Are You Prepared for the New NFTs in Crypto-Economy With its Popularity Rising Fast
With blockchain and digital assets started to unfold rapidly and innovation continues to emerge at an accelerated pace. NFTs or non-fungible tokens are particularly intriguing developed in the world of crypto. In March 2021, the founder of Twitter has placed an autographed tweetup for sales as an NFT, and a few days later, the digital-only artwork was sold at Christie’s auction house for an astonishing $69 million. The winning bidder for the artwork will not be receiving any actual form of artwork but instead will be given an NFT only.
The NFT might difficult for one to understand at the first but it is an economic term of describing an asset that is comprised of the unit which can be easily interchanged where money is one example you can interchange on $20 bill for two $10 ones which will be the same value while when something is non-fungible, it can never be interchanged because there isn’t anything equivalent to it in terms of value. Where the non-fungible asset has properties that are so unique that they belong to an online one. For other examples would be original painting or genuine diamond where NFTs are the digital version of a non-fungible asset because they can be brought and sold like other physical possession but they don’t actually have any tangible form of their own.
A non-fungible token is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger or a blockchain where the majority of NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain where Ethereum is a cryptocurrency but its blockchain have the facilities required to support these NFTs alongside additional data with distinguishes them from an actual Ethereium coin in terms of attributes and function.
As with cryptocurrencies, a record of the seller, the recipient, and the transaction’s value is then recorded on a blockchain. So a digital file itself is infinitely reproducible, but its NFT is recorded and tracked within its underlying blockchain and provides those who own it with proof of ownership of the NFT. NFTs are secure because there is no way that the records on a blockchain can be forged. Interestingly, NFTs can also come with a smart contract wherein the artists will receive a commission from any future sales of the token.
