Digital collectibles on the blockchain have proven to be of great value. So much even that actual collectors are willing to spend a fair bit of money on them.
For most, blockchain collectibles remain a niche market.
The Power of Blockchain Collectibles
While it provides a different flair, it is not necessarily something that makes people money.
When it comes to NFTs, however, that situation may change fairly soon.
This week, a collector bought the “EXCHANGE THE WORLD 2019” NFT created by Binance.
The transaction was settled on the ethereum blockchain for a price of 29.8 ETH, or nearly $5,000 at today’s ether price.
It is certainly interesting to see how these digital collectibles are changing hands for larger amounts of money.
One can also understand the appeal of completely owning a digital art object, something that hasn’t been possible until blockchain technology gained traction.
It is worth noting that this asset created by Binance is not unique.
A second token was still available at the time of writing for a price of 50 ether.
Given the limited quantity, the price of these blockchain collectibles may increase if they would ever be resold.
The question is whether any of the buyers will be inclined to do so.
Blockchain collectibles serve no real purpose yet, but it is certainly an intriguing market for enthusiasts.
