What is the Most Expensive NFT

NFTs are gaining more and more popularity per day and with popularity comes unpredictable and exagerated pricing. Let's take a look at some of the most expensive NFTs sold until now.

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) are getting more and more popular every day. If you haven’t heard about it yet, it is the original version of a product with a special certificate of authenticity. They are sold in blockchains mainly in Etherium.

NFTs differ from any other kind of coin. You can sell everything as NFT, starting from something simple to something extraordinary. As long as it’s original, it can be considered as NFT.

NFT became popular throughout 2021. Various things were sold as NFTs, but currently, all the attention is concentrated on the digital arts. Pieces of art that are worth millions of dollars are sold as jpeg files, and famous people and influencers are getting involved in this new hype.

When we say pieces of art, we imagine artworks by Leonardo Da Vinci or Vincent van Gogh, but not today. Today a lot of collections like the Bored Ape Yacht Club and CryptoPunks are considered the most expensive pieces of art. And no matter what the world thinks about it.
