What is Non-Fungible Token (NFT)?
According to a BBC report, in economics, fusible assets are units that can be easily converted – such as money. With paisa, you can replace Rs 5 note with Rs 10 note and it will have the same value.
However, if something is non-fungible, it will be impossible to do so. This means that this non-fungible asset has a unique quality, so it cannot be interchanged with anything else. This item can range from a house to a painting of Monalisa.
Most NFTs are part of the Etherian blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin or Dogecoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs.
- NFT platform Rario launched a cricket-based digital collectibles platform in August and has partnered with former Indian cricketer Zaheer Khan.
- Fashion designer Manish Malhotra also recently sold fashion-themed NFTs on the WazirX NFT marketplace. The platform said they were sold out within minutes.
Salman Khan’s fans are looking very happy with the announcement of launching NFT. Many people have reacted to this on Twitter.
