Miley Cyrus, an American singer-songwriter, is the newest celebrity to extend her brand into the virtual stratosphere, having filed two metaverse and non-fungible token-related trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Juniper Research expects that there will be 40 million NFT transactions during the next five years. Metaverse-related use cases will play a significant role in the broad adoption of digital products, the study shows.
During the subsequent five years, these particular NFTs will expand at a rapid rate. By 2027, there will be nearly 10 million NFT-based transactions connected to the metaverse, up from 600,000 this year.
NFTs are predominantly art-related. It is common knowledge that the NFT community is utterly obsessed with music and other related stuff.
This is further supported by the findings of a recent research conducted by Ripple examining the degree of interest in NFTs across major financial organizations.
