Within a few months of the start of 2022, the global economy was rocked to its foundations. However, digital markets and virtual real estate have proven to be a boon to both businesses and consumers alike. The Metaverse is another name for this concept. As cryptocurrencies and NFTs (non-fungible tokens) rise in prominence, the virtual marketplaces, digital assets, and the way we interact with others this decade will be vastly different from how they were in the early 2010s.

A non-fungible token can represent any kind of asset, including digital ones, and provide a complete history and proof of ownership. Unique digital assets and items can be created with this functionality and bought or sold by anybody on an open market. They are quickly emerging as the most visible advocates for change.

Many platforms like the Hate Race game are supporting NFTs. In this article, we will discuss five key NFT trends in 2022 as they continue their rapid growth.

Disrupting The Art World

After seeing NFTs’ dramatic rise in the art world, there has been a debate regarding the value of art, how it is owned, and what we can expect in 2022 and beyond. As an NFT, Beeple’s Every Day: The First 5,000 Days set a record for the highest price ever paid for digital artwork. Using blockchain technology, NFTs allow us to verify the origin and ownership of digital data for the first time in history.

It appears that fractional NFTs of real-world artwork by well-known artists will be in demand in 2022, and fractional NFTs allow investment in high-value crypto assets for a fraction of the price.

Many global artists are holding NFT auctions and even making them a viable source of income. This $50 billion a year industry/opportunity is attracting the attention of more and more art lovers and investors.

Influence on the Gaming Industry

In the year 2021, gaming was the second most important NFT application. Through blockchain-based play-to-win games, NFTs have ushered in a new age in gaming since they represent the first time that players own their assets, which they may sell. NFTs trade for profit.

Axie Infinity was one of the most popular games in 2021, thanks to its use of NFTs and cryptocurrency. The daily trading volume on Axie’s NFT market hit $1 billion, and there were over one million daily active players. As a result of Axie’s character tokenization, to begin playing, players must acquire a minimum of three NFTs from her.



Boosting Fundraising Efforts to a New Level

There’s always room for charity when there’s a lot of money, major investors, or valuable objects at stake. Fundraising has become an inevitable outcome of NFTs as the world embraces the benefits of tokenization.

Every time a transaction is made using an NFT, a portion of the money is automatically donated to a good cause. NFTs and smart contract algorithms are safeguarded by blockchain technology since it creates a publicly traceable and transparent database. In addition, cryptocurrency-based charitable payments involve lower transaction fees and near-instant returns as well as.

Impact on Social Communities

Instagram and Twitter profile images that feature a monkey, giraffe, or some other imaginative animal interpretation have recently risen in popularity. It’s also possible that this is due to the widespread adoption of NFTs.

NFTs for profile images were introduced by Twitter in January 2022, and Meta joined the bandwagon shortly thereafter. Social media businesses are developing a label to distinguish between submitted photographs and validated NFTs in a user’s cryptocurrency wallet to overcome the ‘right click and save’ dilemma.

This has also led to exclusive Metaverse communities and social clubs, all of which have one thing in common: they all own the same NFT from the same artist. With more than ten thousand virtual world objects, the Shiboshis Social Club is an exclusive Metaverse club for Shiboshi NFT owners. Members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), for example, receive social benefits as a result of their NFT collection. Future social activities will be powered by NFTs.

Influencing Creative Industries

Many established sectors will soon be significantly disrupted by blockchain as a result of the key NFT characteristic of tokenization of tangible assets.

NFTs are expected to have a significant impact on the music and film industries. Fans of a show will be able to post their songs on outlets both inside and outside of the Metaverse. Early releases and additional tracks are just a few of the benefits that blockchain-based NFTs will bring to consumers.

Streaming, on the other hand, has changed the dissemination of content in both entertainment and music. To trade, promote, and finance film and television ventures, NFTs have opened up a whole new pathway.



Conclusion

NFTs are only now beginning to transform digital asset ownership and exchange, setting the groundwork for digital communities, tradeable in-game assets, and the Metaverse economy. The future of NFTs is bright, and we will see more of them in every industry.
