What is an NFT?

An NFT ("Non-Fungible Token") is a digital asset that is verifiable on blockchain technology. Assets include artwork, music, or in-game assets such as unique avatars. Because they are unique, NFTs are becoming sought after as collectibles.

When something is fungible, like a dollar bill, it is equivalent to, and can thus be exchanged for, any other dollar bill. In contrast, a non-fungible token is a unique asset in digital form that cannot be exchanged for any other NFT. This means that every NFT is a 'one-of-a-kind' item. NFTs are transferred from one owner to another using blockchain technology, which creates a digital trail from seller to buyer that verifies the transaction. This encodes the unique ownership rights to the buyer (new owner). The physical world counterpart would be a unique collectible asset such as a piece of art, for which you might have a certificate of ownership attesting to its authenticity. The NFT with its blockchain technology replaces the need for certificates of ownership. There are even some NFTs that use blockchain technology to create a digital ownership certificate for a unique physical asset, though this is currently not common. NFTs became a popular investment in 2021, even though they’ve been around since 2014. As cryptocurrency investing exploded, so did the idea of ​​taking certain digital assets and selling them to investors to buy online.

What is an NFT?

An NFT (“Non-Fungible Token”) is a digital asset that is identifiable by blockchain technology. Assets include artwork, music, or in-game assets, such as unique avatars. Because they are unique, NFTs become sought-after collectibles.

When an object is fungible, such as a bank note, it is equivalent to any other bank note and can therefore be exchanged for it. In contrast, a non-fungible token is a unique asset in digital form that cannot be exchanged for any other NFT. This means that each NFT is a unique object. NFTs are transferred from one owner to another using blockchain technology, which creates a digital trail between the seller and buyer to verify the transaction. Unique property rights are thus encoded for the buyer (new owner).

The equivalent in the physical world would be a unique collectible such as a work of art, for which you could have a certificate of ownership attesting to its authenticity. Thanks to blockchain technology, the NFT makes any certificate of ownership unnecessary. There are even NFTs that use blockchain technology to create a digital certificate of ownership for a unique physical asset, although this is not currently common.

NFTs have become a popular investment in 2021, even though they have been around since 2014. With the explosion of cryptocurrency investments, the idea of ​​taking certain digital assets and selling them to investors to purchase online has also exploded.
