NFTs are selling at all-time high values in 2021, turning many collectors into millionaires. Therefore, now is the time to keep an eye on the most promising NFT collections for 2022 so that you too can improve your financial performance.
CryptoPunks is one of the earliest non-fungible token projects developed on the Ethereum blockchain. The project consists of 10,000 algorithmically generated 24×24 pixel portraits featuring random attributes such as wearing a hat or smoking a pipe.
One of the biggest drivers of demand for CryptoPunks is that they’re one of the oldest NFT projects around as well as the first set of randomly generated profile pictures to click with the crypto community. They’ve inspired a rising tide of profile picture NFT sets, from Bored Ape Yacht Club to Pudgy Penguins and plenty more, each of which only reinforces the influence and legacy of the source project. CryptoPunks have some high-profile owners, such as rapper Jay-Z and influencer and investor Gary Vaynerchuk.

Bored Ape Yacht Club
Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) is a collection of 10,000 NFT Apes, each with 100% unique traits. Some traits are rarer than others meaning that collectors place more value on them. By purchasing an Ape, you also get exclusive access to future collections and other perks as a member of BAYC.
Bored Ape owners can participate in exclusive clubs and areas of the BAYC. This includes first access to new NFTs, NFT upgrades, and other perks. Both the Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) and Bored Ape Kennel Club allowed BAYC members to take part for free. With both of these collections selling for high prices, the benefits of joining the BAYC are easy to see.
Many celebrities such as Eminem, Stephen Curry, Post Malone, etc. have joined Apes Community. It has become more prominent than ever.

Best-selling author, serial entrepreneur, and motivational speaker Gary Vaynerchuk is leading the pack in style with his new NFT project called VeeFriends, which is arguably the most innovative project I have seen so far.
On 20th April 2021, Gary Vaynerchuk subtly announced the launch of his ambitious NFT project called VeeFriends on 05/05. When everyone is trying to make big bucks through NFT sales, Gary made his vision clear for the next 40 years. This is unlike any other NFT project that sells collectible digital art and then allows you to trade them on NFT marketplaces. The main ambition of VeeFriends is to create meaningful intellectual property and create an extraordinary community. Gary believes VeeFriends will be the blueprint for how all NFT projects should be done.

Alex Becker and Elliotrades, crypto YouTubers, debuted the Neo Tokyo Identities NFT project in October 2021 with a governed minting strategy. Minting Neo Tokyo NFTs needed first passing a test to be added to a whitelist, as well as NFTs appearing as codes that transform into avatars once uploaded.
The Neo Tokyo NFT project aims to create a community that will advantage its members in the long run by providing them with opportunities to earn additional income and other benefits. One of its projects is a Neo Tokyo metaverse game in which NFT avatars serve as characters. Furthermore, the project will invest in crypto games and provide its members with instant access to them.
The Neo Tokyo NFT Collection has been divided into Neo Tokyo Identities, Neo Tokyo Vault Cards, Neo Tokyo Item Caches, and Neo Tokyo Land Deeds. Each NFTs play an essential role in the game, which will be released in the future.

CryptoBatz is a collection of 9,666 blockchain Dwelling Bats, creatively directed by Ozzy Osbourne and built by a team of NFT obsessed nerds known as Sutter Systems. CryptoBatz is a chance to own a unique piece of collectible art created by one of the most legendary rock icons – Ozzy Osbourne.
The collection, created in collaboration with NFT studio Sutter Systems, also lets CrytoBatz owners create NFT mutations by having their Cryptobatz “bite” other NFTs in their Apple digital wallets. Known as “MutantBatz,” the feature will allow Cryptobatz buyers to create NFT mutations with Bored Ape Yacht Club, SupDucks and Cryptotoadz NFTs, as well as a fourth unannounced entity.
The NFT project is set to launch in January, with the CryptoBatz title referring to the now-infamous moment in which Osbourne bit off the head of a bat during a Des Moines, Iowa concert in 1982.
The minting event is on 20th January 2022.
The project is giving away a large number of whitelists. Follow their Discord channel to get more information.

NFTs experienced a meteoric rise this year, with the flash approaching in 2021. NFTs become more widespread as non-designers increasingly realise the potential of creating digital designs themselves. However, as big as 2021 has been for non-fungible tokens, industry players expect 2022 to be even more significant for it. What needs to be remembered is that, even though NFTs have had a great 2021, they remain exceedingly young. In other words, 2022 should see them grow even further as a subsector within crypto.
