During the last few years, NFTs have caught massive fame. NFTs like “ The Merge” have sold for close to $ 91 million, which is astounding. There are many famous NFTs currently trading in the market, and anyone with an interest in knowing more about Virtual Digital Assets will find them fascinating.

This article will help you figure out which NFTs are currently the talk of the town!

What Are NFTs?

NFTs are digital assets that are non-fungible meaning there is only one original of an NFT.

NFT transactions are noted on Blockchains. Since entries on most blockchains are immutable, the ownership is recorded forever, ensuring authenticity.

This article lists the NFTs which are traded on Open Sea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace. Their volumes are denominated in ETH, and the NFTs are powered by the Ethereum Blockchain.

6. Decentraland

Decentraland is a metaverse platform that enables you to buy and sell real estate. This real estate is known as LAND and can be purchased with MANA, the token for Decentraland.

LAND is segmented into Parcels and owning a Parcel gives you full control over its environment. Parcels which are communities of shared themes can be grouped into districts.

The total traded volume of Decentraland is 243,000 ETH, and the minimum floor price per NFT is 2.67 ETH.

5. Azuki

Azuki is an NFT collection that bridges the gap between the real and virtual worlds. The collection has a total of 10,000 avatars.

If you own an Azuki, you have access to the Garden, which is an exclusive membership area. With this membership, you get access to a plethora of exclusive digital assets.

Azuki is developed by Chiru labs, a startup based out of Los Angeles. The lead founder goes by the name Zagabond, a Defi builder who claims to have worked in big tech companies such as Google.

The traded volume of Azuki is 251,000 ETH with a floor price of 11.9 ETH.

4. Otherdeed for Otherside

An upcoming gamified metaverse called the Otherside incorporates role-playing game features with web3-compatible virtual worlds. It intends to develop a multiplayer virtual world that you control where your NFTs can become playable characters.

The virtual real estate platform within Otherside is called Otherdeed. It gives you the ability to construct, gather materials, and produce original experiences in Otherside. Of the 200,000 Otherdeeds, only 100,000 will be made available for purchase. Holders of prior Otherdeeds, and those who assist in realising the Otherside vision will receive the remainder as rewards.

The compatibility of Otherside with other NFTs you might own is one of its distinctive selling points. When the game releases, all owners of Bored Ape, Mutant Ape, and CryptoPunk will receive in-game characters. This allows you to use your NFTs on a different platform.

The total volume of Otherdeeds is 304,000 ETH with a floor price of 2.43 ETH.

Each of these causes different levels of mutations from the original NFT. Vials can also be purchased separately on NFT exchanges, and there are no restrictions on their use.
