NFT is a three-letter acronym that is currently on everyone’s lips. But do you know what it actually is or what it is all about? Let’s dive deep into the realm of art, how it functions, and how it’s applied.
HOW IT WORKS
A nonfungible token (NFT) is a form of cryptographic asset that is one-of-a-kind and used to create and verify digital asset ownership.
Cartoons, music, film and video clips, JPEGs, postcards, sports trading cards, and virtual real estate or pets are just some of the examples.
NFTs create a secure record that is imprinted with a unique identifier code that is saved on the blockchain.
Non-fungible tokens are tokens that are unique and one of a kind, as opposed to fungible tokens like Bitcoin or fiat currencies like the euro or the dollar.
Fungibility is a term used in the financial industry to describe two indistinguishable units of value. Two euro coins, for example, are fungible since they have the same value. Bitcoins are fungible assets and so are many other assets.
HOW IT IS USED
NFTs is used in a completely different manner. They are nonfungible tokens, which means they are one-of-a-kind. NFTs are nonreplicable, hence their value is determined by their scarcity.
A digital identifying number acts as a certificate of authenticity for each of these non-fungible tokens.
This is accomplished via blockchain technology, which is also used to record transactions for all crypto-currencies on the market, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
