What is an NFT?
NFT stands for ‘non-fungible token’. Non-fungible means that something is unique and can’t be replaced. By contrast, physical money and cryptocurrencies are fungible, which means they can be traded or exchanged for one another. Every NFT contains a digital signature which makes each one unique. NFTs are digital assets and could be photos, videos, audio files, or another digital format. NFT examples include artwork, comic books, sports collectibles, trading cards, games, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are NFTs and how do they work?
NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token, a unique digital asset that represents ownership or proof of authenticity of a unique item or piece of content, like artwork or music. NFTs are stored on a blockchain, which is a secure ledger that tracks transactions and ownership records. Unlike traditional cryptocurrencies, NFTs cannot be divided into smaller units, and each is considered one-of-a-kind. NFTs allow artists and content creators to monetize their work, establish ownership, and provide buyers with proof of ownership and a unique item to collect. NFTs are changing the way we think about digital ownership and the value of digital assets by utilizing blockchain technology, offering transparency, security, and scarcity to the digital world.
Why are NFTs important for artists and collectors?
NFTs are a big deal for artists and collectors because they offer a new way to make money and prove ownership of digital creations. Artists can sell their work as one-of-a-kind assets, giving them control over their value and cutting out middlemen. For collectors, NFTs provide proof of ownership and authenticity, giving them a sense of pride and value in their collection. Plus, NFTs are stored on a blockchain, so they're secure and transparent, making it easy to buy, sell, and trade with confidence. All in all, NFTs are a game changer for the digital world, adding scarcity, security, and authenticity to the mix.

There are many different digital wallets available, and it’s important to choose one that is secure and compatible with the blockchain the NFT is stored on. Some popular digital wallets for NFTs include MetaMask, MyEtherWallet, and Gnosis Safe.
