Overview

Short History to rewind emerging crypto world, 2017-18 Initial Coin Offering [ICO], 2018-19 Ethereum Smart Contract, 2019-20 Stablecoins, and 2020-21 DeFi. Now it’s 2021 & in the recent month, you have seen the waves of Non-Fungible Tokens [NFT] towards the Moon 🚀 Let’s dive & try to understand what is NFTs.

What are NFT tokens

Firstly NFT stands for the Non-Fungible Token, the asset that cannot substitute with other assets. This unique attribute makes it different from the other class of digital assets. Like Painting, Real estate Trademark, or Cryptokitties. While Fungible tokens can substitute. Like Bitcoin, Gold, or Currency. Where Tokens refer to the digital certificate that is stored securely on the blockchain.

NFT tokens developed on the Ethereum standard of ERC-721 & ERC-1155 & that can be publicly verifiable & authenticated on the blockchain.

Why NFTs Worth

NFTs esteem boosts the same as Bitcoin – there is a finite number of tokens & it can’t replicate. The technical sense that every NFT is a unique token on the blockchain & plays a vital role in the rise of NFT. The NFT tokens are easily verifiable and can always trace back to the original creator.

Owners of NFT tokens can fully possess the individual digital assets & the tokens exist solely on their native platform. NFT tokens from one platform can’t move to another platform nor be destroyed, deleted, or duplicated.
