NFT’s have seen a massive rise in popularity and 2022 is set to see the industry grow even more.

According to a recent study from Deloitte, NFT’s will be purchased by five million sporting fans in 2022, generating more than USD$2 billion (AUD$2.8 billion) in revenue.

Limited edition videos and sports avatars will hold the most value within the industry, according to the report.
