NFTs Explained! (perfectly by AWS)
NFT is an acronym which stands for “non-fungible token". The concept of fungibility refers to the ability for an asset to be exchanged equivalently with another asset of like kind. In contrast to fungible assets, non-fungible assets are valued differently based on their unique attributes and scarcity. NFTs are digital assets that can be purchased, sold, and even traded. They are designed to give you something that can't be copied: ownership of the work (though the artist can still retain the copyright and reproduction rights, just like with physical artwork). To put it in terms of physical art collecting: anyone can buy a Monet print. But only one person can own the original.
Speaking of ownership, how does The Hardrick Museum verify ownership?
NFTS are block-chain tokens executed via a smart contract. Smart contracts are the primary means by which developers can create and manage tokens on a blockchain. Smart contracts can store small amounts of data in common data structures, which is a critical component of tokenization use cases that map token identifiers to owner identifiers to track who owns which token.
Non-fungible tokens can be created to represent virtually any asset, whether physical, digital or metaphysical. However, the most common NFT assets are digital art, digital collectible items, pieces of content like video or audio, and event tickets.
“Artscapes are immersive environments; they can be anything you can imagine.”
