The NFT space continues to gain substantive traction as an increasingly meaningful investing concept. It’s a new marketplace. And new marketplaces take time to get their roots in and go mainstream. But every big story that centers on that new marketplace can represent a big step introducing more and more people to how that marketplace works.
In the case of the NFT space, we have seen several major stories helping to put the concept in place as front-page news.
NFTs were blazing hot earlier this year after a JPEG file by the digital artist Beeple sold for $69 million at Christie’s in March, and then the energy faded. Then it was rekindled this summer when multiple stories broke about kids making millions with simple digital image NFTs. Then it faded again, but less so.
Now, over recent days, the story has reached politics as Creatd Inc. (Nasdaq:CRTD) shares blasted off for nearly 70% in gains on more than 5x the stock’s average volume when the company announced an NFT drop consisting of three photos of Donald Trump. The drop was made to order for Reddit-based chatroom traders to embrace.
However, the net effect is still positive for every stock in the NFT space because the story has been widely consumed and serves as a vessel through which to introduce the concept of NFTs to millions more people. And, even better, it does so by highlighting the massive success reaped by all of the shareholders involved in an NFT-focused stock.
With that in mind, we take a look here at a handful of other interesting stocks focused on NFTs.

WISeKey International Holding Ltd. ADR (Nasdaq:WKEY) recently announced that it has created an NFT development business segment enriched with world-class technical resources to develop specialized branded NFT marketplaces with top-tier design and development services and NFT smart contract auditing solutions.
According to the release, WISeKey’s White-Label NFT Marketplace platform constantly monitors clients’ NFT marketplace and provides cybersecurity, identity management, marketing and support. The White-Label WISeKey NFT Marketplace platform is similar to its WISe.ART marketplace platform, the only difference is that White-Label NFT Marketplace platform developed is readily available to use like “plug and play” upon demand, versus other traditional NFT marketplace platforms that require development of the whole platform from scratch, thus saving time and money to WISeKey’s partners/clients. Clients can deploy a NFT platform for an initial fee of $250,000, while the setup of traditional NFT platforms can cost millions of dollars and months of development.
And the stock has been acting well over recent days, up something like 2% in that time.
WISeKey International Holding Ltd. ADR (Nasdaq:WKEY) managed to rope in revenues totaling $9M in overall sales during the company’s most recently reported quarterly financial data — a figure that represents a rate of top line growth of -27.5%, as compared to year-ago data in comparable terms. In addition, the company has a strong balance sheet, with cash levels exceeding current liabilities ($35.7M against $21M).
SFLMAVEN (OTC US:SFLM) is a premium provider of high-end luxury goods to discerning clientele globally. The company has driven over $140 million in sales and more than 100k positive reviews since its inception as a rapidly growing small-cap auctioneer of rare high-end luxury goods.
It has also parlayed that track record into the NFT marketplace recently, with rapid success in terms of building blocks.
SFLMAVEN (OTC US:SFLM) this morning provided a year-to-date operational and performance update ahead of the company’s seasonally strongest period of the year, including news that gross revenues are up 33.9% on year-over-year basis to $7.76 million, net sales are up 33.2% on year-over-year basis to $6.97 million, 9,406 products have been sold this year, up 31.5% on year-over-year basis, and the average sales price of items sold in 2021 stands at $825.35, up 2% on year-over-year basis.
Management notes that the final two months of the year are historically the strongest for SFLMaven and the broader high-end luxury goods marketplace. Due to continuing global supply chain constraints, the Company stands to benefit from inventory building problems faced by competing luxury goods dealers that manufacture products and rely on logistics and supply chain factors as holiday demand spikes later this quarter. This could further bolster growth in the Company’s primary revenue-producing segment.
SFLMaven also continues to develop its new Collectibles Marketplace strategy. As noted in its communications in September, the Company has launched a new segment that focuses on the thriving collectibles market, including non-fungible tokens (NFTs), baseball cards, coins, comic books, handbags, sneakers, and other collectible memorabilia. The first phase of this launch is focused on developing a unique inventory of digital artwork capable of driving value in the NFT marketplace. To that end, the Company has already signed two very talented digital artists, Larry Calabrese and SubtleCodes. Management looks forward to providing further updates on exciting next steps in this process very soon.
SFLMAVEN (OTC US:SFLM) CEO, Joseph Ladin, noted that, “2021 has shown broad-based growth in every core metric we track. And this is a highly seasonal business, which suggests we are extremely well positioned as we head into the holiday shopping season with all engines firing. In addition, given that we do no manufacturing, we are not in any way subject to the global supply chain crisis plaguing so many retailers this year. In fact, we may actually see a boost from diverted demand as primary dealers face potential inventory shortfalls.”
