Twitch streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is the latest to get in on the NFT craze by announcing his own collection of virtual items going up for sale in April.
Chances are if you’ve been on Twitter over the last month you’ve seen at least someone talking about or mention NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens.
What are NFTs?
Basically, they’re units of data on a digital ledger called a blockchain, where each NFT can represent a unique digital item, such as a piece of art.
This unit of data, in theory, means you’re now able to own a unique piece of limited-run art completely online. Sure others might be able to save a picture of it or screen record the piece, but having an NFT means you own a bona-fide orginal from the artist themselves.
The craze has taken off in recent months, with everyone from Lindsay Lohan to 100 Thieves coming out with their own Tokens, and now Tfue is offering up a collection of his own.

We have to hand it to the streamer here for the name of this set, as “NFTfue” is exactly what we’d call it as well. Up for sale will be three animated NFTs, limited to thirty-three editions all digitally signed by Tfue.
On top of that, there are three Bobblehead NFTs that “bring Tfue to life” on offer as well. The Bobblehead’s might see the largest bidding wars, as each one will also come with an actual physical version of the Bobblehead shipped to whoever ends up owning each NFT.
“I was really hands on with the art direction – wanting to bring a high-level of design to the NFTs that bring characters of me to life,” Tfue said about his NFTs.”I’m excited to be the first in the gaming space to launch, and am excited to see excitement the drop will generate.”
The “NFTfue” auction will run for ten days, from April 8 to 18, so there’s really no telling how high the price for each NFT will end up climbing once it’s all done.
Like we mentioned there are NFTs out there that have sold for millions of dollars, and Tfue is certainly hoping for things to go in that direction, but in the end it’s all up to the bidders.
