Cool PFP Avatars Taking Over The Metaverse

Profile pictures (PFP) of NFT avatars of a unique character are frequently used as a cool PFP. These avatars are generated, or programmatically created from various traits. Holders of these NFTs are granted access to a special community in the Metaverse. Many offer perks for their holders, such as access to real-life events and gaming, merch, and more.

PFP projects are a status symbol in the NFT community for all these reasons. Many consider PFPs to be their digital identity. Who wouldn’t love to display their World of Women NFT or Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT for the world to see? Some of these NFTs have been sold for millions of dollars.

It can be difficult to choose the right NFT avatar in a market so crowded with them. We compiled a list of the top NFT avatar collections.

What Are Blue Chips?

Blue-chip is a term that originated from the stock market. Blue chips are solid investments and have a high probability of returning their profits and holding their value. If we translate this term to NFTs, it would mean that blue-chip NFTs are the ones most widely considered as safe investments.

They have the lowest risk of crashing, the highest chance of growing and the best chance of holding onto their value over time.
