2021’s NFT Boom Pushes Collectors Toward Rare and Older Collections – Blockchain Bitcoin News

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, have grown to be a billion-dollar industry in 2021. There’s been a number of NFT marketplaces and collections that have seen a massive number of sales and individual digital collectibles have sold for millions. There has been a lot of demand for NFT cards such as Spells Of Genesis, Curio, Bitcorn and Rare Pepe trading cards.

The NFT hype has exploded and old collections of non-fungible tokens (NFT) are now in demand. NFTs are known to have existed since 2014, when an NFT was created called OLGA.

The births of Spells Of Genesis (SoG), Terra nullius V2, Etheria v1.1 and Etheria v1.2 were all made possible by OLGA’s creation. SoG cards have been selling for much more since the hype surrounding the 2021 NFT.

Etheria NFTs are still available for purchase via the Etheria trading platform. A minimum bid of 0.1 ETH is required or 385 units. Sarutobi Island NFTs were created in 2016 and are currently at a low floor price, around 0.03 ETH. This is $115.

Opensea’s floor price at 0.199 ETH (or $1,151) for My Curio cards has been set by the 2017 edition. Curio Cards are also being offered for auction at prices between 1-2 ETH. It is the same for older 2017, NFT collections, and Cryptopunks from that year.

The Cryptopunks floor price for a single digital collectible is not cheap as dappradar.com stats show it’s $235.43K today, however, the average price is around $119.75K per punk. Cryptopunks 2017 has had $2.32 trillion in total sales.

Other popular 2017 series NFT collections include Diecast Club Collection, My Blockchain Corner, Digital Zones, Mooncatrescue, Dada Creeps & Weirdos, Crypto Kitties, Weicards, and Ether Rocks. NFT investors continue to demand these collections for their higher value and newer demands.

Crypto Kitties were so popular during the first week of December 2017, the project congested the Ethereum blockchain and the project’s NFTs still have demand from collectors. The NFT ecosystem that we now know is a significant improvement on the one we had in 2018 despite all of the attention it received and the launch of a multitude of NFT collections, despite this.

High-dollar NFTs also go for 2018 collections, including Ethertulips and Crypto Fighters. The Axie Infinity tokens are non-fungible and were also launched in 2018. A lot more people will be interested in the Axie NFTs in 2021.

Old school projects such as Pixelcons, Crypto Graphics, Realms of Ether, Cryptocats, and many other collections are seeing sales they may not have seen if it wasn’t for the exponential growth of the NFT industry. Because of their rareness and age, many people are now looking for old NFTs from collections that were minted decades ago.
