After having had a sensational debut within the crypto-initiated community, NFTs are increasingly occupying the more mainstream media space. Whether it is to monopolize part of the buzz and surf the wave that some might call “fashion”, or to provide a real user experience, the initiatives are legion. Every day, every week now has its share of NFT news. Everyone is doing it, starting with major American groups.

The recent transition from “Facebook” to “Meta” is a perfect example. All major international groups want their place in the metaverse. In addition to companies specializing in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, there are also “pioneers” of a new kind. The latest entrants as McDonald’s, Victoria’s Secret Where Ralph Lauren are not particularly innovative at the technical level, but it is large international groups (followed by a large fan base) that now cover these subjects.

Although the sharpest crypto minds may judge that these companies are simply taking advantage of a “hype”, of a new product to showcase, they still bring a significant spotlight on the NFT scene. What better than one of the most followed competitions in the United States to continue to promote it?
