What the NFT tokens are? Are they worth to invest?? Is this a new trend in crypto world??
NFT are non-fungible tokens which represent something unique. NFT tokens are mostly useful for any applications that require unique digital items for example games, digital art, digital-collectibles. One NFT is not equal to any other NFT, either in value or in the properties of the token itself. Most common example of an NFT is the ERC721 that operates on the Ethereum network. There are other tokens standards such as the ERC 1155 which was developed by Enjin as a new standard for defining video game tokens, which also runs on the Ethereum network. Each token is assigned a digital hash that distinguishes it from every other NFT of its kind. NFTs are now being developed across multiple industries. Fiirst applications are across the Gaming, Artwork, and Collectibles industries, however, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Real Estate, Event Ticketing, Brand Licensing, and Tokenizing of real world assets. For example Nike applied for an NFT patent back in 2019.
Non-fungible token (NFT) is a cryptographic token whose main feature is the individual value of each artwork, most associated with the game CryptoKitties. In other words, each NFT token is unique to the other tokens in the chain.
NFT is essentially a unique representation of a resource or commodity in the form of a virtual token. Through cryptography, they help to verifiably prove the ownership and authenticity of a resource. Tokens are most often created on the blockchain Ethereum platform in the ERC-721 protocol.
For example, an airplane ticket - in an airplane everyone has the same - but they are issued personally, or a work of art painted by an artist - each image may have a different value than the other.
You can think of NFT tokens as collector's cryptocurrencies, they are one of a kind and there is only one piece of each NFT token.
Most often they are created on the Ethereum blockchain in the ERC-721 or ERC-1155 standard. They can represent in-game items such as character skins, items, virtual earth or virtual football cards.
Another popular NFT application is virtual art. Token representing a given work of art can be purchased directly from the artist or at one of the popular marketplaces.
Tokens can be stored after purchase or creation at the Ethereum address, many popular wallets such as Metamask and TrustWallet support collector's assets.
Is it worth investing in non-fungible tokens? You cannot give a clear answer here, in the case of blockchain game items the price of a given token will depend on the popularity and economy of the game. It depends on whether the item will improve the gameplay or give the player a certain status. I am not personally interested in investing in game related tokens.
However, when it comes to tokens that represent art, the question whether it is worth it can not be answered here either. Each token represents something different and the art itself is very subjective. As with traditional works of art, they are worth as much as someone can pay for them.
Here, the price of a given token can be influenced by many factors such as: the creator and his reputation, date of creation, price of similar works and, of course, appearance.
Personally, I was very interested in the cryptic art market and I am going to allocate a few ETHs for it, but it is worth noting that predicting in which direction such an investment will go is very difficult and maybe even impossible.
