Twitter is what your world is talking about right now. It’s real-time, relevant, and what’s coming next for the NFT space. All the NFT projects have a massive following on Twitter.

The NFT world is getting bigger and bigger each passing day, making it impossible to find legit projects with a long-term outlook. But we can narrow down our options when we understand where the big money is coming from. Most of the NFT projects moonshot when top celebrities, entrepreneurs, and artists start buying in masses. So if you can follow them on a platform like Twitter, you not only gain their insights on different projects, but you can also see the projects they are interested in. In this article, we present you with a list of the top 15 NFT influencers you should follow right now.
Note- There is no particular order here. They are all doing great things for the NFT space.
One of the early NFT collectors of Crypto Punks and other top collections is DeeZe. He is also the community manager of Fractional art, a decentralized protocol for owners to fractionalize their NFTs and mint tokens in return. Deeze has been on Twitter for quite some time and has built a decent following of 74.9K followers. He mainly advocates for photography NFTs and has a massive gallery. To educate newer audiences, he also hosts Twitter spaces where he brings in other top artists and photographers.
Farokh is one of the youngest Instagram influencers who amassed close to 150 million viewership for his social media agency, GoodLife. In 2017, he was also listed in Forbes magazine for Top 15 influencers you should follow. Earlier this year, Farokh became a major proponent of Clubhouse, and he started a regular show on NFTs. He is a big collector of Cool Cats, Bored Apes, and Crypto Punks. We also saw him losing access to his wallet that had NFTs worth over 250+ ETH. But still, he is regarded as one of the biggest supporters of NFTs.
If someone is flipping NFTs and made nearly 800 ETH in 30 days, then they know what the hell they are doing. We are talking about the one and only— MEV Collector. He is one of the biggest collectors in the NFT space with over 2500 assets. He made close to 30,000% gains from one single collection—Loot Project. In one of his recent Tweets, he explained that he followed the smart money and trusted the data, to get such massive returns in a short period.
He also got in early on On1Force and Bored Ape Yacht Club. He believes anyone can replicate his success if they constantly grind and follow smart buys. MEV collector also shares on Twitter what he sees on-chain and uses etherscan to track data effectively.
Beanie on Twitter has grown quite rapidly over the last couple of months. He now has more than 96k followers. People tune in for his takes on different projects and listen to his conversations with other OG collectors. He also has Beanie Capital that aims to support up-and-coming projects in the NFT and Defi space. Beanie owns many top-tier NFTs like Crypto Punks and Meta Hero. He also won big with Cool Cats. Yesterday, he mentioned his cats may be worth over 300 ETH right now, given he bought them for 100 ETH.
Another major supporter of NFT artists and musicians is RealMissNFT. She is a column writer for nft plazas where she covers main trends and highlights creators of that particular week. Her daily thoughts on Twitter are an inspiration for many artists, as she supports many small accounts in this space. RealMiss also drops many updates on upcoming NFT collections that have good potential. Check out her NFT gallery here.

This Twitter account belongs to none other than the legendary rapper- Snoop Dogg. For a while, this was not known to many of his followers, but he recently proved it by sending 1 ETH from this account. Snoop is one of the biggest names in the music industry, and he now is taking a huge interest in collecting NFTs. With his following, he is changing the fortunes of many artists and collections. The name of the account is inspired by a 15th-century banker who founded one of the wealthiest and most influential families in all of Italy. Even though he doesn’t have thousands of NFTs in his collection, most of his assets are worth over a million. His entire collection is said to be worth 17 million dollars.
Another account that I passionately follow is Peruggia. It would be nice to see who is the actual person behind this account. He is one of the early collectors of Crypto Punks and constantly talks about how the future of NFTs is going to be. Unlike many social media influencers, Peruggia does not disclose his collection, but his thought leadership is well respected in the community. His connections with top entrepreneurs in the Crypto and NFT space are a big plus. You can get a better understanding of how smart money works in the NFT world.
