3 min readFeb 28, 2024


We delved into the our recent exploration, the book: "The Everything Token: How NFTs and Web3 Will Transform the Way We Buy, Sell, and Create," and figured out transformative power of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) not just for the digital art world but for businesses large and small. As national and international brands increasingly incorporate NFTs into consumer campaigns, the potential for local businesses to leverage this technology to engage their communities is immense. Our mission? To ensure no one is left behind in this digital revolution.

To navigate this new terrain, we introduce a comprehensive framework tailored for everyone from startup enthusiasts to executives of sprawling enterprises—the NFT Staircase. This five-step approach is designed to help businesses of all sizes harness the full potential of NFTs.

Step 1: Ownership

Ownership is the cornerstone of the web3 philosophy, and NFTs are at its forefront. By establishing unequivocal ownership of digital assets — ranging from images and game items to event tickets and even health data — NFTs empower individuals and businesses alike. This new paradigm of ownership not only fosters markets for previously intangible goods but also enhances users' control and psychological ownership over their digital assets.

Step 2: Utility

Utility extends the value of NFTs beyond mere ownership. Whether it's access to exclusive events, in-game enhancements, or membership in a community, the functionality of NFTs can grow and evolve over time. This adaptability, coupled with the ease of adding new functionalities by creators and third parties alike, enriches the user experience and strengthens brand attachment.

Step 3: Identity

Through the combination of ownership and utility, NFT holders begin to derive personal value and identity from their tokens. This sense of identity is amplified by the interoperability of NFTs, allowing for seamless integration into various digital spaces. PFP (profile picture) NFTs, in particular, have surged in popularity as a means for users to express their identities and connect with like-minded individuals.

Step 4: Community

NFTs inherently link holders into a network of shared interests, creating a powerful community around a brand or cause. This network effect shifts the value to the asset rather than the platform, enabling a more direct and meaningful connection between brands and their supporters. Communities formed around NFTs can influence brand direction, creating a dynamic interaction that benefits both the brand and its community.

Step 5: Evolution

The culmination of ownership, utility, identity, and community through NFTs presents a robust framework for digital brand building. This evolutionary step transforms consumer interactions into rich, multifaceted community experiences, laying the groundwork for NFTs to permeate both online and offline worlds.

In sum, NFTs offer an unprecedented opportunity to revolutionize how businesses interact with their customers, manage assets, and build communities. As we ascend the NFT Staircase, we envision a future where NFTs are integral to business strategies, driving innovation, and fostering deeper, more meaningful connections.

As we conclude, NFTs are set to redefine the landscape of customer loyalty programs, personal data management, and community building. By turning everyday interactions into opportunities for engagement and community formation, NFTs herald a new era of business-consumer relationships. Join us in embracing the future, where NFTs transform the mundane into the extraordinary.
