Alloy’s holiday gift guide for the fintech buff in your life

Fintech gifts

Holiday season is in full swing, and if you’re like me, you still haven’t done all of your holiday shopping. It seems everyone in my life has gotten into crypto this year, so to gain some inspiration for my upcoming shopping spree, I asked Alloy team members what I should get for the fintech fanatics in my life. Here are their top suggestions:

Nothing says “love” like commissioning your friends and family their very own NFT! They’ll be sure to cherish this sentimental digital memorabilia for years to come.

Dribble, Behance and Twitter are all great sources to find NFT artists.
