NFT Mania Continues

Non-Fungible Tokens aka NFTs are nothing new and have been in use for almost three years now, with their primary use being in-game rewards in video games and fank tokens for a major sports league. However, 2021 has turned NFTs into the most trendy phenomenon for this bull season as many digital artists, pop singers, social media stars, and pro-athletes launch and auction limited edition digital memorabilia for fans that have racked in millions of dollars.

Floyd Mayweather being someone who is also popularly known as Mr. Munny has been involved with crypto space for quite some time and first made headlines for promoting a dubious Initial Coin Offering back in 2017. The boxing icon later settled with the SEC by paying a hefty fine.
