The United Nations will adopt the NFT on International Women’s Day
The beginning of the year was busy for the NFT market. While negative news has been a feature, catching the attention of governments around the world, there has also been greater adoption of digital assets that pushed NFT trading volumes to record highs in January.
The NFT market continues to grow
The arts and entertainment and sports sectors have been particularly active in the NFT market. With rare collectible NFTs of music legends and iconic movies hitting the market. As the demand for digital assets increases, it is likely that the general public will become more interested in them. This will then likely lead to increased trading activity as more buyers enter the market.
This week, Sotheby’s announced a CryptoPunk auction scheduled for the 23rd February. Auction houses have been a bridge between the general public and the digital world for some time. This is likely to continue to evolve as more artists embrace NFTs.
So it’s no surprise that governments and agencies are looking for ways to positively embrace NFTs.
