NFT ETF products such as NFTx and NFT20 create baskets of NFTs that have an associated derivative token. Mechanically: input an NFT and get one token out; input one token and get one random NFT out. The trading price of the derivative token establishes a floor price for the NFTs. But not all NFTs are worth the same. Frequently there are more valuable NFTs in the pool, so the question is - how can this surplus value be extracted?
