So, let’s start the journey of the NFTs,
What are NFT’s?
NFT stands for NON – FUNGILBE – TOKENS, which means a unique and a non – interchangeable unit of data that is stored in a digital form using blockchain technology (Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system) to establish proof of ownership. In simple words, NFT’s are collectable digital assets that hold value; as a physical antique artefact does, so do NFT’s.
NFT’s are a lot like cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum However, NFT’s are unique. They cannot be duplicated, and they can’t be exchanged for like–for–like; this is where non–fungible makes sense. Any reproduced or made file can be stored as NFT’s to identify as an original copy.
How do they work?
The unique identity and ownership of NFT’s are verifiable via a blockchain ledger. NFT’s were based on Ethereum blockchain, and they are also available on Solona, FLOW, Bitcoin cash blockchains. NFT’s can be anything such as photographs, music, tweets, images, Gif’s, memes, checks, and many more in digital assets. The NFT, which identifies its ownership, can be bought and sold like other art; as the physical art change its price, NFT’s also changed as per the market demand.
If you have wandered around an art gallery or a gift shop, you might see the replicas of various famous paintings or masterpieces; well, some of the NFT’s act the same There are parts of the blockchain that are valid, but they wouldn’t hold the same value as the original. NFTs will most likely come with a license to the digital asset it points to, but this doesn’t automatically confer copyright ownership. The copyright owner may reproduce work, and the NFT owner gains no royalties.
How can you invest in them?
As we know, NFT’s are getting hyped, and many people are making millions by investing in them; you can also start purchasing and selling NFT’s without any fear of getting hacked. And don’t go thinking you’ve hacked the system by right-clicking and saving the image of an NFT. That won’t make you a millionaire because your downloaded file won’t hold the information that makes it part of the blockchain and identifies the file as the original.
Suppose you investigate buying the NFT’s you can do so by entering a platform and choosing which NFT you want to purchase, as NFT works on the blockchain. In that case, you will need to purchase it using Cryptocurrencies; every platform uses different blockchains, such as Ethereum, Solona and many more. You will first need to acquire a crypto coin as much you want, and with that coin, you can purchase NFT’s. You can directly buy the NFT, or else you can also Auction it, and the most significant bid may win the NFT.
Some of the NFTs also are in collections, such as Crypto punks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Veefriends and many more, which can be purchased. These collections contain many thousands of NFT’s in the form of JPG or GIF as their group is all about; the collection also includes a larger community, making the NFT sell more expensive.
