NFTs Are Mainstream - CRYPTO FRIDAY

Hey DEFI TIMES community,

The chart says it all. NFTs are already mainstream. As someone, who has been in the crypto space for about five years, I have to admit that I didn't see it coming that fast.

The weekly NFT transaction volume last week almost exceeded $200 million - unbelievable!

More and more celebrities join the NFT space - Gary V, Lindsay Lohan, Mezut Özil, Logan Paul, and Grimes are just a few examples.

NFTs got into the mainstream so quickly that even I completely missed out on them, and I pretty much spend all my time researching new crypto opportunities!

I am sure most of you feel the same way. At this point, there is no denying that NFTs are the future; however, is it still a good idea to invest your precious time and money into it right now?

Well, probably - if you are willing to put the work in. There are two types of people who will make loads of money in this NFT hype: Collectors and artists.

If you have always produced fantastic art, or maybe you are incredibly talented in collecting stuff in the real world, NFTs might be for you!

On the other hand, if you have neither done either of these, you should probably stay away! There's one universal rule in investing: Only invest in the things you understand!

If you are someone like me, who has absolutely no sense for collectibles or art - don't FOMO in right now!

Stay calm and observe the mania from the sidelines. 

You don't have to participate in every crypto hype cycle!
