What Is an NFT? How Non-Fungible Tokens Work

Non-fungible tokens (NFT’s), also known as a “crypto collectibles”, are a new type of cryptoeconomic mechanism that allow for the creation of unique assets on top another blockchain. These NFTs usually come into existence using smart contracts, which operate in accordance with programmed rules set out by investors when they purchase these items – this means everyone who owns an NFC chipcard has exactly same rights but it also ensures there’ll be no problem if someone wants to trade their token back at any time!

NFT’s are also a new way for gamers and enthusiasts to create their own unique items in video games. With NFTs, developers don’t need expensive programming tools because smart contracts allow users without technical knowledge make virtual goods from scratch! The potential applications seem endless because you could use these tokens not just within gaming but also Wall Street or even land ownership!

However, unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable. Each token represents an underlying asset and thus may have varying values for each tokenized item created by blockchain technology, making them much more similar to traditional collectibles than cryptocurrency is likely to ever be!  It’s important to remember however, that this isn’t fungible like traditional currencies because there can only ever be one specific item with the same worth as another (for example: all bitcoins are equal but each may represent something different).

In effect, the output should read something along the lines of: “Unlike most types of currency that can be copy/pasted into another wallet without changing their status – even if you were lucky enough get caught pasting over some old transaction history-, with these Collectible Cryptocurrencies there’s always something special about owning physical objects.”
