What are NFTs?

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), shortened as NFTs, are a type of digital asset (like artwork, music art, and even virtual real estate) that is created and built on the Blockchain and can be exchanged for fiat currency or other crypto assets.

Any digital asset can be converted into NFTs. For instance, a popular tweet, Instagram post, or Facebook post can be converted to NFTs and sold for profit.

The Blockchain technology on which NFTs are built is used to monitor their ownership and transfer from one wallet to another.

Unlike cryptocurrency, NFTs cannot be duplicated, meaning they cannot be measured into units of ownership.
