NFTs or non-fungible tokens are new to the world but they have become highly popular in recent times. The working of NFTs has proved to be smooth and hassle-free as well as interesting. These tokens store digital data that include audio, video, and images. These digital data are stored in blockchains that are represented by a token.
The most unique quality of NFTs is they cannot be interchanged like any currency and are unique for each digital data. This is what is responsible for the daily NFT growth. The artists who have to enter the NFT world have to pay a small fee of around $40 to $100. These artists can then store their artworks on the blockchain in the form of a token that is unique to them.
As a result of growing popularity, various in-person NFT galleries have been opened up. Owing to the relaxation of Covid-19 regulations in various countries, these galleries are opening up and you definitely need to visit one.
