Celebrities, artists, crypto specialists, sports legends, and tech pioneers have all joined the rapidly expanding NFT bandwagon.
The influence of “whales,” who are large NFT collectors who have made huge purchases and recorded sizable profits in the previous year, has a significant impact on NFT values, and the cryptospace is no exception.
It is comparable to following Warren Buffet in the stock market to follow one or more of these NFT whales. Whale watching aids in understanding market trends and reveals undervalued assets with enormous potential for profit.
Even while they may not be avid NFT collectors, some of the celebrities listed below have sizable social media followings, which is likely to have a beneficial effect on the NFT collections they purchase.
Ethereum-style blockchains are open, transparent, and auditable. Any wallet can be inspected by anyone.
How can these wallets be followed? Start by following them on social media and making a watchlist on DappRadar.
Do your own research or DYOR.
Never purchase a token or NFT merely because a whale has it in his wallet!
