The Highest Selling NFTs of 2022
As the world progresses, the traditional practices of various fields are now being left behind. One such field is asset accumulation. There is a wide range of assets one can invest in. However, that range has remained constant for several years until the introduction of NFTs.
NFTs are digital art that represents digital assets. An upside of NFTs is that they are rapidly increasing in value. Although NTFs were first introduced in 2012, it was only recently that their popularity soared worldwide. As a result, their values skyrocketed, making them the highest grossing digital assets. Let us look at the top NFTs of 2022 that were sold for unimaginable amounts.
