All About NFTs

01 What are NFTs?

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are digital assets stored on a blockchain. These can be compared to a physical collector’s item, which is now digital. This means it is an indivisible, unique crypto asset. As a crypto collectible, its non-fungibility ensures it cannot be mutually exchanged for value. This implies it is not equivalent or similar to another NFT. While it can be bought and sold on an open marketplace, no two NFTs are identical or interchangeable. This makes NFTs distinct from cryptocurrencies.

02 What gives value to NFTs?

The value comes from the uniqueness and exclusive nature of NFTs and the blockchain technology that powers them. NFTs are also used as digital tokens representative of actual artwork and real-estate. This enables people to buy and sell NFTs representing tangible assets, while reducing the probability of fraud. NFTs are also used to tokenize identities and property ownerships, adding to their value.

03 Why are some NFTs so costly?

The uniqueness and the immutable proof of ownership makes each NFT exclusive and non-interchangeable. Such exclusivity can generate great demand in the market, which can drive up the price of an NFT.

04 What is minting an NFT?

When you convert a digital file into a crypto asset and store it on a blockchain, it is known as minting an NFT. Once minted, the particular digital item will exist on a blockchain, which will make it an immutable crypto collectible.

05 Why should I mint an NFT?

06 What do you mean by an NFT drop?

10 How is the price of an NFT decided?

NFTs are sold via online auctions.
