If you’ve been to any corner of the internet recently, you would have heard about something called an NFT.
And if you haven’t heard about NFTs yet, you’re about to find out!
NFT stands for ‘non-fungible token’ and are cryptographic assets that exist on a blockchain. Each NFT consists of unique identification codes and metadata that distinguish them from each other. As a result, NFTs can be used as a medium for commercial transactions. NFTs can be anything that takes a digital form, like an image or video.
For artists, this is a novel way to sell any kind of digital art that there otherwise might not be much of a market for. For example, NFTs have a feature that ensures you are paid a percentage every time the NFT is sold or changes hands, making sure that if your work gets popular, you’ll be credited.
