What is a NFT ?

  • A Non Fungible Token (NFT) contains exclusive cryptographic tokens that exists on a blockchain which could not be replicated.
  • When an individual purchases a NFT, they are essentially buying the rights of ownership of the NFT. 
  • Classification of NFTs can include images, avatars, videos and artwork

Why it Matters 

A trend in NFTs has been showcased not only in western societies, but in Southeast Asian countries as well. According to a forecast by Finder, they had forecast the adoption rate of NFTs with countries such as Philippines (41.5%), Thailand (34.5%), and Malaysia (34.4%). 

 In a Nutshell

With the ever-increasing trend of NFTs appearing through various social media outlets, individuals and businesses could conduct research on this innovation and potentially integrate it into their personal lives and business activities.
