Death of the NFT

There is some bad news for NFT fans. The digital collectibles are pretty much worthless now.

Using data from NFT Scan, the crypto platform dappGambl found that 95% of the 73,257 non-fungible token collections (e.g., Bored Ape Yacht Club) it analyzed are worth 0 ether. In other words, if NFTs were physical objects, it’d be time to put them on the same garage shelf where your Beanie Babies went to die. The report estimates that 23 million people are now the owners of worthless digital files. The crash is mainly for one reason: There just isn’t enough demand to keep up with supply.
