CHENNAI: With Twitter increasingly functioning as a platform for users to discuss their interests, the platform says Non-Fungible Tokens aka NFTs have emerged as the latest hot topic.
“Last year, 375 million tweets were sent out on NFTs globally and in India alone, the NFT conversation has increased by 3000% between January 2021 – January 2022,” Twitter said. Interestingly, 15% of the NFT conversation in India comes from women, it added.
Globally, 26% women believe that NFTs can be a lucrative investment, and 25% see it as an opportunity for exclusivity and to support independent artists. 24% of women think NFTs are a good way for brands to share new and exclusive content.
Several Indian women NFT artists are taking the lead in bringing more fellow women into this growing conversation. Among them is Akanksha Badaya (@art_lover_09), a certified graphic designer from Jaipur, who has been working on a mix of digital and traditional art.
She believes that Web 3 is the future and that, through NFTs, her art can reach a wider audience. “My NFT journey started when I came across people sharing their NFTs on Twitter. That got me intrigued to know more about the space and research about it. I attended a few Twitter Spaces that helped me gain knowledge about the background of NFTs,” she said.
Some NFT artists, including Badaya, will be helping to launch Twitter’s first ever global female-led NFT Community – Women in NFTs.
