A quick introduction to NFT:
What is an NFT?
NFT, the acronym
of Non-fungible Token, is a special protocol created on the blockchain. Two bitcoins are generally
interchangeable as they share the same properties and prices. Therefore, a Bitcoin is also called a
"fungible token". While NFTs, as each is unique, indivisible, and irreplaceable, are called
“non-fungible tokens” or “non-homogeneous tokens”.
Ethereum ERC-20 tokens, NFTs are mainly derived from ERC-721 and ERC-1155 protocols. The major difference is
that the former can only generate NFTs, while their amount is defined by the latter. Since NFTs are created
on the blockchain, they are naturally decentralized, tamper-proof, open, transparent, and traceable.
Why do we need NFTs?
In the field of
traditional art and rare products, transaction vouchers are normally stored in centralized databases or
paper certificates. These vouchers are less authoritative and at risk of being reduplicated or tampered
with. However, NFTs can be considered as a transaction certificate recorded on the blockchain to prove
ownership and record price discovery of all transactions and have certain investment properties. NFTs have
been used in popular marketplaces such as game props, electronic tickets, collectibles, music, encrypted
art, etc., creating a phenomenon of "NFTs for everything".
A common feature
these marketplaces share is that valuable things enjoy irreplaceable otherness, which makes it perfectly fit
for applying NFTs to mark their digital ownership on the blockchain. Among the above-mentioned marketplaces,
encrypted artwork has turned to be the fastest-growing one in NFT application. It boasts irreplaceable
advantages for both creators and investors.
NFTs for creators:
characterized by being rare, indivisible, and unique. They share certain properties with blockchain tokens.
Based on these properties, if a work is made into an NFT, it can easily be proved that the creator owns this
work, and its future ownership and pricing history can be easily tracked. In the NFT market, works can be
displayed and sold conveniently.
traditional artwork transactions will generate no additional profits for the creator after the work is sold,
even if the price goes sky-high in the future. By contrast, in NFT transactions, a creator can receive
resale royalties from every subsequent trading. An NFT makes it easy to verify its scarcity, to transact,
and to bring original creators profits repeatedly, which bring artists stronger motivations to
NFTs for investors:
traditional investments, NFTs have such exclusive features as ownership, transferability, and authenticity.
For investors, NFTs can help to prove ownership effectively. Its scarcity and high liquidity make NFTs a
good fit for investment, from which investors can obtain short-term speculative gains, get more fans or
certain privileges, fulfill social needs or pursue collecting hobbies.
