I started experimenting with NFTs back in March 2021 as a way to offer some of my most esteemed work to anyone interested in owning it.
What's an NFT?
First and foremost, a non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital identifier that is recorded in a blockchain and used to certify ownership and authenticity of a digital item. That item could be many things such as a piece of art, an event ticket, a membership pass, a claim to a bottle of Johnny Walker Whiskey or a voucher for a pair of shoes from Puma.
With blockchain technology, the provenance is transparent, verifiable and immutable, so right-mouse-click-saving (aka. copying) someone's NFT art is about as useful and valuable as a picture of the Mona Lisa in your camera roll. The real value is within the token itself which can be sold or traded but not copied or substituted.
For those interested in owning some of my work, I've published some of my art as NFTs below.
Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions about NFTs, blockchain or web3 technology in general :-)
