What Digital Displays are Best for Your NFTs – From Cheap to Pricey
Finding a way to display your NFTs can be a confusing task though. Here are some ideas to make the most of your digital art, and enjoy seeing them every day. There are several factors to consider in how and where you want to display your digital art. The first, is where: do you want a wall hanging, desktop, standalone, or projected display?
There are positives and negatives to each, but it likely boils down to your space. Consider the size of the space – you don’t want to overwhelm a wall with a massive screen, or have a tiny screen on a huge wall. Aim for a screen no larger than 50% of the available wall space.
NFTs can be displayed on virtually any digital screen. If you spend a lot on traditional art, you’d get a great frame to show it off, and put it on a prominent wall or stand. The same can be said for NFTs – get a high definition screen and put it somewhere that you’ll be able to enjoy it regularly. Below are our favorite screens for displaying your NFTs.
