At a very high level, most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like bitcoin or dogecoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs, which store extra information that makes them work differently from an Ethereum coin ($ETH). It is worth noting that other blockchains have their own versions of NFTs.
Non-fungible tokens, often referred to as NFTs, are blockchain-based tokens that each represent a unique asset like a piece of art, digital content, or media. An NFT can also be defined as an irrevocable digital certificate of ownership and authenticity for a given asset, whether digital or physical.
NFTs can really be anything digital (such as paintings, music, domain names, videos, GIFs or your brain downloaded and turned into an AI), but a lot of the current excitement is around using the tech to sell digital art. Nonetheless, NFTs are constantly evolving and appear to present more utilities and use cases beyond the speculative and financial benefits.
On the Inside Blockchain show today, Karla Obakpolor Founder/CEO of two tech startups; Qlip and Crypto Smart, joins us to explore and unravel the value and utility that can be derived from NFTs.
