We have bored apes, pudgy penguins, cool cats and even weird whales. No, we're not talking about some imaginary animal supermarket. These are some of the hottest NFT (non-fungible token) projects of the past few years. For the uninitiated, NFTs are essentially limited edition digital collectibles which can be traded online. Think of them as an upgraded version of the baseball cards you used to collect when you were a kid.
The NFT market went into overdrive in 2021. Celebrities and pop stars around the world spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase NFTs to display as their social media avatars. Many have questioned the validity of these digital art pieces as valuable collectibles. However, art as we all know it is... subjective.
