Digital Art sold for $69 million What Are NFTs? Why Are They Worth Millions Suddenly? Explained!

This Digital Art was Sold for $69 Million. I'm not shouting, you are!?! We will talk more about this later!

NFT abbreviates as Non-Fungible Tokens. To tell you what is that? Let me explain What is 'Fungible'?

Fungible means they are not unique. Suppose I can exchange with you Five 100 dollars with One 500 dollar note Or a BITCOIN. That means their value can be matched. You can equal the value of one with other. Got it?

    What is 'Non- Fungible Token'?

    • Non-Fungible means Unique. They are One of a Kind. 
    • They cannot be valued equally with anything. Yes, they are a single pieced. 
    • If you own one, you are only one in the World! Yes. 
    • For example like Monalisa painting, You can take a photo or make a duplicate of it. But there will only ever be one Monalisa Painting by Davinci. 
    • While Answer to the Digital Currency is given by Cryptocurrency and Now the digital art is taken to another level by NFTs.
    • Yes, you may have a doubt the digital art is copied and made duplicate countless times in the internet. Not so fast...Bro!
    • That's where the Non Fungible Tokens come. The digital art is "Tokenised"...And the art form is given a digital certificate to ensure the authenticity of the original.
    Enough with the Basics...Lets get to it's work.

    How does an NFT Work?

    • At very high level, Most NFTs are part of the Etherium Block chain. You know what is a Ethereum right? No. Okay it is another Cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. 
    • The Ethereum Block chain stores information. And other Cryptocurrencies also started their own NFTs too.
    • The digital collectible information distinguishes from each NFT to another NTT making it impossible to duplicate, or copied. 
    • The Vast Majority of Tokens were built by 2 Ethereum tokens i.e ERC-721 and ERC-1155.
    • Recently TRON introduced NFT standard TRC-721.

    Positive Sides of NFT

    • A NFT cannot be destroyed. All the data is stored in Block chain in the form of Tokens. No token can be destroyed. Cool!
    • Let me tell you something. When you buy a CD of a movie. You don't own the movie. You just purchased license to watch the movie. 
    • When you buy an NFT, you are the owner of it.
    • NFTs cannot be divided. Like Coins are divided into Dollars and Cents. And Bitcoins are divided into Bitcoin Santoshi.
    • NFTs cannot be divided into smaller things. They come and remain as a whole Item.
    • NFTs can be Verified. This comes from the benefit of Cryptocurrency block chain, where the data stored in it can be verified and traced back to the original artist, no need of any third-party mediator.

    Negative Sides Of NFT

    • Heavy Energy Consumption. To give you a glance about the issue. Read the Next point.
    • The Annual Energy of Ethereum Block chain where these NFTs are stored are what a small country like Bahrain uses. YES!

    • And all his efforts became invain in few months. 
    • The Sale of his NFTs for 10 seconds for thousands of Dollars consumed 8.7 MW hours of Energy which is equivalent to 2 years of Energy use in Lemercier's Studio.

    Why Do NFTs worth So Much?

    I don't know Man. You should ask Jewelery lovers like Diamonds Or Platinum Or Gold. Does that Shiny Metal need to be worth that much? Does wearing them show your status! Yes. Likewise. Although NFTs cannot be wear but they are worth much more than them. To help you I will quote PLATO. 

    "Beauty Lies in the Eye Of Beholder."
