Top 10 Most Expensive NFTs

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) have become extremely popular this year and some NFTs are sold for millions of dollars. As per Wikipedia “A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files.” 

NFTs are digital collectibles that are one-of-a-kind, and you can't exchange them for another token like you can with other cryptos. If you are new to NFTs and want to learn more about NFTs, here is a detailed article to learn everything about NFTs: What is NFT. Learn Everything About NFTs Here,
