2021 is the year of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Right from January, crypto experts could sense the bullish sentiment around NFTs. The crypto market has now reached a state of frenzy. So much so that a single NFT platform recently made one billion dollars in NFT sales in just 7 days. This is partly due to the sudden popularity of Profile Picture (PFP) NFTs during this summer.
NFTs are putting stiff and steady competition against the legacy financial system. The famous business magazine, Fortune 500 decided to make this competition the theme of their August/September 2021 issue. The NFT artist, pplpleasr has designed the cover of the “Crypto vs. Wall Street” issue.
The Fortune 500 Magazine-NFTs Crossover
The Fortune magazine cover is a tribute to the rising popularity of crypto finance. Pplpleasr shows crypto project mascots partying with crypto influencers on a towering Alice-in-Wonderland-like portal. The portal stands tall over banks, Wall Street office buildings and the stock market bull. The magazine cover became so famous that Fortune decided to mint 256 limited edition NFTs of the cover. There were also 3 rarer NFTs for sale. Fortune has raised $1.3 million from their NFT auction.
The Crypto Influencers On Fortune’s Cover
You must be asking why the magazine cover has crypto influencers partying with the unicorn (Uniswap), the ghost (Aave), and fox (MetaMask). Are these influencers so critical and important for the crypto community? Yes, they are. It is these crypto influencers who have made the DeFi movement a success. They constantly interact with the crypto community on Twitter and other social media channels to communicate the latest news and updates.
There are 17 crypto influencers on the Fortune cover. Some of them are Santego Santos, Andrew Kang, Cobie, Ledger for Senate, Icebergy, etc. You can check out the full list of influencers and protocol mascots here.
