5. Jiang Zhuoer: PFP NFT will collapse within 20 days
The founder of BTC.TOP Pool, Jiang Zhuoer, predicted that PFP NFT will collapse within 20 days. The iconic event is the appearance of Loot (text NFT).
Jiang Zhuoer believes that the demand for PFP NFTs will dry up much faster than ordinary funds due to lack of retail investors. The demand for NFT admission funds is limited, and the supply (PFP) is unlimited. Any painter can easily draw a large number of avatars (even generated automatically). A JPG is worth 100ETH~1000ETH is very absurd. The emergence of Loot (text NFT) directly pulled the supply to infinity, which was a landmark event of the collapse of PFP NFT.
Jiang Zhuoer also said that at this time a year ago, I predicted that DeFi’s liquidity mining would collapse within 20 days, and as a result, it collapsed within 24 hours.
