Frequently Asked Questions

What’s an NFT?

A NFT (non-fungible token) more or less means that it’s a one-of-a-kind digital item and can’t be replaced with something else. It can be an image file, a song, a tweet, and various other digital formats that users can buy, own, and trade.

This basically means that when someone owns a digital file (and that it’s marked with code to differentiate it from any digital replicas) they possess a proof of ownership that could also give them access to things like special events or access to celebrities. Think of it as a golden ticket.
