SpaceBudz: the first collection of 10 thousand NFTs on Cardano
These 10 thousand astronauts were among the first NFTs created on the Cardano blockchain after the activation of thehard fork Mary, which added the functionality of native tokens. It is worth noting that, unlike tokens on Ethereum, creating NFTs on Cardano does not need a smart contract, making the process less expensive and cumbersome.
The SpaceBudz project was founded by Alexander, operator of Berry Pool and creator of Nami Wallet, e Zieg, an NFT enthusiast who got his first CryptoPunk in 2017!
There growth of the NFT ecosystem on Cardano It is surprising. These SpaceBudz, for example, were sold for an average price of 50 ADA in March 2021, and now they are selling at incredible prices, with the current minimum price of over 5000 ADA.
Another one astronomical sale was that of SpaceBud # 3506, which yielded a menol.eth 400,000 ADA, equivalent to $ 852,000 at the time of the transaction:
I minted this bull SpaceBud for 50 ADA a few months back. Today I sold it for $ 852k. Huge thanks and props to the buyer @BlackAppleArt . This is just the beginning for SpaceBudz. #CNFTs https://t.co/GxZn98KMRe

THE CryptoKnitties and Clay Nation minimum prices on CNFT.io at the time of writing they are respectively 70 ADA And 1750 ADA.
AI-generated NFT art
We often talk about AI and robots that replace our mundane and repetitive jobs. But what about art? Can artificial intelligence be creative?
Here are a few NFTs that were generated by AI. Of course, there is still an element of humanity in them since creators have some degree of influence in the choice of some parameters, but the most of the work is done by algorithms.
THE minimum prices of EntheosAI and Deep Vision on CNFT.io at the time of writing they are respectively 15 ADA And 30 ADA.
