What is an NFT? (Crypto Beginners)



So I’m going to describe what an NFT is in the most basic terms as I can.

NFT stands for Non Fungible Token.

Fungible means something is able to be exchanged or substituted and will hold the same value. It’s interchangeable like the dollar, gold, casino chips, bitcoin, ethereum or frequent flyer loyalty points.


Clickbank Promo Tools

If I lend you 10 dollars cash and you return to me two 5 dollar bank notes, I’m fine with that because even though they are different, they hold the same total value.

So non-fungile obviously means it’s an asset that can’t be substituted. It has unique attributes that makes it different from something else in the same asset class. Like a painting, a theatre ticket, a house, a video game skin, a trademark or a CryptoKitty which was the first real use case to take off on the Ethereum blockchain in 2017.

Some of these assets are physical and tangible and others are digital and intangible.

So NFTs are non-fungible tokens. ‘Token’ refers to a digital certificate stored on a secure distributed database called a blockchain.

NFTs are digital assets. Publicly verifiable intellectual property authenticated on a blockchain.

A popular place to currently browse a variety of NFTs is on

It’s an exciting space, I believe the NFT space will continue to grow in the coming years with some popular use cases being: Digital Art, Virtual Land, Gaming, Collectibles, Finance and much more.

I thought this was worth explaining because I think we’ll be talking a lot more about this in the coming years.

    The problem of NFT's is ownership, you never own the NFT like buying from the store and you can only use it in the store itself. LTO network presents NFT2.0. They solve with the hybrid structure the problem of the current NFT's.

    A video game skin. yeah, nobody else can use my same skin…

    Hey look, I made an image, but I added a random bit to it. It’s different. NFT’s make ZERO sense and it’s just a buzzword to make people give their money to those willing to be horrible human beings.

    NEXT UP, NFT VIDEO GAMES!!! YOU OWN THE LIMITED EDITION NFT COPY OF FORTNITE++, EVEN THOUGH FORTNITE REGULAR IS THE SAME THING! But wait, you have random bits associated with your copy, you’re special! Yes, if you fell for that shit, you are special.

    I’ve been hearing about NFT’s for a while now but dreading (for some reason) taking the time to learn about it all. I’m a millennial it should just click…lol kidding. it’s all very intriguing and I have a sense that acting on it early will be very beneficial. I still have a lot of questions. For one, why would just anyone want to buy an NFT ? Is there a target audience/consumer-base? Is this a hint of a societal transition to web images(or whatever) some day not being available (for free) on the web?

    So if NFTs are non-fungible then how do we exchange them for currencies such as money or, in case of the popular digital NFTs at the moment, digital drawings?

    I know that Beeple said that he does have some original works of art that he draw freehand in the beginning. Can I upload drawings and paintings that I've done in the past that were done with pencil and actual paint? Just getting into this, so I'm learning.
