5 new PFP NFT banners to add a touch of personality to your Twitter profile
Some of the first NFTs that have ever been created were in the form of PFP (picture of proof) and often used as social media profile pictures. The first PFPs that emerged were “CryptoPunks” which are 10,000 computer generated portraits of punks in the size of 24 by 24 pixels. At first, its creators gave CryptoPunks away for free so anyone with an Ethereum wallet could claim one. During the NFT boom in 2021, the Punks gained value in a parabolic rise. In Q2 of 2021, other projects like Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), Meebits, Pudgy Penguins and others rallied the PFPs to the fore. Even Christie’s curated an exclusive PFP NFTs sale.
Today, NFT profile banners are gaining popularity on platforms like Twitter and Discord as well. Like their PFP avatar counterparts, banner NFTs also serve as a PFP or a verification of their ownership of the NFT asset. Moreover, They allow users to express their identity online through profile customization, such as applying an avatar and biograph.
