This does not mean that NFTs cannot sell at high prices. For example, in addition to his $91.8 million price tag for “The Merge,” Beeple’s “Everydays: The First 5000 Days” fetched his $69.5 million at auction.

Of course, NFTs don’t have to be art. There are also sports NFTs that include digital variations of trading cards and highlight reels.

The MLB Champions blockchain-based baseball game sold for $21.3 million, and a card signed by World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion Jermall Charlo sold for $19.1 million.

As the world becomes more and more digital, NFTs can even represent deeds to physical property, user medical records, proof of ownership, or proof of attendance. These things may not be easily transferable from one owner to another, but each may occupy its own space on the blockchain.
Of course, buying NFTs is different than buying stocks or putting cash into a high-interest savings account.
As 2022 has shown, there is no guarantee that NFT prices will go up. This means that when an investor buys an NFT, he or she needs to take the time to understand what they are buying and what the value of his NFT will be.
