NFT and Its Rise

NFT’s (Non-Fungible Tokens) are, in essence, collectible digital assets, which hold value as a form of art or culture. These digital assets, which are unique and indivisible, can be bought, sold, stored, and exchanged on a blockchain. Indivisible means we can not buy half or some of the NFT like Fungible tokens.

Here we have some NFTs sold recently.

1. Everydays: the First 5000 Days ($69.3 million)

“Everydays — The First 5000 Days” is a JPG file that contains a collage of images created by Beeple, a single picture is usually sold at auction, but here you’ll find almost everything the artist has made since he began displaying his work online in 2007.

2. CryptoPunk #7804 ($7.57 Million)

The Punk #7804 is another Alien, and this time it comes with a pair of small shades, a smoking pipe with a few clouds of smoke rising out of it, and a front-facing cap, 378 punks come with Pipe, and 317 punks come with small shades. Aliens, Apes, and Zombies are among the uncommon CryptoPunks, in addition to the regular CryptoPunks.

3. Crossroads ($6.6 Million)

The artwork is based on the presidential election in 2020. The artist created two versions of this, one for if Trump wins and the other for if Trump loses. And the video would vary depending on the election results.

This means that the blockchain needs to enable its users to create unique tokens in order to offer them. Someone without extensive knowledge of the cryptocurrency industry could create their own NFT which has a unique identifier that proves ownership of a digital item.

These cryptographic tokens are perfect for digital art, but there are many other sectors betting on this technology

Collections: Similar to trading cards, but in digital format. A one of a kind Cristiano Ronaldo NFT has been sold for $290,000 on the fantasy soccer game Sorare.

The Cristiano Ronaldo NFT overtakes the value of an NFT card of a LeBron James on the NBA Top Shot platform sold for $208,000.


Games: NFTs can be used to represent assets in video games, such as a house, a terrain, or virtual food, which are owned by the player.
