5 reasons Local Contemporary & Digital Artists should Join NFTapir
Now, if you are an artist, we sure you heard about the artist’s new art form or platform – NFT. You must have heard the news about Grimes was getting millions of dollars for NFTs and Nyan Cat meme was being sold for $600,000.
You might have a few questions as we do. What’s the fudge about NFT? Okay, let us share with you the info we found from our research on the Internet :
WHAT IS AN NFT, AND WHAT DOES NFT STAND FOR?
TOO BASIC OF AN INFO? Let me elaborate further.
“Non-fungible” more or less means that it’s unique and can’t be substituted with something else. For example, an Ethereum is fungible — trade one for another Ethereum, and you’ll have precisely the same thing. A one-of-a-kind trading card, however, is non-fungible. If you traded it for a different card, you’d have something completely different. You gave up a Squirtle and got a 1909 T206 Honus Wagner, which StadiumTalk calls “the Mona Lisa of baseball cards.” (I’ll take their word for it.)
How do NFTs work?
Most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain at a very high level. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like bitcoin or dogecoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs, which store extra information that makes them work differently from an ETH coin. It is worth noting that other blockchains can implement their own versions of NFTs. Read more here at Immediate Code.
