But before we start, let’s quickly see what a Non-Funglibe Token or NFT really is.

Token (NFT): What It Means

A Non-Fungible Token or NFT is a digital item on a blockchain system. NFTs are unique, meaning there’s only one single version of each NFT with that specific feature in the world. The term “Non-Fungible” is the technical term for this, which simply means: each NFT is unique!

To make things more clear, let’s talk about a familiar Fungible asset to see how it’s different from the non-fungible ones: Money. There’s no difference between two $1 bills.
They are both worth $1 and you can use either to buy a cup of coffee. But one NFT is not the same as another NFT. Each NFT has its own features so they have different values. You may be able to exchange one NFT with 1 cup of coffee, and the other with a house!

Beeple’s digital art is one the most expensive NFTs ever sold. “Everydays: the First 5000 Days” was sold for $69 million at Christie’s. He put together 5000 pieces of his work to create this masterpiece.
