This year, NFT banner are becoming more popular as PFPs have become the primary method of mainstreaming NFTs. Twitter, Discord, and other platforms are increasingly using NFT profile banners (or PFBs).
There’s little attention given to banners NFTs as compared to avatar NFTs. Here are 10 great options to make your Twitter profile a little more exciting.
What are NFT banner and why might you want one
It is fairly straightforward to understand how banner NFTs work just as NFT PFPs do today. As avatars do with NFTs, banner NFTs give people the same ability to express their identity via their profile pictures.
It goes without saying that banners give account owners greater real estate, regardless of whether they’re on Twitter or not. Due to this, NFT banners on social media may become more important to NFT lovers in the future.
Besides NFT photography, 1-of-1 art, and combining different PFPs into one image, many people are using crypto art in their profile banners. In this list, we’re mostly looking at banners designed to serve as profile banners. Their banners even use generative art practices from PFP.
Midnight Breeze: The Number 1 NFT banner collection?
First off, let’s check out Midnight Breeze, possibly the most famous PFB collection out there. The Dutch artist Dutchtide created this collection of 6,969 NFTs. While some of the other entries in this list have a more conventional approach to PFP, Dutchtide clearly took a more direct approach to Midnight Breeze.
This means that there is a unique lore, utility, and roadmap attached to the project. Midnight Breeze might well be the most popular NFT banner collection right now with its 0.33 ETH floor price and more than 3,000 ETH in secondary sales volume.
Featuring 295 illustrated banner NFTs, Nekomura is a great collection to spend some time with.

It was ultimately decided by Nekomura to cap the collection at 295 NFTs. Nekomura has over 130,000 followers on Twitter, making this quite notable. Regardless, Nekomura banner NFT holders can expect future rewards from the team.

This project is being branded under the Thinitos NFT PFP-B standard. Profile Picture & Banner, as you might guess. This is the first time a project will provide a complete set of NFTs, and Thinitos claims to be the first to do so.
PunkScapes, an NFT banner homage to CryptoPunks
The last project defines PFBs. As soon as PunkScapes was established in September 2021, it observed the imbalance between banners and PFPs, and decided to act.
NFTs with banner-ready images total 10K. Furthermore, these NFTs are interactive and may be used as a banner on Twitter, Discord, or OpenSea. PunkScapes’ website and OpenSea’s marketplace both show off the pixelated cityscapes.
There is always a rise and fall in interest in non-PFP NFTs. These Twitter-friendly artworks might be worth a look, even though banner NFTs aren’t completely mainstream.
