NFT (Non-Fungible Token)

Discover NFTs - the future of digital ownership. Learn how non-fungible tokens revolutionize the way we buy, sell, and collect digital assets.

NFTs are unique digital assets stored on the blockchain. Each NFT has distinct traits and holds data about its owner, transaction history, and metadata. One of the essential traits of the blockchain is the irrevocability of data stored globally, not on a single server.

How NFTs Work

An NFT owner holds rights to a specific digital item, certifying its originality, akin to an authenticity certificate.

NFTs are built on blockchains, which are distributed and unchangeable ledgers.The process of creating and managing NFTs involves:

1. Crafting a unique digital asset, be it an image, music, video, text, or code.

2. Wrapping it in NFT format via a smart contract on a blockchain, often Ethereum.

3. Smart Contracts These execute on blockchains, defining NFT creation, ownership, and transfer rules. NFT metadata (e.g., description, authorship) is set within the contract.

4. Metadata Stored in the smart contract or a JSON database, metadata includes title, description, creation date, enhancing uniqueness and value.

5. Mining and Confirmation NFT blockchains use Proof of Work/Stake for transaction confirmation. Creating/transferring NFTs involves a confirmed blockchain network transaction.

6. Storage and Ownership NFTs are stored on the blockchain, and visible to owners and participants. Owners manage, transfer, and sell NFTs on specialized platforms.

7. Trading and Sales NFT platforms facilitate trading/selling. Users list NFTs, set prices, and await buyers. Smart contracts handle transactions, transferring ownership upon sale.

8. History and Confirmation Blockchain records all NFT events, guaranteeing unchangeable transparency. This secures asset ownership history.

In short, NFTs allow crafting, transferring, and owning unique digital assets via blockchain and smart contracts. This empowers artists, musicians, gamers, and diverse creative domains.
