Non-fungible tokens are unique digital assets that are stored on a blockchain, such as Ethereum. They are called "non-fungible" because they cannot be exchanged for other tokens or assets on a one-to-one basis like traditional cryptocurrencies (which are called "fungible" tokens). Instead, each NFT is unique and has its own set of attributes and characteristics that make it distinct from other NFTs.

NFT collections are groups of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that are typically related to a particular theme or concept. People may buy NFT collections for a variety of reasons, such as to collect and trade rare and unique digital items, to support the creators of the NFTs, or for the potential appreciation in value over time.

NFT collections may include a variety of different types of digital assets, such as art, collectibles, in-game items, music, and more. Some NFT collections may be created by individual artists or creators, while others may be developed by larger organizations or companies.

Many people who buy NFT collections are collectors or investors who are interested in acquiring rare or unique digital assets that may increase in value over time. Others may be fans of the themes or concepts represented by the NFTs in the collection, and may want to show their support for the creators by purchasing their work. Some people may also buy NFT collections simply for the enjoyment of owning and displaying digital items that are meaningful to them.

Here are some top NFT projects and their success…

Bored Ape Yacth Club

Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is an NFT project by Yuga Labs. It contains a collection of unique NFT 10,000-pixel avatars on the Ethereum blockchain. The NFTs in the collection act as keys to an exclusive club with a growing list of benefits.

Although first launched in April of 2021, this NFT project has quickly become one of the well-known NFTs and looks competitive. The popularity of BAYC is greatly attributed to celebrity sponsorships. Numerous companies and celebrities have been persuaded by BAYC to purchase items from its NFT collection. One of the companies adding to the excitement over the NFT collection is Adidas. In collaboration with Bored Ape Yacht Club, Gmoney, and PUNKS Comic, Adidas unveiled "Into the Metaverse," a native digital collectible. Following the collaboration, BAYC tweeted a picture of a Bored Ape sporting an Adidas jacket, Gmoney tweeted a silhouette of a person wearing an Adidas sweater, and PUNKS Comic tweeted a picture of a person sporting an Adidas-branded shirt. Beyond those already stated, other famous people that purchased BAYC include NBA superstar Steph Curry, billionaire Mark Cuban, well-known DJ and Twitter personality Steve Aoki, Twitter musicians Post Malone and Mike Shinoda, and producer and composer Timbaland.

There are 10,000 of these images, which are pixelated, punky-looking images that depict both male and female characters, as well as those that mimic zombies, apes, and aliens. Each punk is one of a kind and is sold both by individual owners and at prestigious auction houses, such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s, sometimes for very high prices.

Overall, Cryptopunks are considered valuable because they represent the first NFT collection ever to be created on the ETH blockchain.The highest-value CryptoPunk collection was sold for 124,457 ETH, equivalent to 532 million USD.

Celebrity ownership of CryptoPunks can increase the tokens’ value. Among the well-known people who own CryptoPunks are:

  • Rapper and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg owns nine CryptoPunks, including two zombie punks worth $2 million each.

Azuki NFTs provide their holders advantages in addition to excellent art, such as: "Membership access to The Garden: a corner of the internet where artists, builders, and web3 aficionados congregate to create a decentralized future. Access to exclusive drops, activities, and more is available to Azuki holders.

It’s also important to note that the overall market strategy of Azuki seems to be working pretty well.

Martin, meanwhile, had been minting his own pieces and growing his creative brand within the NFT space for about a year.

Considering the young age of the Doodles project, it’s incredible to see the growth and accomplishments achieved by this project and its three founders.
