Finder's NFT predictions report
The market cap of the NFT universe is predicted to double from US$7 billion in November 2021 to US$14 billion in July 2022 and hit US$26 billion by the end of the year, according to Finder's panel of over 30 fintech specialists. Finder's panel then predicts the NFT universe market cap will reach US$146 billion by the end of 2025.
Thomson Reuters futurist, Joseph Raczynski, gave an end of year market cap prediction of US$30 billion and thinks the NFT industry is an important space to watch.
"NFTs are in an explosive exponential growth phase. This trumps what I saw in 2017 with the ICO. NFTs go well beyond art to community of people, or clubs, ownership of companies, and they will own a football club some day soon. This is the digital tokenisation of assets - represented by a token. This is a significantly important space to watch grow," he said.
Finder's 2021 NFT Adoption Report revealed that more than 4% of Australian Internet users owned an NFT last year and on average the panel expects NFT adoption to hit 11.7% by the end of 2022.
However while the NFT industry is forecast to grow significantly, not everyone thinks it's a good thing for the cryptocurrency category. While half the panel says NFTs are enhancing the credibility of the cryptocurrency category, just under a quarter think NFTs are actually undermining credibility.
Galia Digital's emerging technology consultation, Kate Baucherel put it this way:
"The NFT market has to get through a winnowing of poor quality content and lose the get rich quick/scam label, as crypto had to after the ICO rush. It will clean up and expand."
CoinFlip founder, Daniel Polotsky, who thinks NFT adoption will hit 5% this year, says NFTs are enhancing the cryptocurrency sector's credibility.
"NFTs are giving artists and players the ability to issue their work directly to their fans on the blockchain--no shipping needed! Collectors love NFTs, because their existence is confirmed on the blockchain and verified by miners; they can verify the entire history of each piece, and know it isn't fraudulent. Counterfeiters ruin the fun and value of collecting art/memorabilia, and the blockchain has stepped in to fix this annoying issue once and for all. NFTs give the cryptocurrency industry a lot of credibility, because unlike gold 2.0 or decentralised finance, they are way more relevant to the average person; if something as universal as art can be put on a blockchain, then the possibilities are truly endless", he said.
