Before NFT happens, the appreciation form for an artist’s or collector’s work was usually transactional or one-way. For example, purchasing art through a gallery. Collectors rarely have direct access to the artists. In fact, it is often the galleries that try to cut-off on possibilities like this for one reason or another.
NFT offers the two-way connection. Everyone connected to the internet can access NFT collection on various global marketplace platforms. One example, in SuperRare, an ID @colborn is the collector with the largest transaction. He purchased 204 NFT works produced by 17 creators for $166,264, his biggest purchase was worth of $44,226.
