The 3 Best NFT Marketplaces in 2022

If you’re looking for an exciting investment opportunity, you may want to get in early on NFTs. The popularity of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) of Digital Art & Collectibles are skyrocketing. Whether you’re an artist or a collector, it is the perfect time to get your feet wet. 

Similar to how Bitcoin is marketed as a digital form of cash, NFTs are marketed as a digital form of art. A benefit of investing in NFTs is that they cannot be manipulated or faked, and you can exchange them for cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin on specialized exchanges.

But how to choose an NFT marketplace for buying NFTs?  Many companies are launching marketplaces for non-fungible tokens.
