When NFTs join sports
Ever since the CryptoPunks introduced pixel art to NFTs, all sorts of image formats and art styles, spanning anime, mechanics, and minimalism, have entered the NFT market. This, coupled with the emergence of celebrity NFT holders in the past year, has caused NFT prices to skyrocket. Later, big companies from various industries soon followed suit and also began to pursue NFT innovations, focusing on works of art and collectibles.
