3 Facts About NFTs You Probably Don't Know
Through decentralized financial (DeFi) apps, the interoperability of NFTs means they can be used as collateral to secure loans. Platforms such as NFTfi and Drops.co mean NFT owners can use their assets to access liquidity when they need it.
Unlike the traditional art market where forgeries are rife, NFTs contain code that proves provenance and ownership without a shadow of a doubt using a blockchain’s permissionless ledger. With over 50% of art on the traditional market likely to be fake, this gives NFTs a massive edge over the alternative.
While the NFT market has been growing, so has the competitive esports scene, which is now worth almost $2 billion with an estimated 291 million esports viewers by 2024. NFTs are seen as a way for e-sports competitors to potentially prove ownership of an exclusive skin or produce highlight NFTs similar to Dapper Labs’ NBA Top Shot.
