NFT “Non-Fungible Token”
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger. Because each token is uniquely identifiable. An NFT differs from blockchain cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. An NFT functions like cryptographic tokens, but, unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, an NFT is not mutually interchangeable, hence not fungible. While all bitcoins are equal, each NFT may represent a different underlying asset and thus may have different ownership of an NFT that does not inherently grant copyrights to the digital asset a token represents. While someone may sell an NFT representing their work, the buyer will not necessarily receive copyright privileges when ownership of the NFT is changed and so the original owner is allowed to create more NFTs of the same work.NFT is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, which can be sold and traded. The NFT can be associated with a particular digital or physical asset and a license to use the asset for a specified purpose. An NFT can be traded and sold on digital markets. The extralegal nature of NFT trading usually results in an informal exchange of ownership over the asset that has no legal basis for enforcement, often conferring little more than use as a status symbol.
NFTs function like cryptographic tokens, but, unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Etereum, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable, hence not fungible. While all bitcoins are equal, each NFT may represent a different underlying asset and thus may have a different value. NFTs are created when blockchains string records of cryptographic hash, a set of characters identifying a set of data, onto previous records, therefore, creating a chain of identifiable data blocks. – Wikipedia
