What Is A Non-Fungible Token (NFT)

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a digital asset that represents real-world objects like art, music, in-game items, and videos. They are purchased and sold online, frequently with cryptocurrency, and they are generally encoded with the same underlying software as many digital currencies.

Although they’ve been around since 2014, NFTs are just becoming a popular way to buy and sell digital artwork, bringing lots of celebrities across the world into the crypto industry. They are also generally one of a kind with their unique identifying codes.

NFTs are different from cryptocurrencies because each has a digital signature that makes it impossible for them to be exchanged for or equal to one another, which is why they are referred to as non-fungible.

They also get exclusive ownership rights. NFTs can have only one owner at a time, and their use of blockchain technology makes it easy to verify ownership and transfer tokens between owners. The creator can also store specific information in an NFT’s metadata. For instance, artists can sign their artwork by including their signature in the file.
