These NFT artists to watch out for focus on our carbon footprint, tech-savvy digital art, and big juicy Harley Davidson wheels
With that in mind, this guide will discuss reasons for OG NFT artists’ creating some of the most expensive NFT projects, alongside recent famous NFT artists and why.
But, first up, what makes NFT artists’ collections stand out from the crowd?
What Makes NFT Artists Special?
Like buying a piece of art from a gallery in the physical world, NFTs go up in value depending on who the artist is, alongside numerous other reasons mentioned in this article. Similarly, these digital items can only have one official owner at once, who holds a certificate proving ownership.
Look at Yuga Labs, for instance. They have connections to nearly all NFT and crypto ecosystem giants, making them an essential corporation in the space. Naturally, therefore, their digital assets are in high demand. Bored Apes and CryptoPunks sell for more than six figures alone.
Another excellent example of a famous NFT artist includes the lovable Hasbulla Magomedov. His rare characteristics and talents bring curiosity to himself and his NFT collections’. As a result, many people buy the digital assets to receive personalized content from him. And it is no wonder, Magomedov has a great sense of humor and is a character worth knowing.
Some worthy NFTs are also incredibly wholesome due to giving a chunk of their proceeds to needed charities. Look at Chillin’ Chameleons, for example. The proceeds from previous collections have assisted in installing a FloWater refill machine to prevent single-use plastics and beach clean-ups across America.
