Nifty Gateway is owned by the Gemini crypto exchange and it is one of the bigger players in the NFT market. millions of dollars worth of NFT are when under the hammer on this platform in 2021 alone which some pieces selling for over $373,000 last week. As such, NFTs are not limited to art as they are smart contacts that contain identifiable information about one service, product, or just anything that can be verifiable.
