Top 10 Most Expensive NFTs

Cover Image for Top 10 Most Expensive NFTs

Welcome to the world of modern art that has emerged at the intersection of NFT technology and traditional visual art.

NFT (NFT, non-fungible token) – a non-interchangeable, unique token – is a type of cryptographic token, each instance of which is unique and cannot be exchanged or replaced with another.

The growth of the NFT ecosystem and its rapid ascent to the global cultural stage can partly be explained by the closure of our physical world during the COVID-19 pandemic. When galleries closed their doors to their communities, NFTs as a digital environment and the concept of the metaverse began to resonate with collectors worldwide, seeking a new cultural experience.

Recent news has fueled interest in the technology. Indonesian student Sultan Gustav Al-Ghazali sold his selfies as NFTs and became a millionaire at the age of 22. How much can such tokens be worth? Today, we will discuss the most expensive NFTs – the top 10 Most Expensive NFTs.
