As 2022 comes to an end, we at NFTexpress present to you the best and most promising NFTs for PFP collections of 2023.

Owning a non-fungible token can be a gateway to exclusive platforms, unique avatar characters and VRM files that only the holder can use.

RTFKT Studios has already launched a virtual space that works with NFTs for holders of the ClonX collection. Also, they have enabled the ability to clone the NFT for use in other virtual worlds and as a PFP on Twitter for example.
In addition, RTFKT granted clone owners the full commercial right to the NFTs. As a result, anyone who owns one can use it in any creative endeavor they have in mind. The company also created a Discord channel for 3D files so that users can download, customize and use their NFTs on different platforms.
Manufactured by the team behind the Metakey NFT collection, it is Metakrew. This project is one of the most affordable we will feature in this NFTexpress article.

In addition, they announced that the NFTs from the collection will be available for use in an upcoming virtual world of the project called New Ganymede. Images of the game were revealed in a preview in mid-2022, but it still has no release date. With the project still in its early stages, now might be your best chance to get involved.
Perhaps, the best known project in the NFT world. Yuga Labs will launch its new game and virtual world called Otherside, which will grant access to the platform to all users who have one of its NFTs.
Yuga Labs owns the rights to the five collections we will review below and each one has different utilities and values, as well as being an entry asset to the “Other Side”.
Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC)

Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC)
The Mutant Apes is a collection of 20,000 NFTs that were created as a linked branch of the previous collection. First, 10,000 were issued to each BAYC holder, in a 1:1 airdrop.
The remaining, i.e. 10,000 NFTs, were sold in a public auction to whoever was willing to pay the values that were bid. Owning a Mutant Ape grants benefits such as: being chosen for upcoming special airdrops, or like the draw that took place in March 2022 where they raffled off ApeCointhe project’s native token.
Bored Ape Kennel Club
This collection was launched in April 2021 as the third collection in the Bored Ape family, which was already grabbing all the flashes for its success.
