Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are the latest trend in the crypto space, and their popularity is only growing as more people realize their potential. This article will explore what they are, why they’re useful, and what to look for when investing in them. Keep reading as we delve into 8 interesting facts you should know about Non-Fungible Tokens!
1. NFT Is Disrupting Industries Left & Right
Non-Fungible Tokens are rapidly gaining traction across a wide range of industries due to their unique properties that can drastically improve existing services and businesses. For example, in the gaming industry, we’ve recently seen the meteoric rise in Cryptokitties sales and players, which smashed Ethereum’s previous daily transaction records. Beyond games, NFTs are revolutionizing the digital art industry as we know it, and even NFT fashion is growing rapidly. With their immutable transaction records and tokenization capabilities, blockchain technology is allowing for a whole new way to distribute and monetize digital art. Artists can now sell an “original” work of art only once by transferring ownership of that piece to the buyer via a smart contract (the original artwork remains unchanged), which makes it possible to verify authenticity and provenance. So if you see an NFT fashion piece, such as a coat or scarf, for example (like the ones seen in the picture above), you can rest assured that it’s one of a kind!
2. Unique Possibilities
The possibilities enabled by NFTs are vast, and their use cases continue to expand thanks to forward-thinking developers who are making it easier than ever before to create and interact with them. As we mentioned in our previous blog post, we’re seeing an explosion of creativity from developers who want to create new experiences using NFTs. Additionally, because each NFT is unique, they offer endless utility beyond basic tokenization capabilities. For example:
- Registered art collectors can keep their art collection as a single digital asset on the blockchain, where it can be accessed and enjoyed by all.
- Artists can track their work’s authenticity and easily prove that they’re the original creator to potential buyers or museums if they want to sell their piece.
- Authors can distribute limited edition copies of a book that are automatically tracked for provenance and authenticity, which eliminates the need for third-party authentication services.
3. NFTs Are A Wise Investment
The future is looking bright for Non-Fungible Tokens thanks to influencers and NFT creators who are pushing NFTs more and more into the crypto space. If you’re lucky, you can buy an NFT for under 1000 dollars, and sell it for tens of thousands of dollars. You just need to be patient and invest wisely.
4. NFTs Create New Opportunities
By tokenizing these unique assets, they can be more easily traded and exchanged across the web. This means that for the first time, your NFT digital art collection could sell for real-world value. For example: If you had a digital painting of three whales on a dead tree floating in the ocean worth $100 bucks and someone else had one of those same paintings but with two whales, well your painting would now be worth double what theirs is! The possibilities are endless when it comes to sharing NFT digital assets across different games or within social networks… all at virtually no cost!
5. Build Your Own Decentralized Art Gallery
One thing we’re experimenting with at Decentraland is creating a virtual art gallery that lets our users buy and sell unique pieces of NFT digital art. You can see an example of what we’re working on below – this is just one of the many things to come as we continue to expand the Decentraland ecosystem.
6. Know What You’re Getting
When it comes time for you to invest in Non-Fungible Tokens, there are a few questions you should ask yourself first. Is it secure? How easy is it to use and interact with? What do other people say about it? These are important things to keep in mind when deciding which tokens deserve your hard-earned money! Luckily, we’ve done some digging and found that NFTs mostly score high across the board in terms of being secure, interactive, and having a lot of positive feedback from other people who have used them.
7. What to Look for When Investing
When it comes time for you to invest in Non-Fungible Tokens, there are a few specific things we recommend looking at before making your final decision. Does the token have proof of use case? How scarce is it (or will its supply stay relatively low)? Will there be inflation? How does it compare to others like it? These questions can help guide your investment strategy and keep you safe from potential pitfalls! NFTs are unique in the sense that they are attached to a specific digital asset, which is defined by its ID. If you have this ID, you can find all information available about that specific asset on any decentralized exchange or blockchain. If there is no connection between the NFT and the virtual world, it means that an artist can create one without worrying about other projects using their ideas. This does not affect the artists’ rights at all because each piece of art has its own identity. The same thing applies to authors who can publish limited editions of their work by writing them into Ethereum’s blockchain through non-fungible tokens.
8. The Future of NFTs is Bright!
The future of Non-Fungible Tokens looks bright as new use cases continue to emerge, and more people catch on to the idea that each token is unique. It’s exciting to see how quickly these tokens have grown in popularity over the last year, and we’re excited to be a part of it all by creating a virtual world where users can buy and sell these tokens with ease.
NFTs are a budding new trend in the crypto space that stands to revolutionize how we think about and interact with digital assets. With projects like ours at Decentraland, which is already allowing users to buy and sell unique digital art using NFT tokens, these sorts of assets can be used for more than just trading or making money – they can finally provide actual utility by opening up new possibilities within online worlds!
