NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are “unique and non-interchangeable units of data stored on the blockchain”, and they allow users to prove ownership of their digital assets. An NFT project can consist of many things, depending on how the NFT artists have designed them. Various aspects of the token can be differing levels of rarity, and by doing an in-depth analysis through websites such as rarity.solantasy.net or cnft.tools, we can see how rare the NFT is compared to the rest from its drop.
It will become increasingly important to stay up to date with the NFT space going forward, as the NFT community is exponentially growing and the trends/movements of the market are changing every day – much like many existing blockchain projects.
NFT influencers will play a huge role in the space going forward, as their opinions will be broadcast to everyone looking for the best NFT Twitter accounts to follow regarding the NFT space.
In this article, we will do our own type of ‘technical analysis’ as to which NFT creators are worth following. As always, nothing here should be taken as financial advice – please invest your finance responsibly when choosing which Twitter accounts to follow.
Top NFT Twitter Accounts
Gary Vaynerchuk, or Gary Vee, is the CEO of Vaynermedia and a renowned investor in many successful endeavors.
He has been a huge advocate of NFT’s, taking his first step into the crypto art space in May of 2021 when he launched his NFT collection, VeeFriends. This project was designed to promote a meaningful global economy, centered around intellectual property and community when purchasing his non-fungible tokens.
He has done a lot to bring NFT’s more mainstream, by involving himself in many different industries – such as Pokemon trading card collecting – and using his fanbase and accrued respect to push the message of blockchain and NFTs to the wider population.
Being the digital artist himself behind ‘VeeFriends’, he is largely operating on the principle of “you are what you eat” – he is very invested and involved with NFTs so he feels that he is able to promote them to his audiences without just watching from the side-lines.
Solanart is the largest and most well-known NFT marketplace on the Solana blockchain. Often hailed as the “next best blockchain” by some (and the opposite by others!), Solana boasts low gas fees and very fast transaction speed, making it a very popular choice in NFT market for some.
Whilst not a singular investor persona behind the account, the Solanart Twitter account very often showcases and retweets many NFT collections from the various artists who use its platform. They tend not to use a biased viewpoint, simply showcasing the art, using cases, and leaving the community to make their own informed decisions.
Solanart will play a huge part in the NFT space craze that is still about to come, as the metrics show its userbase increasing substantially on a daily basis. They often post inspiring quotes about blockchain technology, as well as showcase the growth of their platforms by using hard statistics.
The very first and arguably most well-known NFT marketplace, the OpenSea Twitter account has the same recognizable branding and information as to their main site.
OpenSea was the very first marketplace to list an NFT, and they have played a huge part in the non-fungible token growth that has taken place over the past few years. Many of the best investors, and the best projects, have made people millions.
The OpenSea Twitter account plays much a similar part to the Solanart handle, retweeting lots of very detailed and interesting NFT art pieces – without giving a specified opinion on whether they should be invested in or not.
Everyone knows the English Sidemen phenomena that are KSI, and he too is very interested in not just the crypto space – but the NFT space also.
KSI’s separate Twitter account is only one of many NFT influencers to crop up recently, garnering over 265,000 followers. He began with covering his thoughts on NFTs located on the Ethereum blockchain, but is now more invested in the Solana blockchain NFTs instead – showcasing collections such as ‘Solana Monkey Business’ and ‘Degenerate Ape Academy’.
KSI’s crypto Twitter account has had a huge impact in bringing the NFT space more mainstream, as it often overlaps with his main Twitter account – bringing lots of new investors from industries such as YouTube, wider content creation, and even boxing/sports.
This is the only single project I have advertised on this site, and I chose it as a good example because it encapsulates many things that NFT influencers will become more and more renowned for as the space grows in popularity. MonkeDAO is a decentralized autonomous organization, meaning that is a group of people holding NFT’s from that project that can vote using decentralized governance to make decisions on the project.
I have chosen this group of influencers to talk about because we will begin to see more and more of this as NFT’s become more mainstream and allow for people to vote on their favorite projects in these types of decentralized organizations.
Controlled by the popular crypto influencer Mark Cuban, the namesake NFT influencer platform‘s sole purpose is to promote NFT’s and the metaverse to the wider public through their Twitter account.
They are integral to the space of NFT’s right now, as they regularly run giveaways to entice new investors, post funny messages regarding NFT’s, and most importantly – they retweet examples of NFT projects out there on the blockchain for nearly 100,000 people to view.
The Ethermon NFT project could be a very interesting influencer in the space to view on Twitter, as it creates a very personal and nostalgic link for many to NFTs – Pokemon.
Ethermon, a play of words denoting ‘Pokemon’-esque characters on the Ethereum blockchain, is a ‘play-to-earn’ blockchain game in which users will battle their Ethermon creatures and earn rewards in the form of cryptocurrency.
Influencer accounts like this are so important in bridging the gap between normal video gaming and blockchain gaming, as they evoke a sense of nostalgia in past and current Pokemon fans.
The embodiment of the typical ‘Ethereum NFT collector’, Beanie.eth has it all – the customized Ethereum address name, the ‘CryptoPunks’ profile picture, and the ‘Always DYOR’ in their bio.
Beanie.eth has been around for quite a while and is very active on Twitter as an NFT influencer to promote non-fungible token growth – and not just in projects he himself is invested in. Beanie.eth has been influential in many Ethereum blockchain projects, such as CryptoPunks – and often tweets hypothesizing his calls on where the market will move next, as well as how he thinks certain projects will perform.
A Twitter NFT influencer with over 7,900 NFTs in their collection, flurnft has caused quite the stir in the blockchain space. Whilst he does occasionally take paid advertisements for NFT projects, he also gives his opinions on what NFTs he believes will do well.
He is a huge advocate, similar to Gary Vaynerchuk, that NFTs will be around for generations to come and will be a hugely integral part of the world going forward and does his best to welcome as many people as possible.
Assuming the complete persona of one of the popular Ethereum NFT project ‘CryptoPunks’, Punk6529 is part of the unique type of NFT influencers who has significantly fewer NFTs (only 968) – but has far more expensive ones. He is mainly involved with the ‘CryptoPunks’ project, holding over five of these punks which were last valued at between 25 and 100 Ethereum.
