Non-fungible tokens are establishing themselves in the mainstream, disrupting experts and launching valuation discussions. As with any market, buyers and sellers will ultimately be the judge.


As the debate rages over non-fungible tokens, it has become clear there are two sides. There are innovators who see vast potential, collectors and investors who are drawn in, and all manner of fans of these digital assets for a wide variety of reasons. There are also the detractors and naysayers, who speak to bubbles, valuation challenges, and bystanders who try to make facile comparisons to traditional asset classes and use words like “fad”…

Comparable analysis is even more challenging in a rapidly advancing market.

2.) Most comparable companies are private, and thus hard to analyze.
