What is NFT?

Have you ever wondered what a blockchain blowup looks like? Well, I am sure it makes you go “WHAT…. Just happened there?” so here’s what happened, Non-Fungible Tokens aka NFTs took over the entire marketplace like a gangster! As the name very well suggests, these are one of a kind currency tokens which, if traded for, will bring you something of exact different value. If I put this in simple words, bitcoins can be traded for bitcoins but NFTs are to be traded for even better assets.

Interesting right? This is not it. NFTs are digital gadgets created on a blockchain—regularly used to certify specific possession of a virtual asset that would be some thing from art, music, games, to sports activities buying and selling cards. The NFT marketplace has existed for a few years for the reason that invention of blockchain, but these days stuck the eye of mainstream investors as a few high-profile collectibles have been offered at record-breaking prices.

NFT Junkies – Earning through Crypto

NFT marketplaces are not only for business tycoons but also a platform for artists. Talking about art, have you heard what Grimes did a couple of days ago? LOL, not wanting to sound like the aunt in your neighbourhood, but who does not like gossips? Grimes is an artist who sold a series of 10 pieces of artwork for $6 million in an auction in an NFT marketplace. Shocking! I know right! Not that her work wasn’t worth 6 million, because duh! but it’s art, download it from any platform. 2021 after all! There’s one more thing you are missing. It’s not just about the digital masterpiece, it’s also about the ownership!

It is not only about the ownership of digital pictures. CryptoKitties, an NFT game that rose towards popularity overnight was about purchasing, breeding, collecting and selling virtual cats. This blockchain game was developed on Ethereum by the Canadian studio Dapper Labs. Each CryptoKitty differed from another, making it an amazing Non-Fungible Token, first selling price of these virtual cats being ETH 249.9255. Which measures to $117,712 max. All the ownership authenticity of CryptoKitties are tracked via smart contracts on the Ethereum Blockchain.

Smart Contracts are commands saved for the working of a settlement via predetermined actions. They run for the execution of an agreement automatically helping in less time consumption and making sure that each member may be at once sure of the consequences, with no share of any mediator interfering.

Forming smart contracts can always be a bit of a task. They are written in a code on a specific blockchain. These virtual contract commands are not executed by individuals but by a web of computers when all the predetermined activities are confirmed.

Where the value of NFT comes from?

Understanding NFT market value a little better

The problem is that perceptions of what the client is purchasing aren’t without problems framed in felony terms. NFT marketplaces do now no longer usually appropriately describe the price proposition of the products they’re selling. The fact is that the price of any NFT is speculative. Its price is decided via way of means of what a person else is inclined to pay for it and not anything else.

Turning some thing as ephemeral as a tweet into an object that may be bought calls for things: making it specific and proving ownership. The system is the identical for cryptocurrencies, which flip strings of bits into digital cash which have real-global price. It boils right all the way down to cryptography.

How do NFTs work?

How does this blockchain work? After going through so many details of its working, here’s what I found out. Sellers display their pieces (digital) and make auctions for people to buy them. According to the tradition living on for years, the highest bidder wins! That’s all? Of course not! NFT provides not only great deals but Oh, so many more perks! Let’s list a few.

  • For sellers –
    For sellers, it not only supports and encourage artists to participate and earn from their passion, it also has a feature that as many times as their piece changes hands, they get a particular percentage of the total cost. You sell once, and earn for a lifetime! Sounds cool right? Thinking of investing already? I have more for you, what if I tell you if your work finds fame, there are even more benefits that NFTs provide. You can always call for your copyrights and your name never really leaves the masterpiece and a lot more!
  • For buyers –
    For buyers, no please, stop bragging about your ownership for that great work of art. There’s a lot more to brag about! Getting started from reselling what you buy for an even higher price because baby, now we own it! How about displaying it in a platform where you think it might gain more fame, oh and more gossip! How about letting the world use it and, on every download, you earn! You know where I am getting with this right?

To conclude –

Today’s NFT hype guarantees a prominent future for this blockchain outbreak, rising it to worth more than millions of dollars. This E-marketplace is fresh to carry out an endeavor.
