Non-Fungible Tokens have experienced a continued boom ever since the start of the year. Their status as collectibles has made them very attractive to people.
In fact, many are willing to pay over-the-top high prices to acquire some. NFT coins, on the other hand, are the native tokens of NFT platforms that are used for various functions such as governance, and in some instances, minting as well. The rise in demand for NFTs has inevitably led to a rise in their parent ecosystems.
