Non-Fungible Tokens or NFTs are referred to any digital asset associated with the blockchain. Every NFT is unique, not interchangeable and inseparable. The digital content that is classified as NFT mostly fall under the following categories:
- Domain names
- Virtual land, etc.
The Blockchain ledger records the transaction and provides a transparent permanent track record and proof of ownership.

If the creator explicitly mentions in the Smart Contract about retaining the copyright, the buyer doesn’t get the authority to share or make copies of that asset.
The intrinsic features of an NFT include:
- Easy interaction with other ecosystems
NFTs have a broad spectrum of use cases across various industries:
- Media and Entertainment
- Real Estate
