    What to expect from NFTs in 2023

    Many technology companies are innovating at a rapid pace, including Web2 founders and studios building long-time Web2 games, even migrating Web2 IPs to Web3. These companies are using NFT as a technology to enhance in-game experiences.

    The intersection of NFT and AI, such as creating games and arts, designing games, using AI-based NPCs, and creating multimedia content masters, remains another intriguing point. The evolution of wallets and marketplaces to better serve users is also notable.

    Also, there is a strong buzz surrounding general advancements in layer-2 chains, especially in the zero-knowledge (ZK) rollup space. ZK-rollup is expected to make accessing and using NFT 10 times to 100 times easier.
