Essentially, a non-fungible token, or NFT, is a financial security that is made up of digital data that is stored in a blockchain, which is a distributed ledger.
The ownership of NFTs is recorded on the blockchain, and they can be transferred by the owner, allowing them to be sold and traded.
NFTs can be created by anyone, and they require little or no coding skills.
NFTs typically contain references to digital files, such as images, videos, and audio. Unlike cryptocurrencies, which are fungible, NFTs are uniquely identifiable.
A digital file referenced by an NFT determines its market value.
From 2020 to 2021, trading of NFTs grew by 21,000%, topping $17 billion in 2021.
