Survey reveals most people buy NFTs ‘to make money’

A survey from DEXterlab revealed that most NFT investors are in it for the money. Per the report, NFT investments can bring investors profit when they make the right purchase decisions. An example is the Blocksmith Labs collections which would have brought an investor a 26x profit within three months.

The survey continued that the second reason most investors pile into the space is to have a sense of social belonging by belonging to a community and the “flex” of owning certain NFTs. Only 12.4% of respondents are Digital Art collectors who acquire these items to keep. The remaining 8.6% of NFT investors buy the assets for games-related purposes like having in-game access to special features and tools. Meanwhile, an average investor is willing to spend between $50-$500 on an asset.
