NFT Art: Why are NFT Monkeys the most popular NFTs?
NFT Art has had quite a year. The crypto winter has done little to abate the love and the strength of the Community. Yet, out of all the successful Projects, it has been the primate-themed projects that have grabbed the hearts and imaginations of NFT Monkey enthusiasts and community alike. This admiration within the community has been helped immensely by the Bored Ape Yacht Club – the most popular and most valuable NFT Monkey collection in the world. But the movement has grown into so much more than just the Bored Apes. The Community has fallen madly in love with all things NFT Monkey, but why? Here, we look at 50 NFT Monkeys from our limited edition NFT Monkey Collection at Awk Monks.
NFT Monkey: The Price of Primates
NFT Monkeys have seen some of the largest NFT Art purchases in the NFT Art Marketplace. For example, the most expensive NFT Monkey ever sold was Bored Ape Yacht Club #8817 and was auctioned off at Sotheby’s and sold for $3.4 million. This extremely rare piece of NFT Art has gold fur, a woold turtleneck, and is holding a party horn in his mouth.
NFT Monkey or Bust!
The NFT Monkey craze has taken the PFP NFT world by storm. A PFP NFT is a Profile Picture NFT and these types of NFTs are used as profile pictures on their respective owner’s social media accounts. The PFPs are used as status symbols and are basically seen as the avatar of the owner. In many respects, the owner takes on the characteristics and style of his NFT Monkey. Or more likely than not, the owner chooses an NFT that has the characteristics and attributes that most resemble the owner. Indeed, the profile picture comes to represent the owner. Here, these 50 NFT Monkey PFP NFTs are perfect for profile pictures.
