What are NFT and Crypto Art?
Yes, I know, is hard to believe that the world is getting into that science fiction movie scene where life became digital and virtual, but the future is now, and we are at the beginning of this movie scene keep on going with the mission that God gives to me.
In this article, I will give you some basic information to understand this new NFT concept and also give you basic steps to start dabbling in this new digital area.
Welcome to metaverse!
Let’s start with the basics.
What NFT means?
A non-fungible (meaning unique, non-replaceable) token (NFT) is a unique digital code representing a kind of digital item. It could be digital art or music, for example.
An NFT is secured and stored on a public blockchain. One token is not interchangeable for another, and the token cannot be divided.
There are many different types of non-fungible tokens, and they can be created on well-known blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Unlike NFTs, those assets are fungible, meaning they can be replaced or exchanged with another identical one of the same values, much like a dollar bill.
How does Crypto-Art works?
It begins when Ivan transforms his work into crypto art, mean, taking his work to a parallel and virtual world. After the process, this creation is protected and encrypted, thus guaranteeing both its authenticity and its authorship.
Its authenticity is ensured under blockchain technology, a chain of encrypted and decentralized blocks that do not depend on the control of a third party but the management of the users themselves. The most paradigmatic case is that of cryptocurrencies, whose purpose is economic. However, in the world of crypto art, this system is used to acquire direct authorship between two people.
