NFTs have since evolved far beyond these early experiments. Millions of dollars are being commissioned to artists through platforms like SupeRare and OpenSea. More recently we’ve been seeing the emergence of next-generation NFTs and platforms, expanding into digital art and land purchasing. We're beginning to see NFTs intersect with trends in DeFi (like Aavegotchi, MEME, and WHALE), and also serve as the bedrock for next-generation gaming platforms and the emerging metaverse. Decentraland and Cryptovoxels are great examples that serve flashing glimmers of worlds earlier only visualized in science fiction films like Ready Player One.
