What Is An NFT In Cryptocurrency?
NFTs, or “non-fungible tokens,” are a type of cryptocurrency that represents a unique asset. Unlike other types of cryptocurrency, NFTs cannot be exchanged for other assets; they are completely unique and therefore have a higher value. NFTs are often used to represent digital art, collectibles, or in many cases, Digital Assets like Blog Posts or website properties. In this blog post, I will attempt to answer the question of What is an NFT in Cryptocurrency and on the Blockchain, and of how this thing actually works. As a side note, I am really enjoying writing these blog posts about obscure financial products that likely no one should ever own, so stay tuned for more stuff on things like SPACs, Crypto, NFTs, and a host of other crazy alternative investment assets.
Why Have NFTs Suddenly Hit the Market?
In the past year, NFTs have become increasingly popular, with many people buying and selling them as a way to invest in digital assets.
NFTs are stored on a blockchain, which is a distributed database that allows for secure and transparent transactions. When you buy or sell an NFT, the transaction is recorded on the blockchain and can be seen by anyone. This transparency is one of the main reasons why NFTs have become so popular.
Another reason for the popularity of NFTs is that they are completely unique. Unlike traditional assets such as stocks or commodities, each NFT is one of a kind. This uniqueness makes them more valuable and collectible. The Non Fungible Token is essentially going to be the currency of the Metaverse in the future.
How NFTs Relate To The Metaverse
The Metaverse is a virtual world that is built on the blockchain. It is a decentralized, secure, and transparent platform that allows for the creation and exchange of NFTs. The Metaverse is often compared to the Matrix, as it is a digital world that exists parallel to our own.
NFTs are the currency of the future, if I can find a way to buy one on a legitimate exchange I will definitely let you know.
How Do You Sell An NFT Once You Own One?
If you’re looking to cash in on your NFT, there are a few things you need to do. First, you need to find an exchange that allows for the trading of NFTs. Once you’ve found an exchange, you’ll need to create an account and deposit your NFT into your account. After your NFT is in the account, you will need to first (and pardon my basic introduction to this as I am almost as new to these as likely the reader of this is) convert the NFT into cryptocurrency, most notably Ethereum, which if I am not mistaken is the only way to purchase and offload NFTs. Once you get to the point where you have Ethereum it is fairly easy to convert this digital asset into fiat, via Coinbase or another Digital Exchange for a small fee.
Are There Any Exchange Traded Funds for NFTs Yet?
Not that I am aware of, but there likely will be at some point. The reason for this is that with the growth in popularity of NFTs, there will be a greater demand for products and services related to them. This includes exchange traded products such as ETFs. So far, there does not appear to be any ETFs on the market or that are applying for status on the NYSE with the SEC.
Final Thoughts On The Nature Of Growing Speculative Products In The Investment World of 2022
As a final side note to close out this blog post, I will say that the amount of financial products that are highly speculative and borderline ridiculous that have popped up in the past 24 months since COVID started is truly spectacular. Among these are:
SPACs, or blank check IPO companies
A massive prevalence of Hedge Fund Alternative Investments In The Wealth Management Space
Massively leveraged housing bubble.
Just about every millionaire or average joe getting into buying a rental property with no experience at doing so.
Just to name a few.
