What is NFT?

NFT stands for Non-fungible token, which is a unit of data on a blockchain digital ledger. In a word, it is a type of digital asset present on a digital chain (blockchain). This blockchain acts as a ledger that ensures the authenticity of both the assets and the owners.

Most of the content, digital objects in the past are infinitely reproducible. But with NFT it is different, each asset will have a unique digital signature and therefore it is unique. Each minted NFT token has a unique unique identifier and belongs to a unique owner. As a digital asset, NFTs are also often traded in cryptocurrencies, but sometimes also using USD.

Application of NFT in real life

NFT has been and is being applied most commonly in digital content such as music, pictures or other art content. For example, when an artist sells a painting as NFT, the buyer will have to pay and become the owner of it. Others can still see the painting, but only the buyer has official ownership.

NFT has limitless potential as it can exist in all types of digital objects: images, videos, audio, text or even a Twitter post. NFTs can also be pieces of land in virtual world environments, digital clothing or exclusive rights to use cryptocurrency wallets.

So what are the benefits that NFT brings? The tokenization of assets can bring significant benefits to both sellers and buyers. Because NFT assets can verify authenticity and clear ownership, transactions are also transparent, especially with works of art where authenticity is very important in determining value. Sellers themselves can also protect their intellectual property rights and enjoy the fruits of their labor more fairly.

Or like in the game world, if you buy items and characters in the form of NFT, then you are the 100% exclusive owner of it, no one can trespass. Not even the game publisher can delete your character or item.