There will never be a list of NFT influencers without Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary is always known to explore new trends in the industry, and he realized the potential of NFTs when started VeeFriends a couple of months back. He not only has one of the top NFT collections in the world but also— is the most followed person on multiple platforms. He has a great list of videos on Youtube, explaining the fundamentals of NFTs and how to select good projects. They can really help if you are just starting out. His influence in the NFT community drives an insane amount of money. Many people like Logan Paul and Odel Beckham Jr followed Gary in pursuing their NFT journey. So it is only right to follow them and gain more insights into the industry.
Andrew is a great writer and has done excellent work for Verge, Washington Post, and Insider. He educates his audience and helps them understand the different nuances that surround this space. His recent article on NFT scammers is a must-read. I added this account to this list because— it is important to learn before you jump into any kind of NFT project. Andrew has some great Threads on NFTs too. And he appears to love the Cool Cats collection.
The proud owner of punk 294 is Aftab Hossain, aka, DCinvestor. He is again one of the early adopters of many top collections like Ringers, AutoGlyph, XCopy, and Chromie Squiggle. You can check his gallery here. His collection speaks for itself, but his thoughts on Twitter will help get a lot of clarity on what’s actually happening in this newly spawned industry. He has over 100k followers, and people respect his ideas very much. He always views NFTs from a macro perspective and helps others understand how valuable these JPEGs are going to be in the near future. If you want a daily dose of unbiased opinions on the current state of NFT markets, you need to follow DCinvestor now.
Another huge supporter of Crypto Punks and a true OG in NFTs is Punk4156. He bought his punk for more than a million dollars. There is even a song about 4156. He is also a believer in the XCOPY rare collection, and he considers the artwork to be the masterpiece of this century. In an interview, he said “Reflection” by XCOPY is one of his favorite pieces. On Twitter, he is extremely active and puts out top-notch content based on everything surrounding NFTs.
This account is my favorite. I have seen the amount of value punk 6529 delivers on a daily basis, and if you are into NFTs, you have to follow him to get objective insights. His gallery is also one of its kind. I recommend you to read all his threads to gain a basic understanding of NFTs and the underlying significance of JPEGs. He breaks down everything in simple terms, so you don’t have to worry. His end goal is to showcase all of his collected artwork in the 6259 Museum. Check out his OS collection here.
Loopify is the founder of two interesting NFT-based projects that are creating significant market demand right now. He started TheTreeverse as an NFT collectibles project, and it now became a full-blown metaverse. It is a 2D theme open world where NFT owners can interact and customize different features of the metaverse. He is trying to create a play-to-earn model for this game, as blockchain gaming is going to dominate the NFT industry in the future. He also launched a production company called Interleave, which aims to bring 3D animated films featuring different NFTS. I love reading his threads, and he adds a lot of value to the community, as he once was a crypto artist and is now an active investor and founder of multiple projects.
If I give you free NFTs and a ton of cash, would you follow me? I think I know the answer. Flurnft is a whale investor in this space, and from what we can see on his Twitter bio, he gave away nearly $500k and many quality NFTs. How can you not follow him? Jokes aside, he has one of the best NFT collections with more than 4500 assets. His tweets hold a lot of value and drive many people to new and upcoming projects. As he invests actively, it is wise to track which projects he is interested in. Do not FOMO in without doing research. But it will help you a lot in keeping up with daily updates and the latest developments in this space.
Danny is a self-made millionaire who made life-changing money by investing early in bitcoin and many altcoins, which are now in the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap. He made a fortune by betting on tokens, and he is now repeating the same with non-fungible tokens. The first NFT he bought was a rare Axie. At that time, the play-to-earn game was not so popular, and one Axie NFT was only $200. Danny made massive returns by snatching up top-tier Axies. He is also a huge supporter of Crypto Punks and has one of the rarest punks. In total, he collected 22 CryptoPunks, spending more than $1.5 million.
We can go on and on about who are the best people to follow in this space, and that list would not have an end. It is because everyone brings something unique. Everyone shares a different story. And that is important. Few notable ones I may have missed are— FVCKRENDER, XCOPY, richerd, and sartoshi.
Remember- it pays to know. And to get early opportunities in NFTs, you need to surround yourself with the smartest minds in the industry. Twitter enables you to do that, so leverage it as much as you can. I hope you found someone you can relate to and learn something new from these top 15 NFT influencers.
