The mainstream appearance of NFTs as art in 2021 has opened up many possibilities for the metaverse and collective virtual shared spaces. Based on blockchain technology, artists can utilize NFTs as proof of ownership over digital creations, where NFT artworks receive inherent certifications of rarity and authenticity. Furthermore, in order of unprecedented transparency, NFTs enable creators to receive patronage without intermediaries, whereas collectors can build their digital personas and create cultural narratives. Thus, NFTs enable creators and collectors to come together in the metaverse and extend the latitude for art appreciation in a digital world of immense possibilities.
