NFTs continue to dominate public minds
The entry into NFTs by Aoki and Bilyeu is yet more proof that these assets are taking over public consciousness. The Neon Future series, like other NFTs, is associating itself with exclusive items fans can make use of.
NFTs have been around for years, but only recently have obtained a hold in the mind of the mainstream. The NBA Top Shot program, musician The Weeknd’s exclusive music, and Elon Musk have all brought the spotlight onto it.
The appeal of NFTs lies in its simplicity of use and its exclusivity. Cryptocurrencies until now still remain obtuse to the larger public, which Gemini spoke of in a recent report. Many are eager to learn more about cryptocurrencies, but lack direction in their education.
