The NFT sector is growing worldwide, day by day. And while the crypto world is still in relative infancy it’s not going away, and neither are NFTs. Whether used for investing and speculating, collecting and trading, or for identity, credentials or community building, NFTs have captured the public’s imagination in ways that Cryptocurrency and DeFi haven’t.

While not many of us are likely to buy a $69m Beeple or a $1M Cryptopunk or Bored Ape, in this short course we have introduced you to NFT fundamentals, how to buy and mint your own NFTs, and flagged some of the issues that you need to be careful of in the NFT world. This final piece offers you a list of further articles and channels (which is by no means exhaustive) that you can follow down the rabbit hole as far as you’d like to go.

Enjoy your exploration of this fascinating, emerging world!

For diving into NFT communities, see

Twitter and Discord – the NFT community lives on Twitter and Discord. If you open up the “Topics” section on Twitter, you’ll see NFTs there, follow it and you’ll start seeing a lot more discussion around NFTs in your feed. Once you find a couple of projects that you’re interested in, join their Discord and you’ll find a whole community of people that can help you learn more.
