Investors continue to show a growing interest in NFT as companies with possible connections to the crypto see major movement for shares of their stocks.
If you are not familiar with non-fungible tokens (NFTs), they are a form of cryptocurrency with unique identifiers. This allows them to be used for trading specific pieces of art online. Those tokens can represent both physical and digital art.
Most NFTs make use of the Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD) platform, but others are cropping up using Cardano (CCC:ADA-USD) and Polkadot (CCC:DOT1-USD) instead.

With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
