Behind the numbers (Piper Sandler):

"NFTs have burst onto the scene in the last 12 months. 22% of teens had heard of NFTs when asked, with 33% of Males having heard of the digital assets. Of those that have heard of them, 10% have purchased NFTs. We are interested to see how this number evolves, and if the NFT craze will be sustainable in its growth."
