So… what actually is an NFT?!
The question a lot of us were and still are asking!
An NFT (A non-fungible token) is a digital token which is built on blockchain technology. They are used to uniquely identify assets which can represent both a digital asset such as artwork, a video or an image, but it can also track real-world assets, a house or a car for example. Where proving authenticity of items may prove difficult in real-life, NFTs allow you to prove authenticity as well as ownership and even dates and times you acquired them. Because it is on the blockchain (which means the activities can be viewed by the public and can’t be amended) this means it cannot be copied or forged either.
How do I buy an NFT?
So there are lots of platforms which artists sell their NFT coins on and each is a little different. It was really important to us to sell Sophie Tea’s first NFT on a platform that was easy to use and secure for our customers. We chose to release in collaboration with Future Art on Nifty Gateway as the process is really simple for first time NFT buyers, you can use your debit/credit card and there are no gas fees unlike other platforms.
