At the start of last year, not many people were aware of Non-Fungible Tokens; however, at the close of the year, NFTs have grown in popularity so much that the Collins Dictionary has called NFT its word for the year 2021. Distinguished auction houses such as the Sotheby's and Christie's also joined the NFT sphere and conducted sales such as the digital collage of images by Beeple sold for $69.3 million at Christie's in March. According to analysts at the popular investment firm JPMorgan, the global market capitalization for the NFT space is estimated to be worth around $7 billion.
