Following Snoop Dogg’s reveal that he is an NFT whale with over $17 million in collectibles, it seems that another massive wave of interest is going to enter the sector. Snoop Dogg is the latest in a long line of celebrities who have collected NFTs, including NBA player Stephen Curry, YouTube sensation Jake Paul, and even TV presenter Steve Harvey. Any industry that contains both Snoop Dogg and Steve Harvey is certain to be popular.
NFTs vary from other cryptocurrencies in that they are nearly always kept in the holder’s own cryptocurrency wallet. Because there are limited options for investors to hold NFTs on centralized exchanges, users must get acquainted with crypto wallets in order to participate in NFT markets. In reality, the NFT market is presently seeing the most widespread use of crypto functions.
As a result, the market for NFTs is ripe for innovation. There is already a sizable market of individuals with the technical expertise to take advantage of new NFT capabilities, enabling them to extract even more value from their investments. This has become somewhat of a trend in the NFT industry since the previous boom. NFT collections are currently being created that may carry additional sources of revenue for its holders or minters, rather than just representing a JPEG or GIF. NFT collections that generate funds for initiatives, involve prize drawings, or provide holders with passive income.
The advantages are obvious. For starters, it enables investors to extract value from their assets in ways they haven’t been able to previously. A passive income, for example, is a fantastic method to make money without having to sell an asset. As a result, a community has formed around the NFT collection. There is an activity or a medium that enables people to interact with one other, whether the NFTs finance a project or provide holders access to rewards. Finally, and most crucially for any investor, all of this will increase the value of their NFTs.
Let’s take a look at a few different NFT collections and the techniques they’ve created to generate value for their investors to see how they might extract greater profits for their investors.
A total of 14,159 NFTs make up the Lucky Maneki, collection. Manekis are patterned by Japanese fortunate kitties and are created programmatically from a mixture of hundreds of goodies. Each Maneki, which is stored on the Ethereum Network, has a specific degree of rarity, which will, of course, define its worth in the eyes of investors.
Lucky Manekis are similar to many NFT collections in this regard. What makes this collection unique is that when you purchase a Lucky Maneki NFT, you become a part-owner of the project. The community of holders owns and operates this project completely! You own the artwork IP and may use it right now in the forthcoming Lucky Maneki Merchandise Store if you own a Lucky Maneki or the new Maneki Gang collection.
The artwork in the Lucky Maneki collection also includes secret meanings that may be found. Collectors may earn Rare or Legendary Lucky Maneki NFTs by using the artwork in ongoing challenges. These challenges incentivize collectors while also bringing the community together in a fun manner. The Lucky Maneki Community intends to release a voxel collection for usage in the Metaverse as the next generation of NFTs. This will allow community members to engage in a Lucky Maneki Metaverse game in the Sandbox’s constantly growing Sandbox.
Synesis One is one of the most ambitious approaches to extracting value from NFTs. This initiative uses crowdsourcing to aid in the development of artificial intelligence. The site, which is accessible to everyone, offers play-to-earn MMO games that are used to create datasets and reward users.
Each of the top 10,000 words (per language) is made into a unique generative art and keyword-embedded NFT. Anyone who owns the NFT of a term will be rewarded if that word is accessed by the consumers of the AI. In addition, users will be rewarded for their participation in the game, for which they must stake their NFT to participate.
Small and medium-sized companies may buy data and utilize it to build AI tools (i.e. chatbots) for their customer base. NFT holders are rewarded every time their keyword is accessed by the AI.
Synesis One converts crowdsourced information into financial assets, allowing everyone to benefit from the underlying value. It offers an alternative to Google and Facebook, which profit handsomely from the collection of other people’s personal data. Synesis One, on the other hand, may disseminate this value to its community.
Synesis One isn’t the only initiative using NFTs to make data gathering more accessible. The HLTH.network platform offers a collection of technologies that are poised to transform the global healthcare sector. One of these tools is an NFT marketplace, where users may create NFTs using their own genetic data.
Users take ownership of their genetic data and ensure that they are the ones who benefit from it by selling these NFTs on the open market. More significantly, releasing genetic information enables research organizations to utilize it to create medications in an anonymous manner. It helps the medical community identify, diagnose, effectively treat, and potentially prevent illness by supporting scientific study of the genome. Proceeds from the sale can also be used to support charities and other research initiatives.
The NFT marketplace is only one piece of a much larger ecosystem aimed at changing the healthcare sector, and any NFTs created on it will function with the rest of the network. The money raised from the sale will be utilized to expand the network, allowing everyone to profit from a global healthcare market.
These are just a few of the innovative ways that NFT collections are attracting new investors to the sector. Although the full potential of NFTs is still a long way off, we are seeing an increasing number of methods for investors to extract value from their NFT holdings.
