An NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger (blockchain). The NFT can be associated with a particular digital or physical asset. The unique identity and ownership of an NFT is verifiable via the blockchain ledger. Artists use NFT as an ownership contract that is linked to their publicly hosted digital contents like video, image, or music and transfer the NFT to the buyer as a certificate of ownership. NFTs have found practical applications in various fields, prominently in art, gaming, music, real estate and more.
