The event we’ve all been anticipating is upon us, the 2022 FIFA World Cup kicked off this weekend in Qatar, and millions of soccer fans are rejoicing! However, this year brings with it a different prospect. Today, athlete NFT collections and Bored Apes in Adidas commercials are the new norm. In this context, what collections are among the top NFTs this first week of the FIFA World Cup?
In 2018, during the last FIFA World Cup in Russia, the terms NFT and Web3 were not used in common day-to-day conversations. This year, not only are soccer diehards quenching their thirst for sports and competition, and they are getting their fill of various World Cup related Web3 releases.
