Top 10 NFT influencers on Twitter & YouTube for 2021


This year, the digital art craze has exploded. In this mission, NFTs play a vital role and their influence can already be felt. The power of NFTs to open new kinds of creation and ownership is being recognized by industries such as branding, fashion, gaming, and music. It’s quite normal if you’re reading this post and have no idea what a non-fungible token is, and here’s a good source to learn more about them.

The traditional art world has been shattered by NFT visionaries, artists, and influencers. Here are examples of some exceedingly popular or growing purpose-driven NFT collections such as World Of Women, featuring a collection of diverse women, aiming to bring diversity, inclusivity, and promote women’s empowerment. There is also this cute Baby Walrus Gang that commits to raising awareness of ocean wildlife protection and fund on ocean conservation foundations.

The social media landscape in the NFT space

In terms of market outlook, NFTs are gaining massive traction in western markets. While they are still in the education phase in Asian markets, we can observe emerging efforts and awareness. For instance, Digital Art Fair and NFT galleries in Hong Kong, new Asian players entering the NFT space such as Singapore’s top virtual influencer, Rae with significant followers on Instagram and Weibo, and EVOS Esports – the number 1 esports organization in Southeast Asia.

In the social media landscape of the NFT world, most of the engagement occurs on the most crypto-friendly platforms – YouTube and Twitter. Influencer marketing plays a significant role in the decentralized NFT community and is dispersed across the globe, which Asian markets are also keeping up to date from global influencers.
