The NFT market will have a $231 billion (roughly Rs. 18,41,300 crore) behemoth by 2030, and it is too big a business to be ignored, according to Tarusha Mittal, the CEO of UniFarm and co-founder. UniFarm is a multi-token reward staking program.
NFTs have proved to be a powerful business tool for many large businesses.
A total of $260 million (roughly Rs. 2,074 crore) has been combined with high-end luxury brands including Nike, Gucci, Dolce, and Gabbana with the sales of their NFT items.
