What is an NFT? (Crypto Beginners)

So I’m going to describe what an NFT is in the most basic terms as I can.

NFT stands for Non Fungible Token.

Fungible means something is able to be exchanged or substituted and will hold the same value. It’s interchangeable like the dollar, gold, casino chips, bitcoin, ethereum or frequent flyer loyalty points.

If I lend you 10 dollars cash and you return to me two 5 dollar bank notes, I’m fine with that because even though they are different, they hold the same total value.

So non-fungile obviously means it’s an asset that can’t be substituted. It has unique attributes that makes it different from something else in the same asset class. Like a painting, a theatre ticket, a house, a video game skin, a trademark or a CryptoKitty which was the first real use case to take off on the Ethereum blockchain in 2017.

Some of these assets are physical and tangible and others are digital and intangible.

So NFTs are non-fungible tokens. ‘Token’ refers to a digital certificate stored on a secure distributed database called a blockchain.

NFTs are digital assets. Publicly verifiable intellectual property authenticated on a blockchain.

A popular place to currently browse a variety of NFTs is on http://OpenSea.io

It’s an exciting space, I believe the NFT space will continue to grow in the coming years with some popular use cases being: Digital Art, Virtual Land, Gaming, Collectibles, Finance and much more.

I thought this was worth explaining because I think we’ll be talking a lot more about this in the coming years.

  1. When it comes to investing, we want our money to grow with the highest rates of return, and the lowest risk possible. While there are no shortcuts to getting rich, but there are smart ways to go about it

  2. ☝️☝️☝️☝️Thanks you very much for helping me out when I needed help. You probably helped more than you did, Thanks for the successful withdrawal of fund…….. all kudos to you sir

  3. Monero is fungible, bitcoin is not fungible and is pseudo anon.
    anyone that tells you otherwise is lying to you.

  4. 👆🏾👆🏾You change my life out of debt I feel so very reluctant at first time I read comments about him,I promise myself anywhere I came across him on YouTube here too. I will always emphasize on him about the good job and good heart.,txt him up everyone can't be the same

  5. Wow so someday stuff like collecting football cards will be ruined because we will just buy them online as things that don't actually exist in the real world. Will messages be sold as NFTs? Will there be desperate shops opening, attempting to "give the retro experience of opening ye olde TikTok and scrolling around all day"? Will sex be sold as an NFT?! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
