Over the past few months, several creators and owners of Nifties (NFTs) have managed to pocket significant sums of money. In March, for example, artist Beeple made more than $ 60 million from the sale of one of his digital works.
As a reminder, the Cryptopunks are images each representing a unique character with a punk look. Collectors, investors and NFT enthusiasts can find them on the Ethereum blockchain. There are more than 10,000 of them.
Earlier this year, an event relating to these NFTs caused a buzz on the web. Sure enough, someone bought a CryptoPunk for 605 ETH ($ 750,000). Another interesting fact about these digital works of art: On July 29, the individual who owned CryptoPunk 3860 accidentally sold it for less than $ 0.01. An opportunist of course took advantage. With the CryptoPunk in their possession, the buyer managed to resell it for 52 ETH ($ 136,000). This person thus won nearly $ 80,000. Indeed, the former owner of CryptoPunk 3860 acquired it for $ 69,360.
The Stoner cats
Presented by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, the Stoner Cats are a series of animated short films. In order to access it, all interested parties need to do is purchase a right to access the episodes. These can then be collected, sold or traded by their owner.

Note that the sale of these Stoner Cats also caused a huge buzz. Due to the frenzy of buyers, the Ethereum network even found itself saturated.

For those who don’t know it yet, Sorare is an online soccer game. It began in 2019. Since its existence, it has attracted not only football enthusiasts, but also many investors.
Sorare’s concept is a bit like that of the famous Panini albums. Players need to create a virtual soccer team and make it perform as well as possible. To do this, they need to buy or trade cards representing players who really exist.
In Sorare, in order to have a strong team, you need to have the best players (i.e. the best cards). Indeed, the performance of teams depends on that of players in real life. In the game, the goal is to earn as many points as possible and use them to buy good cards for your team.
Nowadays, a lot of players are selling Sorare cards in the form of NFTs. And surprising as it may sound; buyers are willing to shell out a fortune to acquire them. In November 2020, a buyer paid 116 ETH ($ 65,600) for a single Kylian Mbappé card. For a single Cristiano Ronaldo card, a person has already paid 150 ETH, or more than $ 289,000.
It should be noted that in Sorare, there are 3 types of cards. There are rare cards (100 copies), super rare cards (10 copies) and unique cards (one copy). The rarer a card, the more likely it is to cost.
If you are ready to live in a digital world, now you have the opportunity and the tools to live that dream, and maybe even make a profit doing it! NFT ZED RUN is a blockchain-based game that uses NFTs to represent a horse. The turf in the digital age becomes real thanks to the blockchain!
The NFT Golden Goals
Remember that Golden Goals is an NFT Marketplace. Based on the Tezos blockchain, it is exclusively dedicated to football. Those responsible for this platform explained that their goal was to democratize the use of NFTs. They therefore created Golden Goals in order to allow clubs, players, football fans, artists and brands to create, sell and buy Nifties on the theme of the round ball.
To date, several famous clubs offer NFTs on Golden Goals. Among them is FC Nantes, which recently decided to sell their away shirt there as a Non Fungible Token.
On Golden Goals, buyers can now acquire or sell various virtual items at auction, sometimes at a premium.
The Nifties of Candy and the MLB
You should know that nowadays, more and more sports have decided to bet on the Nifties. Even America’s Major League Baseball (MLB) has started riding this trend. Currently, the latter offers fans the opportunity to collect unique digital baseball themed items. To do this, she teamed up with Candy Digital.
The first NFT that MLB launched in partnership with Candy Digital was the NFT Gehrig “Luckiest Man”. It was a unique piece of history commemorating the speech of “the luckiest man”, namely Lou Gehrig. This speech was given by the latter on July 4, 1939 to announce his official retirement because of his disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS).
For the record, during his career, Lou Gehrig was twice voted best player in the major leagues. He has also won the World Series with the Yankees six times. All of these exploits have earned him a place in the Baseball Hall of Fame. One can imagine, therefore, the value that the NFT dedicated to it was able to achieve.
Voxies: their pixels are worth gold!
Voxies is an NFT project on the Ethereum blockchain. The Voxies are little pixel art characters that are sure to appeal to fans of retro gaming. Cute collectible characters that are made unique with NFT technology.
There are exactly 10,000 Voxies, this number cannot change and is built into the smart contract which is locked on the Ethereum blockchain. Each Voxie is randomly generated and locked to a certain token number in the blockchain. Their attributes are made up of a number of different criteria and this mix of different attributes makes each Voxie totally unique. Voxies can share attributes with other Voxies, but two unique Voxies will never have the same combination.
Here’s how it works if you want to become the lucky owner of a voxie:
- Step 1: Buy Voxie NFTs from the secondary market and become the proud owner of your adorable Voxies.
- Step 2: Collect and assemble your Voxies, combining classes and races to create your perfect group of Voxies.
- Step 3: Take your Voxies to Voxie Tactics to compete against other Voxies for rewards.
But of course you can also keep it and do nothing until it appreciates in value and sells it back for a gain!
