs are immutable.

    NFTs do not only represent digital art. NFTs also retain their security and originality through encrypted code. Said code identifies the digital art as unique and stores on-chain information. This includes the date of creation, the NFT owner, NFT creator, and so forth. With the above, NFTs cannot be replicated. Now, some NFT skeptics would disagree. They would make jokes like, “Well, I could just screenshot your NFT and its mine!” and such. Well, that’s like saying I own the Mona Lisa just because I took a screenshot and printed it on a canvas. It doesn’t work like that.

  2. Secondly, NFTs can reach a wider audience.

    In fact, the NFT sector in 2021 amounts to a total worth of USD $15.7 billion! Yes, you read that right. Billion with a “B.” Analysts are also expecting the NFT sector to achieve USD $122.43 billion in 2028! That’s a huge growth estimate. Furthermore, NFT sales and unique buyers have also skyrocketed from 2018 till today. This data shows that NFTs have the ability to garner huge adoption. As a budding artist, you would want to capture a piece of this pie.

  3. Thirdly, NFTs have artist-friendly marketplaces.

    Indeed, blockchain and NFTs have made purchasing art so much easier today. Marketplaces like OpenSea, Rarible, Magic Eden, and even Binance cater to both buyers and sellers. They do so by creating great user interfaces and features for buyers. For artists, they create great NFT creation tools and charge low fees for every sale. This makes NFT sales much easier and cheaper for NFT artists.

  4. Lastly, large corporations are hopping on the NFT bandwagon.

    Some examples include:

    • Adidas.Into The Metaverse” was a project born in collaboration with gmoney, Bored Ape Yacht Club, and Punks Comic. From here, Adidas conducts regular NFT sales.
    • Coca-Cola. A charity auction was held to raise money from Coca-Cola NFTs. These include a Friendship Box, Bubble Jacket, and so forth.
