In this article, we discuss the 10 best NFT stocks to buy now. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to the 5 Best NFT Stocks to Buy Now.

Non-fungible token (NFT) sales jumped to more than $2.5 billion in the first six months of 2021, according to digital analytics firm DappRadar. The figure reveals the explosion in popularity for the digital tokens this year, evidenced by the fact that NFT sales in 2020, per DappRadar calculations, stood at just $94 million. Investors eager to explore this new market should keep an eye on famous NFT stocks like Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE: NET), and Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT), among others.

These firms have helped make NFTs more popular. Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) chief Jack Dorsey earlier this year sold his first tweet via NFT for nearly $3 million. Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE: NET) has helped improve trust in digital tokens by the marketing of the new technology to enterprise clients through the products it offers. Even celebrities like Katy Perry and Jay-Z have climbed aboard the NFT train recently. In June, Perry announced the launch of a fan NFT, just days after Jay-Z revealed plans to do the same on the anniversary of his first album release.

An NFT is essentially a unit of data stored on a digital ledger. This ledger certifies that a digital asset is unique. It is used in entertainment, gaming, and artistic contexts. According to OpenSea, an NFT marketplace, monthly sales volumes for NFTs reached a record high in June, totaling $160 million. The market for NFTs seems skewed in favor of buyers. NonFungible.com, a website that tracks NFT transactions, claims that since March, when the NFT craze was at a record high, monthly buyers of NFTs have totaled up to 20,000 per week, outnumbering sellers.

There is little doubt that NFTs are fast transforming the world of online entertainment and gaming. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey’s research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and July 2021 our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 186.1%, vs. 100.1% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 115 percentage points (see the details here). That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
