NFTs: What are they and how can you create them?

NFT or Non-Fungible Tokens are cryptocurrency assets that represent a wide range of unique objects, both physical and virtual as real estate or digital art. NFTs are unique – like real works of art, NFT uses the blockchain to identify its authenticity, so you can tell the difference between a replica or a replica. They are essentially blockchain entries and allow collectors to have a digital collection where everything can be traced to their original publisher. CryptoPunks and CryptoKitties are the two most popular NFTs.

NFTs provide a certificate of ownership of digital material for the buyer, which also protects its value for future transactions. A report by Coindesk states that artists can sell their art digitally to a global audience that will allow them to not only get a bigger cut in profit but program realms as well. Gamers can also become owners of in-game products and even earn money from them. It states that most NFT tokens were built using two Ethereum token standards – ERC-721 and ERC-1155.

Partner Elon Musk Grimes recently sold digital art as NFTs, earning $ 6 million (approximately Rs. 43.76 crores) selling short images and videos, which have garnered a lot of market attention.
