What else did Powell say during the interview? The CEO believes that 2021 will go down in history as the year of the NFT. Powell argued that in a few years, the non-fungible token market will outgrow the current “speculation” phase, highlighting three phases of development:

“The first phase is speculation, the second phase is buying art and supporting artists, and the third phase is the functional use of the NFT.”
