The Dragon Touch Digital Picture Frame is a cost effective digital frame.
The Dragon Touch Digital Picture Frame is the cheapest and most accessible digital frame for displaying NFTs on this list. That's because the Dragon Touch is designed as a standard household digital picture frame meant for cycling through photos of family and friends.

This previously hasn't been possible without the use of VR headsets or expensive production-level equipment like they used for the Tupac hologram at Coachella.
While the Looking Glass certainly won't support every NFT, I can see more 3D pieces coming in the future that could take advantage of this tech. One example is this NFT minted by artist Reggie Watts that came with the device included. The Looking Glass is currently available for pre-order with a discounted price of $250 .

The display handles any image or video that can play in a web browser making it perfect for all types of NFTs and formats.
Despite the hefty price point of the MonoX7, I could see it quickly becoming a new standard for NFT collectors looking for an elegant solution to display all of their digital art in a physical space. The base model with a 1080 x 1920 display starts at $599 .

The DIY approach involves printing still images of your NFTs (so this won't work for looping videos or other formats) and creating a custom art label similar to the ones featured next to prominent works in museums. Andrew's label features information like the title of the piece, the artist, when he purchased it, and a handy QR Code that links to an informational page about the NFT on the OpenSea marketplace.
It's a cheap and binance евро elegant solution (Andrew made his for less than $20) for collectors who don't want more screen time in their day to day lives. I can definitely see more galleries adopting this format for NFT events in real life too.
