We bring you 5 trivia factoids that are real, plus 1 faker than a $20 Birkin bag.  Can you spot the knockoff? 

The most valuable NFT sold at $91.8 Million.

The most valuable NFT up to this date, made by PAK, an alleged digital artist and crypto collector (though some claim PAK may be a team), sold at the impressive amount of 91.8 million dollars. This is what it looks like.

More men than women collect NFTs on average, although in Thailand, women take the lead.

Men are three times more likely than women to be collectors of NFTs. Nonetheless, 30% of women in Thailand own NFTs, compared to just 23% of men. The only other surveyed country where women had more NFTs than men was Venezuela, where 11% of women own NFTs, compared to 10% of men.

On May 10, 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz spent 10,000 Bitcoin for 2 Papa John’s pizzas in Florida. This was the first recorded Bitcoin payment for goods and was valued at about $40 at the time. That Bitcoin is now worth over $400 million.

Berners-Lee, the World Wide Web inventor, is the son of British mathematicians and computer scientists Mary Lee Woods and Conway Berners-Lee. He worked on the first commercially built electronic computer, the Ferranti Mark 1. In college, Berners-Lee built a computer out of an old television set.
Before settling on “the Web,” Berners-Lee thought of the names “Information Mesh,” “The Information Mine,” and “Mine of Information.” The concept www3 refers to a subdomain name.

The fashion industry and the NFTs

One of the most relevant applications of NFTs is its ability to tie itself to a physical product offered by a brand. The token becomes the embodiment of the creation in the digital world, including luxury items, rare sneakers, or watches.

Through the issuance of NFT by brands, consumers have proof of purchase and a guarantee of the authenticity of their product. Several players have already positioned themselves to support companies in this area, such as the blockchains Arianee, GoodsID, and Aura, launched by the LVMH group.

Crypto in Mexico

Currently, Mexico allows the use of cryptocurrencies in establishments whose owners are originally from America, such as Starbucks, Burger King, Mcdonald's, and Shake Shack.

Although it is not yet a legal currency in Mexico, its use is not illegal, according to the notices issued by the Condusef and the Bank of Mexico regarding this technology. In Mexico, Bitcoin is legitimated and recognized as a mean of payment and transmission of value without being legal tender.
