NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have been ripped off all over the planet. The market exploded and reached $ 2 billion over the first four months of the year, or 10 times more than for the whole of 2020.

One or more assets can be associated with it (songs, gifs, memes, videos, photos, game cards, etc.), the authenticity of which it guarantees.

Activity slowed and prices also plunged in the wake of the global crypto crash in May. Given their high volatility and low liquidity, NFTs almost make very turbulent cryptos like bitcoin look like good investments.
