I’m trying to think of a more controversial acronym than NFT in 2023… and I’m failing. It is safe to say that while crypto hasn’t had the most shining year, NFT sellers, influencers and their community continue to thrive and sell out.

I recommend really not getting put off by the controversies surrounding FTX and crypto this year because there are NFT influencers who are bringing in hundreds of thousands of dollars in exchange for selling their art.

5. @DezBryant 

Dez Bryant

Post Frequency: Every day

Dez Bryant is one of those NFT influencers with an impressively large following and excellent engagement.

He rose to fame as a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys. However, he’s also known as the creator of Personal Corner, a company that helps athletes build communities and connect with fans using blockchain technology. This is what launched his career in the NFT and blockchain spaces.

Being both an athlete and a web3 innovator puts Bryant at the intersection of sports and NFTs, which is an excellent place to be in the influencer space.

6. @JadynViolet 

Jadyn Violet

Number of followers: 11.8k followers

Post Frequency: Every day

Jadyn Violet is a young beatmaker who hosts some of the most highly populated and entertaining Twitter spaces on web3. He most recently announced a partnership with number 1 music NFT platform, Sound.xyz. Violet is also brilliant and spreading the eye-opening news of music NFTs on web2 platforms like TikTok. 

7. @itsrosacecilia 

Rosa Cecilia 

Number of followers: 2,695 followers

Post Frequency: 3 times a week

Cecilia balances the line between web2 and web3 activity which is rare to find in the space with most commercial artists uninvolved in music NFTs and the ones who are solely invested in web3.

Cecilia launched her first NFT (genesis) in August of this year in collaboration with Snoop Dogg funded platform Sound.xyz.

She launches her next project in early October in partnership with Trax who share with Ceciliia a mission to onboard non-web3 listeners to the benefits of web3 for music artists and listeners alike. 

Final Words and How to Get Started

If you’re unsure as to how to go about educating yourself on web3, the blockchain and the scene on Twitter, I recommend you join a Twitter Space or two and request to speak.

The beauty with the space is the sense of community; everyone is willing to help and even set up Google Meets to onboard you into the space and advise you on how you might contribute.

NFT influencers are unlike web2 influencers in that the barrier between influencer and follower aren’t so high seeing that the NFT influencer depends on the active participation of the follower to buy NFTs and speak in spaces. So don’t be shy!
