The meme-inspired NFTs are capitalizing on the rising popularity of crypto art. The popularity is based on the ability to securely value, purchase, and exchange digital art using a digital ledger.

Furthermore, some of the subjects in the meme are also leveraging on NFTs because creators can prove ownership of their works leveraging digital signs backed by blockchain technology. This gives NFT’s the ability to eliminate illegal duplication of digital works.

Additionally, the rise of NFT is reflected in the trading volume of various marketplaces. Research by cryptocurrency trading simulator Crypto Parrot indicates that the all-time trading volume of the ten leading NFT marketplaces has hit $1.63 billion as of May 4, 2021.
