NFTs Back in Vogue 2025?

The “MYAKU-MYAKU” NFTs will have no cash value and cannot be bought or sold, although there will be proof of authenticity. No fees will be charged to create a “wallet” (a virtual “box” on the Internet to manage crypto assets) and to mint them on the blockchain.  ID will be required for registration for the app “EXPO2025 DIGITAL WALLET.”

Are NFTs dead?

As Japan’s SBI steps up its efforts to drop NFTs during a 2025 event several American firms have been removing NFT purchase protection as trading declines.

Earlier this week it emerged the payments giant PayPal plans to remove non-fungible token (NFT) purchases from its purchase protection program from May 20. In an online announcement, PayPal said amendments to its protection program will exclude NFTs and any payments that you initiated via a third-party platform using the PayPal Balance.

In January, GameStop revealed it had shut down its NFT marketplace, signalling its withdrawal from the cryptocurrency space. The announcement was made via a statement on the platform with the firm stating “the continuing regulatory uncertainty of the crypto space” as the primary reason behind this decision.

Trading of NFTs has been in decline for over a year. Data compiled by Statista shows the number of active wallets involved in NFT trading has declined.
