What is an NFT?

Let’s talk about it. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a clue about NFTs. We will take you to the NFT world. First keep in mind that if your friend has told you just to sell your pet’s picture as an NFT, it is not that easy.

NFT or non-fungible tokens, are digital tokens that are stored on the blockchain. Despite cryptocurrencies where two coins are equal, for example, there is no difference between two Bitcoins, each NFT is unique and people can use it as an ownership document to prove their asset’s ownership.

Most of the time files are not stored on the blockchain instead a link to the NFT and a token which is its Ownership document, are stored on the blockchain.

You can sell any digital file as an NFT but if you are searching for an NFT market with an easy buying and selling process you will be limited to marketplaces with specific support formats. For the first time, your NFT can be a picture, video, or sound file.


Step 1: be sure that you want to sell an NFT

If you want to make an NFT just because others do the same you should consider that there is a transaction fee. If your NFT is sold on the Ethereum blockchain each transaction on Ethereum has its fee and costs amount which is paid to the miners and the fee is called ‘gas’ on Ethereum blockchain. The amount of gas that you pay is different from transaction to transaction. Notice that paying the gas doesn’t guarantee that your transfer has been done although most of the transfers are done successfully.
