Colexion is known for creating exclusive NFTs of well-established celebrities. The fact that the artwork is selling at such a reasonable price also shows that such art is about to gain more mainstream acceptance.
Not only this, Yuvi’s fans have additionally created his first-ever DAO- ‘Yuvi DAO’ as a gesture of love and support. The DAO is one of the world’s first-ever collector’s DAO in the Sports & Entertainment segment, bringing all entertainment fans to Web 3. Launched with the leading marketplace Colexion on Polygon, the exclusive collection is the most in-demand NFT to foray into the world of digital collectibles.

DAOs can be thought of as friends on the internet with a shared checking account.
