NFTs have taken the world of digital assets by storm, quickly establishing themselves as a pioneering new market for blockchain enthusiasts, digital investors and art aficionados. While there are many forms of NFTs, from exclusive music tracks to gamified clubs for members who hold a relevant NFT, the most common type of NFT is visual art.
Under the broad category of visual art, there are a plethora of different topics and niche interests for which there are available NFTs. However, one topic that is globally appreciated is city-scapes. Whether represented through digitally generated art, photography or traditional art pieces, people all over the world have a love of cities and urban landscapes.
