NFTs as collateral — PART 2
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, have been a welcome addition to the cryptocurrency world. NFTs make tokenizing real and digital assets straightforward, resulting in a thriving new ecosystem of market players who can trade art, music, in-game items, and other items.
As we discussed in our previous piece, the use of NFTs as loan collateral has opened up a whole new world for those who rely on a secondary source to get financial resources. Now that we’re aware of NFTs’ latent power, let’s look at how they can be used as an investment in and of themselves, potentially replacing gold and the stock market in the coming years. We’ll go through how to invest in NFTs and the benefits of doing so in this article.
Investing in NFTs
“On a blockchain, NFTs are pieces of information displayed dynamically with graphic display,” says Nick Donaraski, CEO of ORE System’s blockchain technology. If you buy an NFT early, your ownership rights are limited, and you can only use it if you are the owner. This scarcity, according to Donaraski, is what causes the NFT’s value to rise over time.
To start investing in NFT, you should do the following.
Make a Wallet for Your Digital Assets
You’ll need a standalone digital wallet to store NFTs, most likely one that accepts Ethereum. Your crypto wallet might be either software or a hardware device you keep in person. Hardware wallets are more secure, while software wallets are more convenient. Read our article to know how to keep your crypto wallets secure.
Choose which NFTs to purchase:
You can browse NFT marketplaces online to find the NFT you wish to buy. You will probably come across various photographs, short videos, and original artworks. Many NFTs are sold as sets or collections, with individual NFTs costing free to millions of dollars. 8 Choose an NFT that you think will be entertaining and profitable.
Finish the First Transaction
You must first link your digital wallet to the marketplace where the NFT is posted before you may purchase it. Before you can make a purchase, you may need to create an account with the NFT exchange.
- Anyone can invest in NFTs: Tokenized assets can be purchased by anyone. Asset ownership tokenized into the NFT can be transferred easily and efficiently between persons worldwide.
- A blockchain protects the ownership of NFTs: The use of blockchain technology to digitally signify ownership can increase the security of the investor’s asset ownership. The use of blockchain technology can also help to make asset ownership more transparent.
- Opportunity to learn about blockchain technology: Investors can better understand blockchain technology while diversifying their portfolios by allocating a sum to tokenized assets.
- NFTs are not the asset class: NFTs are frequently misunderstood as an asset class rather than a technology method of indicating ownership. The hype and general misunderstanding around NFTs can lead tokenized asset values to be inflated and erratic.
- Most NFTs are now supported by the Ethereum blockchain, which uses an energy-intensive operational procedure called proof of work to generate them. A single NFT transaction consumes enough energy to power a typical home for nearly a day and a half.
- Because most NFT purchases take place on the Ethereum platform, having the blockchain’s native currency, Ether (ETH), is frequently required to purchase the NFT. Investors who want to acquire the NFTs with fiat currency, such as the US dollar, may be limited in their alternatives.
Platforms available for transacting NFTs:
- NFT stars
- WazirX NFT
NFTs offer advantages and disadvantages, but investing in any asset simply because it is tokenized is bad. Whether a blockchain shows an asset’s ownership, the investment principles remain the same. As an investor, your greatest move is to select high-quality assets you want to hold and do whatever it takes to get NFTs.
