3 Facts About NFTs You Probably Don't Know
Forgery doesn’t exist in the NFT world
With some experts warning that over 50% of all art on the market is likely fake, the risks of investing in physical art are great. NFTs offer a solution to this, offering artists a way to prove and establish a chain of ownership using the blockchain ledger.
Anything digital can become an NFT
Literally, anything digital can become an NFT. Though most of the buzz surrounds the selling of digital art and collectibles, the flexibility of the technology means almost anything can be tokenized. Domain names, in-game assets, tweets, songs, and videos, just to name a few things, can all be linked to a smart contract, establishing proof of ownership
The first NFT project was Colored Coins in 2012
Despite not fully supporting the application, the first attempt at NFTs can be traced back to the Bitcoin blockchain. The project was called Colored Coins and sought to expand the use of Bitcoin beyond currency. By setting up a meta-data layer on top of Bitcoin, the project set up IPOs to tie real-world assets to digital tokens. The project is still active today.
