Digital Artist, Kevin McCoy, minted the first NFT ‘Quantum’ on the Namecoin blockchain on May 3rd, 2014. Then Ethereum came into the industry around 2015 and by 2017 there were standards created for NFT tokens which made the launch of NFTs easier. Beyond the arts, CryptoKitties brought in the first use case of NFTs in games, and that sparked a new interest in nonfungibles. Decentraland, Axie, and other platforms were launched to utilize and spread the adoption of NFTs.
By 2021, the NFT market had recorded more than $17.6 billion in sales, showing a 200% increase from 2020. This surge was led by collectibles and gaming with the former taking more than $8.4 billion in sales. By 2022, NFTs were no longer 2D images minted and flipped for a few dollars. There was now a need to have 3D NFTs that can be used in VR-enabled games and metaverse. With the WilderWorld platform, the utility of NFTs will be unleashed more relative to the VR world and more freedom for creators and artists.
