What is an NFT?
NFT is an abbreviation of Non-fungible token. It is a non-interchangeable unit of data that is stored on the blockchain. So, it means the data that we store digitally on different websites, like images, videos, art, graphic design work, etc. We can’t interchange that by using the blockchain. We can sell out and trade the NFT by using cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, ether, etc.

When a person purchases an NFT through a platform then he claims a public certificate of authenticity or the certificate of ownership of that NFT.
