NFT ranked 1 in the Power 100 art world
NFT was ranked first in the annual Power 100 ranking of art influencers. The list is compiled by the international contemporary art magazine ArtReview.
For the first time, a non-human topped the list.
The first place in Power 100 in 2021 was taken by ERC-721 (the standard of tokens from the Ethereum smart contract network).
The magazine noted that NFT allowed artists to bypass traditional “controllers” of the market.
ArtReview Editor Jay Jay Charlesworth commented, “The idea of digital assets and virtual collectibles has become an enticing prospect for artists creating art online. And it won’t go away anytime soon. “
