A few weeks back, Square’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, sold his first Tweet as NFT for $2.9 million. These sales have attracted lots of interest amongst mainstream investors.

Nevertheless, there has been a minor difficulty with NFTs, as investors generally buy content using cryptocurrencies. While utilizing cryptos to buy NFT collections has its opportunities, it has somehow stopped multiple investors who do not hold digital currencies from getting associated with the recent trend. Based on this, Circle has revealed the initiative to facilitate conventional investors to penetrate the NFT market.
