Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs as they’re commonly known, are the latest in the cryptocurrency phenomenon to go mainstream. In 2020, the NFT market hit over $250 million in trading and year-over-year investments went up 299%. They’ve become the hottest asset in the digital currency market and with investors becoming increasingly curious, accountants are beginning to ask questions about the tax implications of NFTs.
