NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are slowly gaining traction across the globe as a feasible investment option. While popular NFT collections such as the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and CryptoPunk have found support from celebrities and regulators alike, there are several other less-popular (and less-costly) NFT collections that you can explore. As per CoinMarketCap data, NFTs have seen an all-time sales volume of over $7.7 billion, with a total market cap of $1.8 billion at the time of writing. Under this backdrop, finance guide SavingSpot has conducted a study to figure out the interest and sentiment on NFTs around the world.
As per the study, Singapore leads in terms of NFT searches, with 18,717 searches per million residents per month. Hong Kong comes in second, followed by Canada, Iceland, and the US.
The study also looked at the countries where NFTs are liked and disliked the most. Montenegro leads in that segment, with 862 positive posts per 1,000 tweets on NFTs. Bosnia and Herzegovina comes in second with 788, and Luxembourg was ranked third with a count of 781.

Poland was found to be the “most anti-NFT country,” with 227 negative posts per 1,000 tweets. Nicaragua was ranked second with 226 negative posts, followed by Belize with 193 posts.
