These are all skill sets that you can learn as you progress through all of the major categories of NFT activities right now.

I thought it would be nice to map the branches of what a modern NFT skill tree might look like, so for today’s post, I came up with 21 main areas of interest developed from the excellent work of Alex Gedevani. Table of NFT verticals.
