A non-fungible token (NFT) is a type of digital token that represents ownership or proof of authenticity of a unique item or piece of digital content, using blockchain technology. Unlike cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum, which are fungible and can be exchanged on a one-to-one basis, NFTs are one-of-a-kind and cannot be replaced or exchanged on an equal basis. NFTs have gained popularity in the art, music, and collectibles spaces, allowing creators to sell digital assets or property rights directly to buyers, providing a secure and transparent way to verify ownership and provenance.

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a type of cryptographic token that represents ownership or proof of authenticity of a unique item or piece of content, such as digital art, music, videos, virtual real estate, collectibles, or even physical assets. Unlike cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum, NFTs are indivisible and cannot be exchanged on a one-to-one basis since each token has distinct attributes or properties that differentiate it from others. NFTs utilize blockchain technology, typically running on Ethereum, to record and verify transactions, ensuring the scarcity, provenance, and ownership of the digital assets they represent. This technology provides creators and collectors a way to establish verifiable ownership and value for digital assets in the digital realm. NFTs have gained significant popularity in recent years due to their potential for creating a marketplace for unique digital assets and collectibles.
